A recent post at Neuroskeptic discusses whether neuroimaging studies may provide a misleading picture of the brain. The issue is made relevant due to recent studies that demonstrate that for simple tasks, the brains were more or less globally active: Both studies found that pretty much the whole brain “lit up” when people are doing [...]

Thanks, stumblers!

Just noticed that the stats have skyrocketed – and it’s mostly due to StumbleUpon (this wonderful sharing service for pointing each other to good new pages you’d otherwise would never have found) So, hello to everyone I strongly encourage you not only to go through the first page, but also scroll our backlog.

We are back!

Dear readers. Back in 2005 Thomas and I started Brainethics to debate the consequenses of neuroscience. The background for this decision was the emergence of a new field called neuroethics championed by Martha Farah, Judy Illes and several others. These authors found the ethical implications of modern neuroscience research, which has furnished us with a [...]

Next weekend I am flying to Australia to attend the annual Human Brain Mapping conference, and I promise to write about it extensively. This year, the organizers have scheduled a session on [...]

Out of sync with the blogosphere

Yes, we’ve been! It’s therefore strange — and wonderful — to see that we are still receiving several hundreds of visitors every day. You are all welcome. A brief update on our “missing in action”: Martin has been most busy analysing several paradigms, writing chapters and editing books. I’m sure Martin will send an update [...]

New book on emotion and cognition!

We are back in business after a two months hiatus. I apologize for the lack of posting, but both Thomas and I have been working on a number of projects that haven’t left us much time for thinking about Brainethics stuff. But we are back now, although we are probably not going to be able [...]
