In June, the Penn Center for Neuroscience and Society (CNS) and the Penn Center for Interaction of Animals and Society (CIAS) are hosting a two day workshop examining the unique ethical issues that arise in neuroscience research on nonhuman animals. Topics to be discussed include animal models for pain and psychiatric disorders, the neuroscience of personhood, animal-animal chimeras, animal brain-machine interfaces, and in vitro brains. The event is sponsored by the Alternatives Research Development Foundation, UPenn Arts and Sciences, and the Penn CNS. For more information, email CNS Visiting Fellow Adam Shriver at ashriver [at] mail.med.upenn.edu.
