Persuasive Intent

A recent paper, published in Science by UBC neuroethics professor Dr. Peter Reiner and University of Pennsylvania medical ethics professor Dr. Anna Wexler, questions the efficacy of direct-to-consumer (DTC) neurotechnologies.

Their paper proposes the creation of a third-party “working group” that would “survey the main domains of DTC neurotechnology and provide succinct appraisals of potential harms and probable efficacy.”
