Welcome to the Neuroethics Learning Collaborative! The two goals of this are: (1) to familiarize you with the mechanics of the course, which are a combination of familiar methods such as readings and lectures, and new methods such as cross-institutional panel discussions and online discussions, and (2) to introduce you to the scope of neuroethics -- the wide range of ethical, legal and societal issues raised by recent progress in neuroscience.
Martha J. Farah, Ph.D. Dr. Farah is the Walter H. Annenberg Professor of Natural Sciences at Penn. She is interested in a variety of social, legal and ethical issues in neuroscience, including practical issues arising from brain enhancement and brain imaging, and philosophical issues related to personhood and the mind-body problem.
