A graduate course in neuroethics, intended for neuroscience graduate
students, being developed and offered with support from the NSF. It includes a
combination of traditional classroom lectures, discussion and debates, as well as an
online component coordinated with a course at Wisconsin's Neuroscience and Public
Policy graduate program.

In brief, this is the rationale: Neuroscience is increasingly affecting all aspects of human life, from the relatively familiar medical applications in neurology and psychiatry, to new applications in education, business, law and the military. Today's neuroscience graduate students will be among the scientists, citizens and policymakers who will lead society through the maze of decisions regarding the appropriate uses of neuroscience.

This course provides a survey of the key ethical, legal and social issues at the
intersection of neuroscience and society.

Fascinating, thought-provoking, EXCELLENT!

Amazing. So thought-provoking and inspiring. Simple enough for a high schooler to understand, yet so complex that the moral ethics video made me question my personal beliefs. Very well done and a great series.
