Neuroscience and the law

The US Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues recently released the second volume of its two-part report Grey Matters. The report considered ethical issues attendant to the rapid development of neuroscience, and the second volume had a particular focus on the ethical implications of neuroscience research.

One of the authors of the report was Duke University Professor Nita Farahany. Professor Farahany is a leading scholar on the ethical, legal, and social implications of biosciences and emerging technologies, particularly those related to neuroscience.

In an exclusive interview with BioEdge, Professor Farahany shared her thoughts on the complex relationship between neuroscience and the law.
