About this series
Advances in neuroscience research are bringing to the forefront major benefits and ethical challenges for medicine and society. The ethical concerns related to patients with mental health and neurological conditions, as well as emerging social and philosophical problems created by advances in neuroscience, neurology and neurotechnology are addressed by a specialized and interdisciplinary field called neuroethics.
As neuroscience rapidly evolves, there is a need to define how society ought to move forward with respect to an ever growing range of issues. The ethical, legal and social ramifications of neuroscience, neurotechnology and neurology for research, patient care, and public health are diverse and far-reaching — and are only beginning to be understood.
In this context, the book series “Advances in Neuroethics” addresses how advances in brain sciences can be attended to for the benefit of patients and society at large.
