"Advancements in neurotechnology have had a significant impact on the neurosciences in the past decade given unprecedented convenience, safety, and relevance to a broad range of neurobehavioral phenomena. There is a growing regard for the novelty and breadth of purposes for neuroimaging and, over time, functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging ("fMRI") use has expanded from the research laboratory to the clinical realm and even social terrain.
With the advent of this powerful new neurotechnological capability, it is foreseeable that functional images of the brain could be used to facilitate courtships by assessing personal compatibility. As a research team devoted to ethics in advanced neuroimaging, we are considering what this future may bring: How might brain imaging for dating -- "neurodating" -- be provided? Will brain images really provide useful information in the pursuit of a prospective mate? And who will protect the privacy and rights of the consumers seeking love or, at the least, an ideal scan-mate?"
Is neurodating for real? Well, no, but some day it could be and that's the point Dr. Judy Illes, Director of Stanford's Center for Neuroethics is trying to make by publishing this website. I highly recommend checking out her research on cutting edge issues in neuroethics at her Stanford site.
