Description: Where is the line between instinct and free will in humans? How far can technology and medicine go to manipulate the brain? With every new discovery about the human mind, more and more questions emerge about the boundaries of consciousness, responsibility, and how far neuroscience research can go. The fledgling field of neuroethics has sought answers to these questions since the first formal neuroethics conference was held in 2002. This groundbreaking volume collects the expert and authoritative writings published since then that have laid the groundwork for this rapidly expanding debate. "Defining Right and Wrong in Brain Science" traverses the breadth of neuroethics, exploring six broad areas--including free will, moral responsibility, and legal responsibility; psychopharmacology; and brain injury and brain death--in thirty provocative articles. The scientific and ethical consequences of neuroscience research and technology are plumbed by leading thinkers and scientists, from Antonio Damasio's "The Neural Basics of Social Behavior: Ethical Implications" to "Monitoring and Manipulating Brain Function" by Martha J. Farah and Paul Root Wolpe. These and other in-depth chapters articulate the thought-provoking questions that emerge with every new scientific discovery and propose solutions that mediate between the freedom of scientific endeavor and the boundaries of ethicalresponsibility. As science races toward a future that is marked by startling new possibilities for our bodies and minds, "Defining Right and Wrong in Brain Science" is the definitive assessment of the ethical criteria guiding neuroscientists today.
