The BRAIN Initiative encourages attention to ethical issues in neuroscientific and neurotechnology research through its funding mechanisms. But what does successful integration of ethics work look like in the context of such research? This talk addresses some of the methodologies of integration, the valuable content that can arise from such integration efforts, and considerations for how to measure the success of ethics integration.

Sara Goering is Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Washington, Seattle, where she also works in the Program on Ethics and the Disability Studies Program. For over ten years, she co-led the ethics research group at UW’s Center for Neurotechnology.
