Dana Press Blog Features Brain Awareness Week Neuroethics Roundup

The Dana Press Blog recently featured an entry by the Core’s Dr. Judy Illes on the recent Brain Awareness Week Neuroethics Lecture by Dr. Bruce Wexler at the University of British Columbia.

Dr. Wexler discussed the interface among neuroplasticity, the impact of the environment on neurodevelopment, and the interaction between internal schema (how we see the world) and external stimuli through the aging process.
