What is Neuroethics?

What is Neuroethics?

Neuroethics is a vibrant and rapidly growing field that explores how neuroscience and neurotechnologies inform our value systems. The field of neuroethics explores the thorny questions that arise as new neuroscience innovations continually challenge notions of the self, free will, autonomy, the nature of disease, the mind, and what it means to be human. As the horizon on what is knowable about the life of the brain continues to expand, so does its worldwide impact on healthcare, legal systems, national security, and consumer culture. Neuroethics is not only the result of rapidly evolving brain sciences; it is the next innovation in the brain sciences.
