Human Neuroscience

Neuroethics-Focused Session as part of the 7th Annual BRAIN Initiative Investigators Meeting

Perspectives on the complexities of improving neuroethics engagement among writers, neuroethicists, and scientists in academia and industry

Neuroethics – a growing field that studies the ethical, legal, and societal implications of neuroscience – is an essential partner to neuroscience. It can serve to anticipate and address ethical questions raised in and by research, and flourishes with active collaboration and integration with neuroscience. >

From BRAIN to Bedside: Translation of Next-Generation Circuit Therapies

June 29-30, 2021: The goal of this NIH BRAIN Initiative workshop is to bring together cross-disciplinary investigators to discuss the potential for human translation of next-generation circuit therapies for disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). The focus will be on the use of innovative and novel tools, which includes optogenetics, chemogenetics, and gene editing, as well as cutting-edge approaches to neuromodulation. Sessions will discuss existing approaches to circuit manipulation, advances in gene therapy approaches, and how they may inform future CNS circuit therapies.
