The Ethics of Neuroscience in Sport

On September 17th, the Core’s Dr. Judy Illes gave a lecture at the University of British Columbia’s Robson Square on some of the ethical issues pertaining to the use of imaging technologies to enhance individual performance in sport. Kevin Sauve, Masters of Journalism Student with the Core summarized the lecture in a recent edition of the Ubyssey, the University of British Columbia’s student newspaper.

Anders Sandberg, perhaps best known for his views on transhumanism,¬† asked the question on the Practical Ethics blog whether or not “enhanced training methods” pose a new problem for sport. Check out his post, called “Supercoach and the MRI machine“.
