The Winter School "Ethics and Neuroscience is organized by the BCCN Berlin/ICCN and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The event is tailored for MSc students and PhD candidates, but covers a range of topics of potential interest to other researchers, reflecting on the ethical and societal consequences of modern neuroscience.

Theoretical foundations, as well as practical and ethical aspects are addressed. Participants will benefit from a combination of lectures with group work and discussions, where they will put the learned content into practice.

Registration will open in January 2020.

Scientific organisers: John-Dylan Haynes and Thomas Schmidt.

Keynote lecture: "Reality Check" by Prof. Dr. Oliver Brock (Excellence Cluster Science of Intelligence,Technische Universität Berlin)

On Tuesday, 18 Feb, the winter school offers two parallel tracks: The Philosophical Track focuses on theoretical aspects, metaethics and moral responsibility. The Empirical Track offers theoretical foundations as well as a number of practical ethical aspects in neuroscience, such as deep brain stimulation, brain death, artificial intelligence, and data protection.
