Neuroethics Specialty Group

Chair: James L. Bernat




The Neuroethics Specialty Group fosters ethical behaviours in the clinical practice of neurology and in the conduct of neuroscience research, and works to resolve ethical dilemmas that arise in both domains.

It has proposed a teaching course for the World Congress of Neurology meeting in Rome in 2021. It encourages neurology trainee and practitioner education in neuroethics and works with ethics committees of national neurological societies to help achieve consensus on unresolved neuroethics issues.
