Show Summary Details


Problems of brain imaging and privacy assume a different character when considered in the context of national security needs. National security considerations are matters of state sovereignty and are constrained mainly by international conventions in to which states have entered. This chapter reviews the implications of that legal and philosophical framework for privacy considerations. It gives examples of brain imaging technologies that may be of interest to national security agencies, particularly for purposes of deception detection and interrogation.

Keywords: national security; privacy; brain imaging technologies; deception; interrogation
