Where’s a researcher to go if they are interested in neuroethics, neurolaw and moral cognition? Follow the publications, of course.
I’ve assembled a quick list, in no particular order. So far, it has heavy emphasis on the places where empirical research is being conducted.
In the USA:
- Neuroethics Group, Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics (cleverly squatting on Neurodating.com and Neuroprofiling.com)
- University of Pennsylvania: Neuroethics at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience
- Cognitive Evolution Laboratory and the Cognition, Brain, and Behavior group with the Department of Psychology at Harvard
- Social Psychology with the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia
- Neuroscience Program at the University of Iowa
- Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California
- Neuroethics Research Unit at the Insitut de recherches cliniques de Montréal
- Neuroethics at Dalhousie University, where Neuroethics Net makes its home.
Note: In Canada, neuroethics is principally concerned with legal and bioethical evaluations of neurotechnology. To my knowledge, these centers are not conducting research on the neurobiology of moral decision-making.
This list isn’t comprehensive, so make known in the comments any neuroethics or neurolaw programs.
