Cold War Nonconsensual Experiments: The Threat of Neuroweapons and the Danger it will happen again

CHERYL WELSH, J.D.*


During the Cold War, the U.S. government experimented on American citizens without their permission. Although nonconsensual experiments are prohibited under the U. S. Constitution, U.S. law allows for waivers and exemptions of informed consent in U.S. government research.

This paper examines how and why all major reforms efforts to ban nonconsensual experiments have failed. It examines emerging evidence of secret neuroweapons; neuroscience-based weapons that may be comparable to the atomic bomb and the significant danger of further nonconsensual experiments being carried out today. The paper also reviews the current debate on the persistent allegations that on-going nonconsensual government experiments are happening again and gives recommendations for future reform efforts.The 1995 Advisory Committee for Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE) Final Report called for regulations to halt such human subject experimentation without informed consent.2 Top U.S. government officials - including Hazel O'Leary, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy - stated that such experiments should never happen again.3 Yet today, some officials still have the power to waive regulations requiring informed consent in classified government experiments.4 This paper examines how and why U.S. reform efforts to ban nonconsensual experiments in classified experiments continue to fail despite the strong ethical and constitutional basis for a consent requirement.

This paper also examines the emerging development of new secret weapons, called neuroweapons, and the need for research involving human subjects. Neuroweapons, which are based on neuroscience,5 are 'weapons of selective deception and manipulation'.6 They 'affect the brain and nervous system and provide some advantage in a conflict.'7 Neuroweapons research includes 'mind-machine interfaces ("neural prosthetics") that will enable pilots and soldiers to control high-tech weapons by thought alone'.8 Several experts have argued that such weapons could have far-reaching and transformative implications similar to the societal impact of the atomic bomb; therefore nonconsensual experiments for national security research will continue to be a significant contemporary problem.9 This paper focuses on U.S. neuroweapons research because the U.S. is conducting more neuroscience research than any other major country and U.S. experts believe it is time for public discourse on the emerging development of neuroweapons.10 Neuroweapons and the older term, mind control weapons, (which were being explored in the CIA's Cold War mind control programs) are used interchangeably in this paper.
