So what can you do to show your support? Here are a few very practical suggestions:.

Despite the fact that the number shown on the wheel was generated entirely at random, it still had the effect of anchoring estimates. His material and presentation-the title is a good index-suggest that his intended readers are not neuroscience researchers but political theorists and other similar-minded academics, people predictably unfamiliar with the general ideas of cognitive science.
As a result, it might be justified to provide more background to the field within his text rather than referring the reader to external sources; the latter strategy risks questions as to the validity of the new brain science.
Understanding Social Consent
The sheer variety of forms of coercion in addition to its more active nature should make it the conceptual center of the study; the process of consent remains fairly unified and frankly rather boring.
