Report contents (excerpts from the IPSJ website)

"The development of neuroscience technology (BrainTech) has been remarkable, and its commercialization and social implementation are advancing rapidly. However, at the moment, it does not pose a threat that undermines the assumptions of jurisprudence and ethics. Nevertheless, it is quite possible that such a situation will arise even tomorrow. We stand at such a crossroads. With an eye on the current situation and the near future, I would like to introduce a trend, "neurolaw," which has recently been the subject of active discussion as a possible response by law (ethics). First, I would like to explain the typical legal system proposed by neurolaw, and then consider some interesting issues in detail. I will also discuss the acceptability of "neurolaw" in Japan, incorporating reactions to a lecture I recently gave on this topic at a bar association."
