摘要: 神经机制分析是价值观研究的一种新视角。内稳态机制和情绪反应的固有模式可能体现出价值观的神经生物原型。社会认知神经科学试图从子价值观、价值取向、价值观结构等方面寻找价值观的神经实体证据, 也对价值评价、价值决策等相关过程进行了神经活动分析。初步发现了个体价值观与部分脑区活动的相关关系, 涉及前额叶–顶叶–颞叶神经网络带的众多大脑结构。未来研究可沿循静态的价值观结构和动态的价值观加工过程两条线路, 整合和完善现有分散的神经生理研究, 将有助于更系统地理解价值观的神经机制。

Abstract: The analysis of neural mechanism provides a novel perspective for researches on values. The machinery of homeostasis and natural modes of biological response including emotions already embody human values. Social cognitive neuroscience tries to find neural and physical evidences for the values, which did some researches about specific values, value orientation and the construction of values, and analyzed the neural activities during valuation and value–based decisions. It found tentatively that the personal values is related to the mode of neural activities, involving numerous brain structures in frontal, parietal and temporal cortex. The future study can focus on the static structure and dynamic process of values, integrate and improve the existing separate neural evidences, to understand the values systematically.

Key words: values, biological antecedent, neural mechanism, prefrontal cortex, fMRI, the structure of values
