This introduction outlines the differences between the neuroscience of ethics and the ethics of neuroscience and describes how the 8 chapters in the book address theoretical and practical issues. It points out that the book is written for an interdisciplinary audience. It also briefly describes the conception of the brain-mind relation that serves as a theoretical foundation for the book and explains its anti-reductionist approach. After some cautionary notes on the limits of neuroimaging, it provides a brief summary of the book’s chapters.

Keywords: anti-reductionism; brain-mind relation; functional neuroimaging; interdisciplinarity; localization; mind reading
