NeuroLaw Rising

Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

It looks like 2007 is the year when the world is beginning to wake up to the broad scale societal implications of neurotechnology. This week's NYTimes magazine's cover article is an excellent piece by Jeffrey Rosen titled "The Trials of Neurolaw: How Advances in Brain Science is Could Transform Our Legal System. The article covers many of the neuroethicists that are working in this area of neuropolicy research. I heartily recommend reading this article, it is very well written and if you have time, check out the blog I posted in 2004 with the same title Neurolaw where I point to most of the same researchers.

Zach, do you think the article left out the phenomena of neuroplasticity and self-directed neuroplasticity -- important components of responsibility? I have posted about the omission here:

I would love to hear your thoughts.
