Cognitive Performance Enhancement for Healthy Individuals: Ethical and Health Policy Issues

Referent: Prof. Eric Racine | Moderation: Dr. Ralf Jox

06.07.2012 at 18:00 

The ethical debate on the use of prescription medications as cognitive enhancers in healthy individuals has generated expectations and concerns in academic circles, clinicians, and beyond in the public domain. Eric Racine will give a short insight into the background on non-medical use of prescription drugs for cognitive enhancement and will illustrate how the existence of different discourses and wideranging stakeholder perspectives yield a complex understanding of the public and clinical ethical landscape of cognitive enhancement.

Eric Racine ist Professor für Neuroethik an der Université de Montréal und derzeit Visiting Fellow am CAS.
