The IEEE brain initiative seeks to set standards for, and explore the ethics of many technologies related to the brain and brain-machine interfaces. Laura Cabrera’s interests focus on the ethical and societal implications of neurotechnology and neuroscientific advances. She has been working on projects that explore the media coverage and the attitudes of the general public toward pharmacological and neuromodulation interventions for the treatment of psychiatric disorders. She has also worked on the public perceptions toward the use of different modalities of neuromodifiers for enhancement purposes, as well as their normative implications. In this episode of Seeking Delphi™ Mark Sackler talks to Laura about many issues surrounding the accelerating use of technology to diagnose, treat, and eventually enhance, the brain.
