Winter School "Ethics and Neuroscience" 2019
The 8th Winter School "Ethics and Neuroscience is taking place on February 18 - 22, 2019. It is organized by the BCCN Berlin/ICCN and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain. The event is tailored for MSc and PhD students, but covers a range of topics of potential interest to other researchers, reflecting on the ethical and societal consequences of modern neuroscience.
Theoretical foundations, as well as practical and ethical aspects are addressed. Participants will benefit from a combination of lectures with group work and discussions, where they will put the learned content into practice.
Registration is now closed.
Scientific organisers: John-Dylan Haynes and Thomas Schmidt.
Keynote lecture: "Power and social intelligence" by Michael Pauen (HU-Berlin).
The school offers two parallel tracks: The Philosophical Track focuses on theoretical aspects, metaethics and moral responsibility. The Empirical Track offers theoretical foundations as well as a number of practical ethical aspects in neuroscience, such as animal research, clinical practice, deep brain stimulation, neuro-enhancement, brain reading, neuro-law, good scientific practice, and ethics committees.
