We hope the resources on this page will be useful to people teaching courses on Neuroscience and Society, Neuroethics and related subjects.

You can find video-taped lectures on a variety of topics within neuroethics on our Video Library. They may be helpful in preparing your lectures, and you can also assign them to students.

Here is a collection of tips on teaching neuroethics, prepared for the 2010 Neuroethics Society Meeting: Resources for Teaching Neuroethics


We maintain a neuroethics syllabus repository, to help instructors design or refresh their courses. You can search by level here. If you have taught a course in this area we’d appreciate having a copy of your syllabus to post or a link to your course website.  Please send it to us.
