The THERENIA research project explores the ethics of using neuroscientific knowledge for treatment and enhancement. Questions of particular interest include…

  • Should our moral response to human neuroenhancement differ from our response to treatment?
  • How should individual autonomy be understood in light of current neuroscientific knowledge?
  • How does personal autonomy relate to other values, such as well-being, dignity, and justice?
  • How do we apply this knowledge in concrete decision-making in clinical practice and in the courtroom?
