I’m writing to share with you information about the upcoming 2012 Annual Meeting of the International Neuroethics Society on October 11 and 12 (the day before the SfN Meeting) at the New Orleans Marriott, 555 Canal Street.

Nita Farahany, Professor at Duke Law School and a member of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, will give the keynote. Other topics include addiction and neuroethics, altering personhood, and animats and hybots. One conversation is on the “Future of Neuroethics” with panelists drawn from different places and generations: Martha Farah at the University of Pennsylvania, Eric Racine from McGill, Karen Rommelfanger at Emory, Verity Brown from The University of St. Andrews, and moderated by Steve Hyman from the Broad Institute.
