Leerdoelen The aim of this course is for students to:

- understand the rise, scope, and definition of neuroethics

Omschrijving Neuroethics is a research area concerned with the ethical implications of our increasing understanding of the brain and cognition. In this course we will first address the history, scope and definition of this relatively new approach. After that we zoom in on a number of specific neuroethical debates. Among these are: the neurological basis of moral decision-making, the impact of neuroscientific knowledge on criminal law, the ethics of cognitive enhancement, the ethics of neuromarketing, the impact of technology on moral cognition, and neurodiversity.
