Symposium on Neuroethics: Interrogating Identities

This symposium is supported by a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation towards creating a more open NeuroCulture on campus and in the community. We want to address the important questions regarding ethics involved in Neuroscience practice and research. We want students, faculty and community members to hear about the discussions, debates and dialogs that are a part of neuroscience and make it more accessible for all.

Neuroethics is an emerging field as we are faced with many questions regarding brain research, what information is proprietary, what are the dilemmas facing researchers, practitioners and patients. With this symposium, we are Interrogating Identities and hope to engage in a conversation about the ethical issues regarding  diverse topics such as mental health, spinal cord injury rehabilitation, brain-brain interfaces and brain research on gender/socioeconomics. Panels will be short talks/discussions followed by dialog and Q&A. 

Event is sponsored by the Initiative for NeuroCulture, the Civic Scholarship Initiative, the Neuroscience Program, the Bioethics Program, Art + Science Salons and the University of Puget Sound.
