Yes, I especially like the studies done on human infants, and on other animals. One human infant study that stuck out for me, which you may know of, was one which suggested that human infants (as young as 9 months) preferred (75% preference) 'punishing' puppets to 'helping' puppets when either (punishing or helping) was done to another puppet that was 'not like me'. This suggests that negative human moral judgements are innately biased against 'others not like me'. Which is a bit chilling:

Basically, it's Punch and Judy.
