Jorge Moll is Changing the Way Neurologists Think

Jorge Moll is a highly-intelligent, hard-working Neurologist and is the President-director and leading member of the governing board of the D’Or Institue for Research and Education.


Jorge Moll was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Ever since his childhood, Moll had a strong passion for medicine which ultimately became the driving force of motivation for him.


Moll attended Federal University of Rio de Janeiro from 1989-1997 where he studied Neurology and ultimately earned his master’s degree. After that, he went to The University of Sao Paulo where he earned his Doctor of Philosophy in Experimental Physiopathology.


Jorge Moll developed a strong sense of wanting to positively affect society. Therefore, he founded the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit. The Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit that he developed served as a place which helped people experiencing neuropsychiatric disorders. Ever since then, Moll has been highly motivated to help and give back to society!


Nature’s Scientific Reports have revealed such great things. Their report shows how advanced society is becoming via technology, personal intellect, and well-performed studies.


Based on the evidence, soccer fans hold strong-bonds in real-life settings. By saying this, they’re meaning that soccer fans mainly located in the cities of Brazil hold a deeper connection while attending soccer games than every other person. In order to retrieve evidence for the study, researchers obtained 27 soccer fans located in Brazil and asked them questions about whether they’d donate money to their teams’ fans, another teams fans, or not donate any money whatsoever. The reason for this type of study was to basically get an in-depth look at the neural mechanisms that create altruistic motivation. Furthermore, by asking the fans if they’d donate money it really opened up the answers to their real motivations.


Observations from the study easily provided researchers with the correct information. Studies showed that soccer fans gave their best efforts in benefiting unknown fans of their favorite soccer team, rather than people who weren’t fans of the same soccer team.


So, according to the doctors of this study, there is a strong need for knowing and having a general understanding of the neural mechanisms involving group behavior. With an understanding of that, they can develop a way of addressing anti-social behaviors and sports-related attitudes.
