Endorsement of Events and Activities
The mission of the International Neuroethics Society is to promote the development and responsible application of neuroscience through better understanding of its capabilities and its consequences. The Society is committed to broad development of the field of neuroethics. The Society will endorse Events and Activities by groups and individuals which will promote understanding of the advances in neurosciences and cognitive science generally relevant to their ethical, social and legal implications, or of those implications themselves. Requests for endorsement of Neuroethics Events and Activities should be forwarded to the Executive Committee who will endorse applications of sufficient relevance and quality on behalf of the Society.
