Neuroethics examines the
ethical issues that arise from developments in brain sciences, that is, from
the advancement in our understanding of the human brain and our ability to
monitor and influence it, and from our improved understanding of the biological
basis of agency. Neuroethics also deals with the implications of applying
neurotechnologies, such as neuroimaging and psychotropic drugs, for ethical
decision-making and human self-perception and self-understanding.
