Abstract

Introduction Whereas the past few years have repeatedly been entitled as the "era of biotechnology", most recently one has to get the impression that at least the same degree of intention is being paid to the latest developments in the field of neuro-sciences. It is by now nearly impossible to oversee the number of research projects dealing with the functionality of the brain ­ for instance concerning the organizational structure of the brain ­ or projects dealing with the topic of mind reading. Massive efforts have also been taken in the field of prediction; for instance it is possible to analyze certain structure and by this see the proband's decision before he has aver told his decision. The above-mentioned procedures are connected to a number of legal questions. These questions concern the frame conditions of the projects as well as the right approach towards the generated findings. This paper is not only to show the various facets of legal implications, but is also to generate ­ as far as possible ­ possible practical solutions. Thus, the paper does not connect to certain parts of legal fields, but tries to show the most relevant fields of application, which have
