There is an underdeveloped potential for using neuroscience as a particular input in the process of law-making. This chapter examines one such instance in the area of public health law. Neuroscience could play an important role in elucidating and strengthening the relevance of the conditions underlying and re-enforcing our ability to cooperate in balancing the benefits and burdens necessary to achieve particular goods; for instance, the protection of public health in an outbreak of pandemic influenza. In particular, the chapter focuses on how a better understanding of the neurobiological basis of reciprocity could be used to help increase support and compliance with public health laws — especially those involving restrictive measures (such as quarantine and isolation).

Keywords:   neuroscience, law-making, public health law, pandemic influenza, restrictive measures
