Stanford Law School’s Hank Greely will discuss how we are in the middle of a revolution in our understanding of how the human brain works. This deeper understanding will inevitably change many aspects of our social world. If things go well, we may develop better treatments for Parkinson's disease, depression, and autism, but we may also develop better "treatments" for disliked habits, sexual orientations, political views, religious beliefs, or just personalities. When and how should those be used? What are the responsibilities of neuroscientists in the middle of all of this?
