The BNA partners with the International Neuroethics Society (INS)

11th Jul 2017

The BNA is proud to announce its new partnership with the International Neuroethics Society (INS), giving individuals the opportunity to receive a 10% discount on membership fees when signing up for both societies. 

The BNA Trustees recognise how important it is for neuroscientists to consider the ethical implications of their work and for members of the public to have the chance for informed debate.  

By partnering with the INS in this way, BNA members will have greater opportunities to interact with neuroethicists and vice versa, to the benefit of all. 

About INS

Neuroethics studies the social, legal, ethical and policy implications of advances in neuroscience. With the unprecedented progress in the basic sciences of mind and brain and in the treatment of psychiatric and neurologic disorders, comes an expanding role of neuroscience into classrooms, courtrooms, offices and homes around the world. The mission of the International Neuroethics Society is to encourage and inspire research and dialogue on the responsible use of advances in brain science. To accomplish their mission they:

• Exchange knowledge among scientists, ethicists, medical professionals, lawyers and judges, educators, policy makers and other stakeholders

• Forge connections and collaborations across scientific disciplines, business sectors, government agencies and non-government institutions

• Enable education, training and mentoring opportunities to strengthen neuroethics

• Engage in public forums and discussions with citizens, journalists and experts
