The first neuroethics-related issue of the American Journal of Bioethics - Neuroscience (which Adam Kolber alerted us to back in June) is up and running. As a teaser, the journal is providing free access to Antonio Damasio's editorial, Neuroscience and Ethics: Intersections, a discussion of neuroscientific research on moral behavior. Here's a snippet:
The ethical questions we ask and the just guidelines we hope to formulate depend on the boundaries of what constitutes ethical behavior, and the setting of those boundaries, may come to be influenced by new knowledge regarding how the brain operates in health and disease.
Several articles may be of particular interest to Neuroethics and Law Blog readers, including a piece on neuroscience and personal responsibility by Stephen Morse. Morse's article on "Brain Overclaim Syndrome" (also previously referenced here) is a personal favorite.
