This preview shows page 1 out of 1 page.

This week’s reading was quote intriguing and touched on so many different points of the neuroscience practices. Neuroscience can have an incredibly profound impact on the psychological treatment practices with the potential to offer better standards for treatments. To achieve these goals there would be a privacy issue. The privacy of individuals would be compromised. Neuroethics is the questioning of the ethical use of neurosciences (Farah, 2005). By using the many different neuroscience practices of functional brain imaging it is something that brings up the questions of ethical use. This question of ethical use is based on the possibility of violating the human right to privacy. Farrow states that the main problem that brain imaging shares with genetics is privacy (Farah, 2005). Another major point she makes is that the public sees the brain scans as more or less an absolute accurate, when in fact it is left up to interpretation (Farah, 2005).
