Abstract:

In light of ongoing progress in both neuroscience and neurotechnology, it is critical to address, explicate and examine the ethical, legal and social issues that arise in, and from such research and applications if we are to assert and maintain 1 ongoing moral integrity both domestically and on the global stage, and 2 advance these fields in national security, defense and intelligence so as to ensure against their corruption and frank misuse - both domestically and by other nations andor groups. Toward these ends, the proposed conference NELSI-3 will conjoin a group or recognized scholars to engage a discursive and dialectical approach to these issues as particularly suited to an invited audience of concerned and influential representatives from the governmental, ST, research, development, testing and evaluation RDTE, public and media communities.
