Personal Identity, Neuroethics and the Human Brain
Where is the little person in your brain that seems to call the shots? Just as mysteriously, what is the cellular mechanism that unleashes the triggers of gene expression? In short, how come we feel personal identity and apparent agency even though our brains, like our genes, are running automatically? Should any of these realities change our moral sense and our desire for responsible action? Modern brain science offers clues to these enduring questions and suggests our brains are powerful adaptive systems that, working in a social context, allow for all the human values we hold important.
