Neuro-ergonomy as the next human right issue

Wonderful explanation of the need to think of neuro-sciences as an essential activism area. The idea of developing “neuro-wisdom” instead of being manipulated. IDriss Aberkane believes we are in a renaissance that can lead to a “neuro-naissance” or “neuro-fascism”…. Thus the importance of developing ‘neuro-rights”…. Interesting concepts….. I hope the book gets translated to english.
