Neuroethics for British Columbia

Neuroethics is a relatively new field of study that focuses on the ethical, legal, social and policy implications emerging from different branches of clinical neuroscience (neurology, psychiatry, psychopharmacology) and basic neuroscience (cognitive neuroscience). This award supports the creation of a team focused on working with practicing neuroscientists, physicians and clinical researchers, ethicists, and health policy-makers in BC to ensure that advances in neuroscience are aligned with societal and individual human values. The team will work towards identifying educational, research and clinical needs in neuroethics in BC, and encouraging collaboration between additional teams involved in complementary research activities.
