Jorge Moll Makes Astounding Changes in Neuroscience Research

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

With a passion to change and innovate research within his country of origin, Brazil, Jorge Moll made it a goal to head an Institute of research and education. He had always had a dream of assisting people who suffered from conditions that lowered the quality of their life. After receiving his M.D. in Neuroscience from the Federal University of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and completed his residency, he went on to receive his Ph.D. in Experimental Pathophysiology from Sao Paulo University. From there is where he made his transition to help as many people as he can.

Jorge Moll became the President and Board Member of D’or Institute of Research and Education (IDOR) as well as the Director of Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit (CBNU) and Neuroinformatics Workgroup, a top ranking laboratory that specializes in diagnostics and imaging. He embarked on his journey to continue research and education in the practices of Neuroscience in Brazil. Working with students, associates, scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs, he is able to gather information in order to build on the Education and Research Center for the benefits of his home country.

In 2006 Jorge Moll Co-headed a study regarding the effects of gift-giving on the brain. During the study, Moll would look closely at brain activity during a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fmri) to detect if there were changes in the brain during the experiment. The results showed that there was a significant change in brain activity, similar to feelings you get during enjoyable activities. This helped research to prove that giving back to your community is hard wired into our brains from times of evolution.

Jorge Moll continues to revolutionize the practices of Neuroscience through the D’or Institute of Research and Education. His research will continue to help us look at the human brain, and how we function. We have so much more to discover about the brain, and Jorge Moll will continue his efforts to dedicate all findings for the future of human kind.
