Brain Mapping

Mapping the brain’s reactions to internal and external stimuli is scary! This technology should be further developed but the ethical implications are huge. Once the process of mapping the brain is perfected the technology will have to be guarded very well. If this got into the wrong hands brain mapping could be used for many sinister reasons. As America may, one day, be able to use this for interrogation techniques so will other countries. Worse than other countries getting there hands on this is just some crazy radical group obtaining the technology. I think brain mapping is amazing but I’m just not convinced that the ethical implications have been thought through. What do you guys think?
