A Lawyer, a Philosopher, and Two Neurologists Walk Into a Bar…
In this episode we discuss ethical considerations around brain-computer interfaces. Our guests are Tim Brown, Leigh Hochberg, Sydney Cash, and Amanda Pustilnik. A central theme in the discussions will be how neuroethics differs from traditional medical ethics and bioethics, and what we can draw from other fields and experiences to prepare for a world where BCI is more prevalent and more powerful.
