What brain science gave one neuroeconomist...

In an interview in the LA Times, neuroeconomist Paul Zak says brain science let him embrace "love" and "morality":
I think we're taking a real shot at understanding moral philosophy and social organization. Neuroeconomics gives us a new lens to understand how we've organized our world. It lets me embrace words like "morality" or "love" or "compassion" in a non-squishy way. It says, "These are real things, this is really part of our human nature, and we should embrace that."
