The development of predictive biomarkers in neuroscience is increasingly enabling bioprediction of adverse behavioural events, from psychosis to impulsive violent reaction. Because many brain-based disorders can be thought of as end-states of a long development, bioprediction carries immense therapeutic potential.
In this thesis, I analyse issues raised by the development of bioprediction of brain-based disorder. I argue that ethical an ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]
