Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Neuroscientists are mining nucleic acids, fluids, and brain images for biomarkers of risk of brain disorders. This book brings clarity to several debates on the neuroethics of biomarkers by arguing for the abandonment of a categorical concept of disorder (sick vs. well) and the adoption of an explicitly probabilistic one.
