Abstract

Societal perceptions of the diagnosis and treatment of cognitive impairment after severe brain injury have been influenced by the legacies of the right-to-die movement and psychosurgery. Here I propose an ethical stereotaxy for severe brain injury that balances risks, benefits and access to this neglected population, in light of advances in cognitive neuroscience.
