Preventing a Biochemical Arms Race

This chapter discusses advances in neuroscience that have particular implications for biosecurity. The connection between genomics and neuroscience is also elaborated upon. The thinking of Eric Kandel is then considered because his views are important as senior editor of the classic volume Principles of Neural Science. Magnetic resonance imaging is one of a series of important developments in neuroimaging techniques. A much better image could be produced of the structure of the brain using this type of imaging. The data confirms that neuroscience is experiencing major progress, an advancement that is widely acknowledged in the medical and life sciences community. In his Nobel Prize Lecture, Kandel elaborated that his original interest was in the mammalian hippocampus. The changing nature of warfare and the revolution in the life sciences affected the perceived utility of chemical and biological weapons (CBW) and the future of the CBW prohibition regimes.

Keywords:   neuroscience, biosecurity, genomics, Eric Kandel, Principles of Neural Science, magnetic resonance imaging, brain, chemical and biological weapons, warfare
