Reviews and Awards
"A wave of new and proposed technologies to alter the brain have enlivened debate about when interventions should be considered morally and legally permissible. The editors have assembled a top-notch group of international contributors with the philosophical and scientific knowledge to make real progress. The contributions are wide-ranging, insightful, and rigorous and should be read by scholars, students, and thoughtful laypeople interested in how new technologies are shaping and will continue to shape law, medicine, and society more generally." -Adam Kolber, Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School"
"This timely cutting-edge collection vividly demonstrates why neurolaw's transdisciplinary lens is required to address current and emerging pressing questions regarding the justification of legal systems, their laws, and practices. Whether those questions concern the bases of moral (and legal) responsibility, the defensible deployment of neurointerventions, or the legal regulation of their use, careful engagement with neuroscience and psychology is essential. The contributors to this collection take up this task, expertly synthesizing science, philosophy, and legal scholarship. An essential read for anyone wishing to stay abreast of developments in this fast-paced, sophisticated, and important flourishing field." -Hannah Maslen, Deputy Director, Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, University of Oxford; Editor-in-Chief, Neuroethics"
