Michael Gazzaniga: The Ethical Brain
The Ethical Brain
Cognitive Neuroscience has many issues with respect to the current field of neuroethics. Cognitive neuroscience can help with some current ethical dilemmas such as does the embryo have the moral status of a human being? Perhaps most importantly cognitive neuroscience is building an understanding of how brain research will instruct us on ideas like universal morals possessed by all members of our species. This fundamental development will find cognitive neuroscience becoming central to the modern world's view of ethical universals.
