Expressing Wonder, Making Meaning: Neuroethics Engages the Arts

The arts and the humanities are creative pursuits that engage culture, undergird meaning-making, and express human flourishing. Music, the visual arts, and the humanities offer the field of neuroethics powerful vehicles for communication and fruitful grounds for novel inquiry.

This meeting explores creative, technological, practical, and social elements of the brain and the arts. By illuminating how human creativity and expression intersect with brain science and ethical considerations, this meeting aims to deepen our understanding of the ways in which the arts and humanities can contribute to the advancement of neuroethics.
