Information on actions UN & US:


1. Note that: "The Eighth Review Conference of the Biological Weapons Convention will be held in the Palais des Nations from 7 to 25 November 2016". US Dept of State site


"(UN) member states should establish a clearer view of today’s neuroscience and neurotechnology, a better understanding of present and future capabilities, and a realistic picture of emerging threats."


2. In America, federally funded medical research with potential military applications can be regulated by Dual-Use Research of Concern policies at the National Institutes of Health, which reflect the general tenor of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention and the Chemical Weapons Convention


3. I would also argue that the United States and its allies should take the proper security precautions in the form of increased surveillance of neuroscience R&D around the world.
