We have to conclude that neuro-scientific research takes away too much real-life organizational context in order for it to become a dominant tool for organizations. Ethical considerations (like viewing employees as resources that can be “fixed” or manipulated by science) are problematic for the workplace, and can eventually cause resentment or violations of privacy.
