Neuroethics

Neuroethics is a subdivision of bioethics that specifically addresses emerging ethical issues surrounding developments in neuroscience and neurotechnology, as well as reflections in the philosophy of mind. Ethical issues specific to neuroethics include among others neuroimaging, brain implants and brain-computer interfaces, cognitive and moral enhancement, and memory alteration. The role cognition plays in our understanding of human personhood is also explored within the realm of neuroethics.
