Dr. Jonathan Pararajasingham's series, "Mind's Matter", discussion thread.
This thread has been created to discuss the series Mind's Matter that British medical doctor Dr. Jonathan Pararajasingham is writing on Nirmukta. The first article in the series has been posted here.
"Fossil rabbits in the Precambrian"
~ J.B.S.Haldane, on being asked to falsify evolution.
Dr. Pararajasingham concludes his first article with:
While this neuroethical theory of psychopathic behaviour must be regarded as provisional, the line of the law should be drawn with it in mind; and we may have to shift its current position very soon.

This Scientific American podcast featuring an interview with cognitive scientist Michael Gazzaniga is a good companion to Dr. Pararajasingham's article, and discusses the potential impact of recent neuroscience discoveries on legal practice along with associated ethical dilemmas.
