The Global Neuroethics Summit is the annual product of the Neuroethics Workgroup (WG) of the International Brain Initiative (IBI). The Summit pursues varying strategies for addressing the societal and ethical implications of emerging neuroscience and neurotechnologies. As neuroscience is now a global endeavor, neuroethics must be equally prepared to address global value.
What keeps you up at night when you think about the brain?
The International Brain Initiative (IBI) is a consortium of 7 large-scale brain research projects around the globe. The global
neuroethics workgroup of the IBI wants to know what the distinguished community of the IBRO thinks are important neuroethical
topics to address. They also are exploring how to engage with scientists and the general public on neuroethical issues.
