Dr. James Giordano who is a Professor of Neurology and Biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center.

This week’s reflection is based on the research conducted by Dr. James Giordano who is a Professor of Neurology and Biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center. Dr. Giordano is well versed and has published many articles and videos in the topic of Neuroethics, a relatively new field that studies how people function ethically based on the brain and what methods we should have to alter responses to ensure people act ethically.
Your discussion this week reflects on this interesting proposition that ethical responses are controlled by the brain and how we change our ethical responses based on our wiring. First, do you believe in such science? Do you believe that our brains are constructed that control our ethical responses? Why or why not? Do we have a moral responsibility to “fix” those who are morally corrupt?
Your paper must be three to five pages in content, double spaced 12 point font. Be specific in your examples and clearly refer to the week’s topic. Use appropriate APA format for citations and references.
