Healio: Anthony Jack, assistant professor of cognitive science, philosophy and psychology, discussed the difference in the brain when soldiers objectify enemies as opposed to dehumanizing them. “Our evidence shows that objectification frees up mental resources, whereas animalistic dehumanization uses up all our resources, both empathetic and analytic,” Jack said.
