Neuroethics and Criminal Law: What do We Believe, and What do We Want to Achieve? 

I found Neuroscience to be a fascinating concept earlier on in my undergrad and wondered about the advances it was making as a scientific field of study. My interest was further heightened when I learned of a DARPA project that involved a disabled woman, probes that were inserted into her brain and her being able to fly an F-16 flight simulator with her mind. That lit a fire in me to investigate into the probity in that project. My quest for truth, the logical and yet passionate nature of how I see the world and my dedication to social justice are personal qualities that have spurred my desire to dive into this field.
