LOPEZ-SILVA, Pablo  and  MADRID, Raúl. On the convenience of including neurorights in the Constitution or in the law. Rev. chil. derecho tecnol. [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.1, pp.53-76. ISSN 0719-2584.

Current advances in neurotechnology promise to revolutionize a number of medical treatments. However, for some, these advances would increase social inequalities and would offer corporations, hackers, and governments the opportunity to exploit and manipulate human mind at will. For this reason, it has been suggested over the last years that any type of neurotechnology should be accompanied by a normative support aiming at protecting privacy, identity, agency, and equity of human beings. This legal support has been recently named as neurorights. In this article, we focus on we question about whether it is necessary to legislate about neurorights in this moment of the development of current research in biotechnology. The article does not consist of an analysis of the bill currently under development, but rather a reflection on the very idea of legislating in this area.

Keywords : Neurotechnology; neurorights; privacy; agency; neuroprotection.
