Welcome to the official blog of the National Core for Neuroethics at the University of British Columbia. We aim to use this blog as a means for the general public in partnership with academics, scientists, researchers, educators, clinicians and healthcare providers to contribute to the growing discussion in the rapidly developing and exciting field of neuroethics. Authors will post links to academic articles, newspaper articles, diverse media sources, general thoughts, musings, and events related to neuroethics.  We welcome your thoughts, comments, and remarks. All postings on this site will be moderated by an administrator.

About National Core for Neuroethics

With the remarkable pace of advances in the neurosciences, ethical, legal, policy and social issues are garnering significant attention in both the academic community and the eyes of the general public. Historically, consideration of the social implications of such frontier technology lagged the development of the technology itself. Our vision for the field of neuroethics, and for the new National Core for Neuroethics at the University of British Columbia (UBC), is to tackle these challenges head-on, working hand-in-hand with practicing neuroscientists to ensure the close alignment of innovation with societal and individual human values.
