Neuroscience May Supersede Ethics and Law

Science and Engineering Ethics 18 (3):433-437 (2012)
Abstract   Advances in technology now make it possible to monitor the activity of the human brain in action, however crudely. As this emerging science continues to offer correlations between neural activity and mental functions, mind and brain may eventually prove to be one. If so, such a full comprehension of the electrochemical bases of mind may render current concepts of ethics, law, and even free will irrelevant.
