It is also questionable whether the first-person phenomenological feel of subjective experience can be entirely captured by third-person descriptions of brain function. The human mind expresses itself through a chain of molecular events and processes. But the mind is more than just a function of molecules.”

stop and consider the ethical implications of this new found knowledge
Will having a new biology of the brain through imaging make us less responsible for our behavior and lose our free will? Should certain brain scan studies be disallowed on the basis of moral grounds? Why is the media so interested in reporting results of brain imaging studies? What ethical lessons from the past can best inform the future of brain imaging?
and many more are tackled by a distinguished group of contributors to this,
the first-ever volume on neuroethics
. The wide range of disciplinary backgrounds that the authors represent, from neuroscience, bioethics and philosophy, to law, social and health care policy, education, religion and film, allow for profoundly insightful and provocative answers to these questions, and open up the door to a host of new ones. The contributions highlight the timeliness of modern neuroethics today, and assure the longevity and importance of neuroethics for generations to come.
The past two decades have seen unparalleled developments in our knowledge of the
. However, these advances have forced us to confront head-on some significant
ethical issues regarding our application of this information in the real world
—whether using brain images to establish guilt within a court of law, or developing drugs to enhance cognition. Historically, any consideration of the ethical, legal, and social implications of emerging technologies in science and medicine has lagged behind the discovery of the technology itself. These delays have caused problems in the acceptability and potential applications of biomedical advances and posed significant problems for the scientific community and the public alike—for example in the case of genetic screening and human cloning. The

field of study
that addresses the moral issues that arise in and from neuroscientific research and the clinical practices
social effects/implications that evolve from these investigations
between neurological research/clinical practices and other ethically relevant areas of biomedical sciences (e.g. the effects/implications of genetic research on neurological care; use of nanotechnology in neurological research and practice, etc.)
Contemporary neuroethics necessitates consideration and appreciation of an
underlying natural philosophy
, that grounds neuroscience (and its constituent disciplines) and the humanities. Toward this, a number of operational definitions are introductory to an explanation of neuroethics...
: 1: the inherent character or basic constitution of a person or thing 2: a controlling force in the universe or the sum of such forces in an individual 3: a kind or class usually distinguished by fundamental or essential characteristics
: 1: a discipline comprising as its tasks: metaphysics, logic, epistemology, ethics, engaged in study or pursuit of field/practice 2: a search for a general understanding by chiefly speculative rather than observational means
: an area of knowledge that is an object of study, particularly as concerning general laws; usually as obtained through specific rational methods
: a system of beliefs, attitudes and practices reflective of a metaphysical appreciation engaged in moral decision making; a ‘binding’ set of beliefs and faith in such beliefs
: pertaining to or derived from the structure, function (or concept) of nerves, and/or nervous systems, such as brains.
From this, we can consider
viable definitions of "
1) Inquiry and investigation into the
of moral thought, intention and behavior
2) Inquiry and investigation into the moral, ethical and policy-related issues arising in, and from neuroscientific research and its clinical applications
Both of these definitions involve
a solid foundation of the facts of neural function
, the realities of science, medical practice, and social impact, and from this
(a.) recognize the exigencies and issues that are inherent and arise, (b.) the moral obligations and responsibilities involved with these issues, and (c.) how various ethical systems may be utilized to address and resolve these issues, questions and problems. This allows us to construct a normative and applied neuroethics "...from the ground up", as schematically illustrated below.
