IFSN-Meeting 2010: 'Cognitive Enhancement - Ethics and Society'
The 2010 Meeting of the Research Focus on Interdisciplinary Neurosciences will be held on 'Cognitive Enhancement – Ethics and Society'.
Since 2008 scientists from Mainz University in collaboration with colleagues from Vancouver, Canada, are analyzing the ethical, sociocultural and neuropsychiatric aspects of Cognitive Enhancement, thus the use of new pharmaceuticals by healthy subjects in an attempt to improve certain aspects of one's cognitive abilities such as memory, concentration, attention, and alertness.
Besides presentation of project results there will be guest talks of Bettina Schöne-Seifert, Münster University, and Hans-Holger Bleß from the IGES Institute, Berlin, at the conference. We welcome anyone interested in the topic. See the program
