Abstract

Advances in brain science and research tools promise to increase our understanding of the human brain, treat brain injury and mental illnesses, and enhance cognition, perception, mood, and alertness. Novel neurotechnologies present opportunities but also profound societal questions and require stakeholders to deeply consider ethical, legal, and medical challenges. The current Special Issue of Journal of Responsible Innovation explores the interface of neurotechnology and society in an international context, defining neurotechnology broadly as technical tools aimed at generating better knowledge of the brain and/or intervening in its function. The Issue features a unique and globally drawn group of authors from the public, private, philanthropic, and academic sectors. Together, and befitting the complex challenges of innovating responsibly in a social context, they explore neurotechnology as a simultaneously technical and social practice.
