Neuroethics is a young and multidisciplinary field of inquiry. It has developed at a time that neuroscience is making significant discoveries and developments at a rapid pace. New drugs and treatments for mental and neurological disorders appear on the horizon every day. As new types of interventions are being translated from bench to bedside, the public's awareness of ethical issues surrounding neuroscientific developments has been growing. Neuroscience brings hypes and hopes, and neuroethics reflects on these. Neuroethics asks questions about: What can and should be done with the developments in neuroscience? Is neuroscience moving too fast? Topics for inquiry include addiction, deep brain stimulation, free will, enhancement and consciousness.
