Ethics and the Brain Conference

May 20, 2016 @ 8:00 am - May 21, 2016 @ 5:00 pm


The Decade of the Brain has ended. What did learn about ourselves? What are we continuing to learn about ourselves, our moral worth, our status as ethical persons and moral agents, as neuroscience research advances? What relevance, if any, does neuroscience have to significant moral and ethical questions to which humans have been seeking answers for thousands of years? The theme should be interpreted broadly.
