Neuroethics is a burgeoning field that explores the implications of new developments in basic and clinical neuroscience on social and ethical issues. In particular, advances in functional neuroimaging, psychopharmacology, brain implants and brain-machine interfaces raise important social, legal, ethical and policy questions. The program explores emerging ethical questions raised by recent neuroscientific discoveries on genetic and environmental factors that influence human behavior, decision-making, personality traits, and mental states.
