9780198567219: Neuroethics: Defining the issues in theory, practice, and policy

Recent advances in the brain sciences have dramatically improved our understanding of brain function. As we find out more and more about what makes us tick, we must stop and consider the ethical implications of this new found knowledge. Will having a new biology of the brain through imaging make us less responsible for our behavior and lose our free will? Should certain brain scan studies be disallowed on the basis of moral grounds? Why is the media so interested in reporting results of brain imaging studies? What ethical lessons from the past can best inform the future of brain imaging?

These compelling questions and many more are tackled by a distinguished group of contributors to this volume on neuroethics. The wide range of disciplinary backgrounds that the authors represent, from neuroscience, bioethics and philosophy, to law, social and health care policy, education, religion and film, allow for profoundly insightful and provocative answers to these questions, and open up the door to a host of new ones. The contributions highlight the timeliness of modern neuroethics today, and assure the longevity and importance of neuroethics for generations to come.

Recensione:

This book...helps to define the field, as well as demonstrating the importance and relevance of this area to neuroscience. ... overall this book is excellent and should be regarded as essential reading for neuroscientists who should educate themselves in this important and newly emerging field. ( Psychological Medicine,Vol 37,)

Illes's book is a very firm foundation for the specialty of neuroethics, and I recommend it very highly. ( The Lancet Neurology, Vol 5)
