Seymour, B and Vlaev, I (2012) Can, and should, behavioural neuroscience influence public policy? Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 16. pp. 449-451. ISSN 1364-6613Full text not available from this repository.
Recent years have seen enormous demand amongst policy makers for new insights from the behavioural sciences, especially neuroscience. This demand is matched by an increasing willingness on behalf of behavioural scientists to translate the policy implications of their work. But can neuroscience really help shape the governance of a nation? Or does this represent growing misuse of neuroscience to attach scientific authority to policy, plus a clutch of neuroscientists trying to overstate their findings for a taste of power?. © 2012.
