    Learning From Deep Brain Stimulation: The Fallacy of Techno-Solutionism and the Need for ‘Regimes of Care’.John Gardner & Narelle Warren - 2019 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 22 (3):363-374.
    Deep brain stimulation is an effective treatment for the debilitating motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders. However, clinicians and commentators have noted that DBS recipients have not necessarily experienced the improvements in quality of life that would be expected, due in large part to what have been described as the ‘psychosocial’ impacts of DBS. The premise of this paper is that, in order to realise the full potential of DBS and similar interventions, clinical services need to be (...)

    Controlling Futures? Online Genetic Testing and Neurodegenerative Disease: Comment on “Personal Genomic Testing, Genetic Inheritance, and Uncertainty”.Narelle Warren & John Gardner - 2017 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 14 (4):593-594.
    Online personalized genetic testing services offer accessible and convenient options for satisfying personal curiosity about health and obtaining answers about one’s genetic provenance. They are especially attractive to healthy people who wish to learn about their future risk of disease, as Paul Mason’s case study of “Jordan” illustrates. In this response, we consider how online genetic testing services are used by people diagnosed with a common neurodegenerative disease, Parkinson’s disease, to gain a sense of certainty regarding the future.
