Latest YouTube Interview: Jesper Ryberg

Should neurotechnologies that affect emotional regulation, empathy and moral judgment, be used to prevent offenders from re-offending? Is it morally acceptable to offer more lenient sentences to offenders in return for participation in neuroscientific treatment programs? Is it possible to administer neurointerventions as a type of punishment? Is there a risk that the dark history of compulsory brain interventions in offenders will repeat itself? In this interview with Dr Katrien Devolder (Oxford), Professor Jesper Ryberg (Roskilde) argues that  there are no good in-principle objections to using neurointerventions to prevent crime, BUT (!!)  that given the way criminal justice systems currently function, we should not currently use these interventions!!
