The NIH BRAIN Initiative recently organized a neuroethics-focused session on engagement between neuroethicists, neuroscientists, and the public and scientific communities, as part of the virtual 7th Annual BRAIN Initiative Investigators Meeting.

As neuroscience and neurotechnologies advance, neuroethics engagement strives to facilitate communication between neuroethicists, neuroscientists, and the public and scientific communities to share knowledge and raise awareness about neuroethical considerations in research.

To learn more about how these conversations happen and improve neuroethics engagement efforts, a neuroethics-focused session was held at the (virtual) 7th Annual BRAIN Initiative Investigators Meeting on June 14th, 2021. The session’s goal was to hold a meaningful discussion on promoting neuroethics engagement in neuroscience from interdisciplinary perspectives and to discuss what has worked well in facilitating cross-disciplinary discussions and forging relationships that include neuroethics.
