Moral judgments of intentional and accidental moral violations across Harm and Purity domains
The purpose of this data is to investigate neural differences within regions associated with Theory of Mind across a) intentional vs accidental moral acts; b) across moral domains (harmful vs impure acts); c) across moral subdomains; d) between morally relevant and nonmoral scenarios. Subjects were scanned while completing a Theory of Mind localizer task, and while completing the moral judgment task. For each scenario, subjects saw a text-based version of the scenario, and rated its moral wrongness on a 1-4 scale. Each scenario text was presented in 4 serial segments, comprising Background, Action, Outcome, and Intent.
