It wasn’t me: To what extent do we have CONTROL over our behavior?

Read the incredible article, The Brain on Trial by neuroscientist David Eagelman director of the Baylor Laboratory of Behavior and Perception  on the incredibly
profound effects brain chemistry has on our behavior.

The article brings up a number of questions including:

1.  Do we have free will?

2.  What is a viable “insanity” defense

3.  Does the article change your opinion on how we punish criminality in our society?
