Topic areas


On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Italian Meetings on Neuroethics organized in Padua since 2009, the Italian Society for Neuroethics aims, in its 5th conference, at providing an overview of the most relevant issues in the current debate on neuroethics and to show the extent of novelty and of continuity with the very first meeting on neuroethics, held in 2002 in San Francisco with the title “Neuroethics: Mapping the Field”.

Thus, we invite contributions on the following sections:

1. Cognitive enhancement.

2. Moral cognition.

3. Neurolaw.
