  • The Psychological Process Underlying Attitudes Toward Human-Animal Chimeric Brain Research: An Empirical Investigation

    Abstract

    This study adopted an empirical method to investigate lay people’s attitudes toward the bioethical issues of human-animal chimeric brains. The results of online surveys showed that (1) people did not entirely reject chimeric brain research, but showed slightly more negative responses than ordinary animal testing; and that (2) their ethical concerns arose in connection with the perception that chimerism in the brain would humanize the animal. This means that people’s psychology was consistent with the ethical argument that crossing the human-animal boundary would bring moral confusion to our society. Meanwhile, it was not in line with another argument that moral status depended on having high capacities, and that chimerism would cause a problem if it enhanced animals’ capacities. Furthermore, this study analyzed additional psychological factors related to people’s moral judgment and the relationship among those factors. Several psychological factors, such as the perception that chimeric brain research is unnatural, were identified as mediating the relationship between perception of animal humanization and ethical concerns about creating and using chimeric brains. Introducing an empirical approach to the ethics of human-animal chimeric brains brought two findings: (1) this study informed us of socially shared intuition regarding this novel technology; and (2) it unveiled the psychological processes behind people’s ethical concerns in more detail than they spontaneously mentioned. These findings will help to build normative arguments and future policies that are understandable and acceptable to society.

     View Summary

    In recent years, smart health (s-Health) services have gained momentum worldwide. The s-Health services obtain personal information and aim to provide efficient health and medical services based on these data. In Japan, active efforts to implement these services have increased, but there is a lack of social acceptance. This study examined social acceptance concerning various factors such as trust in the city government, perceived benefits, perceived necessity, perceived risk, and concern about interventions for individuals. An online survey was conducted, and Japanese participants (N = 720) were presented with a vignette depicting a typical s-Health service overview. The results of structural equation modeling showed that trust was positively related to perceived benefit and necessity and negatively related to perceived risk and concern about interventions for individuals. Perceived benefit and trust were positively related to social acceptance, and perceived risk was negatively related to acceptance. The model obtained in this study can help implement s-Health services in public. Empirical studies that contribute to improving public health by investigating the social acceptance of s-Health services should be conducted in the future.

  • We perceive a mind in a robot when we help it

     View Summary

    People sometimes perceive a mind in inorganic entities like robots. Psychological research has shown that mind perception correlates with moral judgments and that immoral behaviors ( i.e., intentional harm) facilitate mind perception toward otherwise mindless victims. We conducted a vignette experiment ( N = 129; M-age = 21.8 +/- 6.0 years) concerning human-robot interactions and extended previous research's results in two ways. First, mind perception toward the robot was facilitated when it received a benevolent behavior, although only when participants took the perspective of an actor. Second, imagining a benevolent interaction led to more positive attitudes toward the robot, and this effect was mediated by mind perception. These results help predict what people's reactions in future human-robot interactions would be like, and have implications for how to design future social rules about the treatment of robots.

     View Summary

    裁判員制度は市民の司法参加の一つとして2009年に導入された制度である。しかし、この制度は「市民参加は理性的な意思決定の妨げになる」「裁判員は被害者に同情し、偏った判断をするおそれがある」といった批判を受けていた。本研究では裁判員制度に対する人々の態度の規定因を実証的に検討し、「裁判は感情の影響を受けず理性的に行われるべきだ」という考え(理性的裁判イメージ)を強く持つ人ほど裁判員制度に反対することを示した。人は理性と感情を対立的に捉える素朴な理解の枠組みを持っていることが指摘されているが、本研究はこのような理解の枠組みが司法制度に対する態度に関連することを明らかにした。さらに、「市民の感覚を裁判に反映する」という裁判員制度の導入目的を参加者に教示すると、上述の理性的裁判イメージと裁判員制度への賛否の関連が消失した。この結果は、制度に関する情報を提供することで人々の態度が肯定的に変化する可能性を示している。多くの市民が司法参加に否定的な態度を示している現状を踏まえると、市民の積極的な司法参加を促し、裁判員制度の円滑な運用を実現する上で本研究の知見は重要な意味を持つだろう。最後に、本研究の知見を外国の司法制度に適用できる可能性、および本研究の限界について議論した。
