The Ethics of Neuroenhancement

Two resources that discuss contemporary issues around cognitive neuroenchancement (the use of drugs to enhance rather than heal human behavior). Martha Farah, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of Natural Sciences, with the University of Pennsylvania Center for Neuroscience and Society, offers a website briefing that reviews several issues in either enhancing memory or reducing negative experiences. In addition, attendees may want to view an interesting webcast sponsored by the Dana organization 2007 podcast titled “How Smart Are We About Smart Drugs?”
