Glass by Daryl Gregory

A chilling portrayal of psycho-pharmacological experimentation on prisoners, an attempt to alter the brain function of psychopaths so that they experience bad things that happen to others as if it were happening to themselves. Merely thinking about doing something bad is enough to trigger the effect, dramatically changing psychopathic behavior. Such a powerful tool is easily abused.

The story is very brief. It’s strong as far as it goes.

“Glass” by Daryl Gregory was first published in MIT Technology Review
