Nature NeuroPod: Neuroscience Meets Military Technology
Jonathan Moreno tells Nature podcast host Kerri Smith about what happens when neuroscience meets warfare. Be prepared for soldiers who don’t need sleep and detainees who can be chemically induced to trust their captors.
Also in the podcast, Malcolm Dando of the University of Bradford responds by calling attention to the “dual-use dilemma,” the fact that new technologies can be used for malign purposes as well as benign ones. Oxford neuroscientist Russel Foster discusses the notion of sleepless soldiers and government oversight and his responsibility as a bench scientist to inform the government about how the military can apply scientific research.
