They study the brain waves of volunteers and found that they responded quickly to reacting to real-life stories of physical pain, but they were much slower in showing compassion and admiration; traits they say are cornerstones of the brain’s human evolution. >> I think to me, the social sites allow you to stay connected even more so with the world and then I think your morality really responds after that.>> When you hear about things that are going on in Africa and things that are going on in the Middle East and things that are happening in America; shootings and planes crashing, it doesn’t have the same effect because they’re coming so quickly. I think there’s not a chance to really process the information and that it does sort of take away from the humanity; the morality of the whatever the information is — whatever the news is. >> To talk more about this I’m joined now by Dr. J. Buzz Von Ornsteiner. And he’s not affiliated with the study, but he is a psychologist in New York City to talk about the connection between the amount of time we all spend online and how it affects our brain. So how are our morals essentially developed, Doctor?>> Well, you know, morals generally come from our parents and how we grow and how we develop and also from our peer relationships. But we are with other people. We’re not on the internet. We’re not texting people. We’re working with people. That’s how we grow, prosper, and lead productive lives and have genuine empathy. >> What’s the caution then? What could that lead up to where the whole generation of people growing up on social networking sites? >> You know, these kind of relationships can skew or our brains and that’s the damage. That’s the fears I have that we may become somewhat socially retarded when it comes to forming good social relationships. The social foundations of good quality relationships are meeting with people face-to-face and talking to them and being able to process what they’re saying and giving them quality attention. >> Alright. Well, I appreciate your insight Dr. J. Buzz Von Ornsteiner joining me via satellite from New York. The perfect takeaway there: nothing replaces face-to-face contact. >> Yes. >> From the CNN Center, I’m Errol Barnett. Each person is guided by his or her own sense of right and wrong.
