HS 109 - Neuroscience and Society


As the field of neuroscience increases our understanding of how the brain generates and controls behaviors and ideas, questions are raised that confront societal definitions of mind and body, free will, personal responsibility, and more. This course aims to unravel the ethical implications of the intersection of neuroscience and society. These ideas will be examined through peer-reviewed readings, personal reflections, class discussions, debates and formal writing. Topics and exercises are designed to help students understand different points of view than their own and to gain an understanding of what it is like to have altered mentation, i.e. a brain disease or disability.

Credits: 3 cr
