[asa] Hate & the brain

Hi all,

Found this article on yahoo.com, thought it might be of interest:

I was particularly intrigued by this statement made at the end of the article:
"He [Zeki] added that activity in parts of the hate circuit matches the strength of the person's declared intensity of hate, "thus allowing the subjective state of hate to be objectively quantified. This finding may have legal implications in criminal cases, for example."

Any thoughts on this (both the concept that emotions could be "objectively quantified" and that this would have legal implications)?

In Christ,
