Unsettling research advances bring neuroethics to the fore.

Nima Dehghani‘s insight:

a whilea go, http://sco.lt/67mTSL, I wrote the following about creating false memories:

Very interesting…This is a good first step in transferring memory from one to another, for good or bad. If one day we can erase memory and rewrite it (which we will do at some point), what are the limits? on whom and how it should be practiced? who should have the permit to do it? Would we be able to detect "real" memories from "implanted" ones? Can we recognize that part of the memory are erased?

 

This Nature commentary too is reflecting upon a very important issue.
