Law and Ethics of Neurotechnology in Criminal Justice (LENC)

Crime comes with enormous societal costs. Neurotechnology could help reduce recidivism and make society safer. But these techniques – in which the brains of offenders may even be changed – entail considerable risks, for instance for a person’s bodily and mental integrity. How can they be applied responsibly?
