Human Rights and Neurotechnology
Imagine the technology existed to either measure or manipulate your brain activity without your consent. Understandably, this would seem uncomfortable at best, and total infringement of human rights at worst. Perhaps this future isn't too far off because a paper recently published in Life Sciences, Society, and Policy explores the idea of expanding human rights to include our cognitive processes. In the expanding world of neuroscience and neurotechnology, it's worth thinking about how we'll protect ourselves moving forward.
