Abstract: The study used event-related potentials methods combined with a two-choice oddball paradigm in an attempt to add new evidence to the "unified" vs "diverse" debate by looking into the online processing of moral judgments. There were no significant differences in the P2 components of different types of immoral behaviors.All three types of immoral words evoked greater N2 amplitudes than neutral words.Words related to sexual disgust elicited the greatest N2 amplitudes.On P300 and late positive components,sexual disgust words induced greater amplitudes than the other conditions.The main results suggest that moral transgressions about physical harm,dishonest and sexual disgust may share a common mechanism in the early stage of online processing and tend to dissociate from each other in the later stage in the time course of processing.
