Genetic Engineering

Ethical Questions

Over the last decade there has been mounting public interest in genetic engineering and the potential and pitfalls of associated emerging technologies. These technologies promise much, potentially even treatments for brain diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, and yet genetic modification of the brain is something many would feel uneasy about, despite the horrors it tries to mitigate. 'Neuro-genetic engineering' may slip over into other areas, including psychological therapy and cognitive enhancements, changing the way society views its minds forever.
