Topographic-Specific Axon Branching Controlled by Ephrin-As Is the Critical Event in Retinotectal Map Development
It is shown that topographically appropriate connections are established exclusively by branches that form along the axon shaft, and that topographic branch formation and arborization along RGC axons are critical events in retinotectal mapping. Expand
Neuroscientific challenges to free will and responsibility

  • 1 September 2006
Three reasons are provided to think that neuroethical concerns about challenges to the authors' conception of freedom are misguided. Expand
Neuroethics for the New Millenium
Neuroethics has the potential to be an interdisciplinary field with wide-ranging effects, however, because it ultimately impinges on the well-being of the individual and the authors' society, it is not a study that can or should be undertaken in the ivory tower. Expand
Are ethical judgments intrinsically motivational? Lessons from "acquired sociopathy" [1]
Metaethical questions are typically held to be a priori , and therefore impervious to empirical evidence. Here I examine the metaethical claim that motive-internalism about belief (orExpand

The following pieces provide a comprehensive review of the status of the binding problem at the dawn of the new millenium. Expand
Neuroimages as Evidence in a Mens Rea Defense: No Impact
Recent developments in the neuropsychology of criminal behavior have given rise to concerns that neuroimaging evidence (such as MRI and functional MRI [fMRI] images) could unduly influence jurors.Expand
Neuroimaging and Inferential Distance
Brain images are used both as scientific evidence and to illustrate the results of neuroimaging experiments. These images are apt to be viewed as photographs of brain activity, and in so viewing themExpand
Are Neuroimages Like Photographs of the Brain?
  • A. Roskies
  • Psychology
  • Philosophy of Science
  • 1 December 2007
Images come in many varieties, but for evidential purposes, photographs are privileged. Recent advances in neuroimaging provide us with a new type of image that is used as scientific evidence. BrainExpand
Barking up the wrong free: readiness potentials reflect processes independent of conscious will
The results suggest that the RP and LRP reflect processes independent of will and consciousness, which has significant implications for the understanding of the neural basis of motor action and potentially for arguments about free will and the causal role of consciousness. Expand
How does neuroscience affect our conception of volition?
  • A. Roskies
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Annual review of neuroscience
  • 23 June 2010
These neuroscientific results provide some insight into the neural circuits mediating behaviors that are related to will and volition, and raise new questions about what is necessary for free will. Expand
