Research investigates the effects of genetic relatedness, sex, and age on moral decision in a life-or-death thought experiment in ethics known as the Trolley Problem. The original Trolley Problem forces the reader to decide whether they would save the lives of five people tied to a track by flipping a switch to sacrifice the life of one person tied to an alternate track.
