After COVID-19 ensuring biological security will be a critical necessity. Neuroscience and the Problem of Dual Use focuses on the fact that benignly intended research in the life sciences could be misused for hostile purposes. It details the revolution that is taking place in neuroscience during this period of instability in international security, describes the new major State-funded brain research projects, and suggests ways in which hostile misuse could be prevented in coming decades.

Claims about the transformations enabled by modern science and medicine have been accompanied by an unsettling question in recent years: might the knowledge being produced undermine – rather than further – human and animal well being? On the Dual Uses of Science and Ethics examines the potential for the skills, know-how, information, and techniques associated with modern biology to serve contrasting ends. In recognition of the moral ambiguity of science and technology, each chapter considers steps that might be undertaken to prevent the deliberate spread of disease. Central to achieving this aim is the consideration of what role ethics might serve. To date, the ethical analysis of the themes of this volume has been limited. This book remedies this situation by bringing together contributors from a broad range of backgrounds to address a highly important ethical issue confronting humanity during the 21st century.

Neurotechnology in National Security and Defense: Practical Considerations, Neuroethical Concerns is the second volume in the Advances in Neurotechnology series. It specifically addresses the neuroethical, legal, and social issues arising from the use of neurotechnology in national security and defense agendas and applications. Of particular concern are the use of various neurotechnologies in military and intelligence operations training, acquisition of neurobiological and cognitive data for intelligence and security, military medical operations, warfighter performance augmentation, and weaponization of neuroscience and neurotechnology. The contributors discuss the neuroethical questions and problems that these applications generate as well as potential solutions that may be required and developed. The book examines how developments in neurotechnology in national security and defense agendas are impacted by and affect ethical values and constructs, legal considerations, and overall conduct of the social sphere. Presenting an integrative perspective, leading international experts lay the scientific groundwork and establish the premises necessary to appreciate the ethical aspects of neurotechnology in national security and defense. It is not a question of "if" neurotechnology will be used in such ways, but when, how, and to what extent. Therefore, it is imperative to foster a deeper understanding of neurotechnology, the problems and debates arising from its use in national security and defense, and how such issues can and should be addressed. In doing so, we can guide and govern the use of these innovative neurotechnologies in ways that uphold ethical accountability.

During the last century, advances in the life sciences were used in the development of biological and chemical weapons in large-scale state offensive programmes, many of which targeted the nervous system. This study questions whether the development of novel biological and chemical neuroweapons can be prevented as neuroscience progresses.

This text provides nurses and healthcare providers caring for neurologic patients with the in-depth knowledge of neurophysiology, neuroassessment, and neuromanagement needed to ensure that care is delivered in accordance with best practices. Focusing on the importance of an interdidisciplinary health care team, each neurologic condition or disorder is discussed in a comprehensive, logical format. The text emphasizes the all-important role of the neuroscience nurse and the critical aspects of the core knowledge required to function effectively in multiple clinical settings. The second edition includes a new chapter on critical care management. For each disorder, content has been added or expanded to cover Geriatric Considerations, Case Management, Patient/Family Teaching, Rehabilitation, Nutritional Considerations and Psychosocial Aspects of care. - Each disorder is discussed in a logical, streamlined format - Discussions of each major disorder conclude with a Continuum of Care section - Alerts and Tips are provided throughout to focus special attention on content that can help improve patient care - For each disorder, a special section on Case Management is provided to assist in determining patient needs - A totally revised chapter on the Neuroscience Patient with Pain and Headache focuses on acute and non-malignant chronic pain syndromes - In-depth and comprehensive coverage provides a strong foundation for understanding the complexities of neuroscience nursing today - A comprehensive review of diagnostic tools includes the most up-to-date technology and laboratory studies involved in neurologic diagnoses. - An interdisciplinary team approach to patient management addresses the complex needs of the neuroscience patient - Content for each major disorder offers a comprehensive approach to patient management - A complete chapter is devoted to Adult Neurologic Assessment

General Editor: A.D. Smith High Performance Liquid Chromatography in Neuroscience Research Edited by R. Bruce Holman, Alan J. Cross and Michael H. Joseph This volume in the Handbook Series begins with a succinct introduction to the principles of High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and to the principles of methods development for neuroscience application. The primary emphasis of the book is on detailed and functional description of methods for a wide range of specific groups of neurochemicals, with particular emphasis on the analysis of neurotransmitters and related compounds. The final chapter reviews the application of HPLC to the analysis of central nervous system (CNS)-active drugs. Each chapter is written by experts in their fields. As well as providing a brief overview of the choice of methodologies, they focus on specific methods to provide the maximum amount of practical information based on personal experience, illustrated by material from the analysis of real biological samples.
