But the poor also exist. Express Gazzaniga. Responsibility is a rule, a standard and exists in a social group. Responsibility is not in the brain, but that is part of social norms, is in the culture. If a person lived alone, he should not be responsible for, but yes it has to be if lives in society. We need a social accord with interaction and everyone can follow the rules. Within this fascinating scientific field there is a debate over when human beings have a functional brain. Postures differ in aggressive ways because ethical as abortion or euthanasia issues come large in question.

When is the brain born?, when brain death does? For scientists, at 26 weeks of gestation, the brain is already beginning to be developed and may feel psychological pain. The only thing we can say with certainty is that there is no brain to 14 days in the embryo, and this is an important fact, because scientists that they investigate with cells mother in regenerative medicine using embryonic cells of less than 14 days. That could throw light and limits to this debate. Brain death is supported when there is no activity in the brain and brain death is accepted to be able to extract the organs of a human body. Similarly is they could use or donate medicine to organisms that do not have a brain? In this issue, some appeal to the potentiality, i.e., to that that embryo could have a brain.

It is not easy to reach agreements. Brain death begins in the cortex, quickly affects the entire brain and ends up being a death of the whole body. Neuroscientists are who determine the time in which the brain no longer works and is an irreversible, final State. In a vegetative state, however, neurologists do not know if this process is irreversible, because there have been cases of sick people who awaken from that State. The debate is that some refuse to declare death while follow the heart beating and intend to review the concept of death brain. For the Californian Professor would be a mistake to try to distinguish between death and brain death, because everything that concerns us human death is related to the brain.
