Impact Assessment of Neuroimaging
High-tech equipment and complex calculations can be used to reveal the activity of the brain. But what good are such colourful «images of the brain»? The TA-SWISS study shows the potential of so-called imaging techniques, for example in diagnosing diseases and in neurosurgery. The study investigated quite different fields of application as well, such as criminal law and marketing. It also demonstrates the limits and risks of these methods.
