2015 INS Annual Meeting
October 15-16
Chicago, IL, USA

The preliminary program is now available!

International Neuroethics Society

Neuroethics studies the social, legal, ethical and policy implications of advances in neuroscience. With the unprecedented progress in the basic sciences of mind and brain and in the treatment of psychiatric and neurologic disorders, comes an expanding role of neuroscience into classrooms, courtrooms, offices and homes around the world.  A principle objective of the INS is to help the public understand the issues raised by this research and the powerful new tools being developed. Some examples are:

  • brain privacy and the use of sophisticated imaging
  • cognitive enhancement and potential avenues for pharmacological manipulation
  • the use of brain imaging in the criminal justice system
  • neurotechnology safety - including interventions and devices
  • the neurobiology of decision-making and applications - in areas such as marketing, and others
