Part of NIH’s support for the BRAIN initiative has been devoted to working on the ethical, legal and social implications of neuroscience. For the coming year, they have announced RFA-MH-18-500, aimed at supporting research on the ethics of brain science and neurotechnology, which will be “both complementary and integrative with the transformative, breakthrough neuroscience discoveries supported through the BRAIN Initiative.” For more, see https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-MH-18-500.html
