Welcome to neuroethics.ca.

On this website, you will find information on the field of neuroethics—an exciting new field at the intersection of neuroscience and ethics—and on the activities of the Neuroethics New Emerging Team funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

Neuroscience is the study of the brain and nervous system, encompassing many aspects, from molecular and cellular biology, to psychology and behaviour. Neuroethics deals with the ethical matters raised by advances in functional neuroimaging, brain implants and psychopharmacology as well as emerging issues relating to behaviour, personality, and consciousness.

We invite you to enter this site to learn more about neuroethics and our Neuroethics NET, including its objectives, the specific projects, and results.
