Summary
Who should have access to our thoughts, and to what degree? This program presents some of the current scientific research on the thought processes of the human brain, with special attention paid to its clinical applications and its ethical implications. German philosophers Thomas Metzinger and John-Dylan Haynes explain neuroethics, or the social, legal, and ethical repercussions of brain research. In addition, research scientists, such as Harvard professor Alvaro Pascual-Leone, demonstrate how their virtual reality programs, powered by computers and the human brain, can improve the lives of stroke patients and people with paraplegia.
