Recent advances in the brain sciences have dramatically improved our understanding of brain function. As we find out more and more about what makes us tick, we must stop and consider the ethical implications of this new found knowledge. This ground-breaking book on the emerging field of neuroethics answers many pertinent questions, such as: What makes monitoring and manipulating the human brain so ethically challenging? Will having a new biology of the brain through
imaging make us less responsible for our behavior and lose our free will? Should certain brain scan studies be disallowed on the basis of moral grounds? A distinguished group of contributors from a wide range of fields make this an invaluable introduction to neuroethics.

Psychological Medicine,Vol 37, This book...helps to define the field, as well as demonstrating the importance and relevance of this area to neuroscience. ... overall this book is excellent and should be regarded as essential reading for neuroscientists who should educate themselves in this important and newly emerging field.


The Lancet Neurology, Vol 5 Illes's book is a very firm foundation for the specialty of neuroethics, and I recommend it very highly.
