Adam Kolber, Guest-Blogging on Law and Neuroscience:

I'm delighted to say that Adam Kolber of the University of San Diego School of Law, will be guest-blogging this week on law and neuroscience. Prof. Kolber writes and teaches about neuroethics, bioethics, and criminal law. I first learned about him from reading his fascinating Therapeutic Forgetting: The Legal and Ethical Implications of Memory Dampening; he has also written on the ethics of clinical placebo deception, pain detection and privacy, organ transplant rules, and the treatment of apes in standing law.

Prof. Kolber is also the author of the Neuroethics & Law Blog, and, this school year, the Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Fellow at Princeton University.

you can not live in my reality, and I can not live in yours; it is the only truth in my life that is truly my own.

Brainwashing, following the herd, lemmings, ADHD medication; all that falls under altering reality and altering behavior. What is 'brainwashing' and what is good education, for example? Who decides what good is- the psychiatrist, the school principle or the child?

No doctor or law court has the ethical right to alter,modify or strip away another human being's reality if the person has not committed a crime. Yet they do.
As for medical doctors preparing for surgeries, many times they do take advantage of patients; while they are heavily medicated, it is then the patient is asked to sign forms.
