How the brain suppresses the act of revenge
Researchers from UNIGE have developed an economic game in which a participant is confronted with the fair behaviour of one player and the unfair provocations of another player. They observed which areas were activated as the participant experienced unfairness and anger. Then scientists gave the participant the opportunity to take revenge. They thus identified the location in the brain of activations that are related to the suppression of the act of revenge in the DLPFC.
