Overview

Defining Right and Wrong in Brain Science is an authoritative record of the emerging ideas that are defining neuroethics. Edited by University of Calgary philosophy professor Walter Glannon, it is an essential reference for anyone who wants to understand how these issues have taken shape.

Contributors include Adina Roskies, writing on neuroethics for the New millennium, Martha J. Farah and Paul Root Wolpe on monitoring and manipulating brain function, Antonio Damasio on the neural basis of social behavior, and Alan Leshner on ethical issues in taking neuroscience research from bench to bedside. Other thinkers represented in this collection are British Medical Research Council Chairman Colin Blakemore, Patricia Smith Churchland, Arthur Caplan, Paul McHugh, and Anjan Chatterjee.

This book will be indispensable to readers curious about how discoveries in brain science are stirring up classic--and new--questions of ethics.

This new volume is the fifth in The Dana Foundation Series on Neuroethics.
