Brain Ethics has picked up on the launch of the Neuroethics Society – a professional organisation for those interested in the ethics of neuroscience and neurological enhancement.
It is being kicked off by neuropsychologist Professor Martha Farah who is one of the pioneers in the field and wrote an influential article on neuroethics [pdf] that introduced the field to many in the mainstream of cognitive science.
The society is hoping to organise some upcoming conferences and focus some much needed attention in the increasingly pervasive influence of neurotechnology on society.
