Gabriella Panuccio in The Biohybrid Brain
This blog intends to be a platform linking scientific and technological progression of the Neural Engineering field, including Artificial Intelligence applied to the Neurosciences, and the ethical and psycho-social concerns raised by the concept of man-machine hybridization; its scope is to raise awareness and understanding and to address the misconceptions and fears of biohybrid biomedical interventions to cure the brain.
Why should people use this category?
This category lies at the border among science, technology and ethics. It may be used to start any topic relating to neurotechnology, biological-to-artificial (biohybrid) interfaces, neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience relative to the concepts of restoration of brain function and augmentation of it, both for therapeutic purposes and for enhancing human brain performance.
This category intends to be a cross-disciplinary platform expanding beyond the research, where people can actively engage in constructive debates about S&T progression relative to man-machine hybridization along with the ethics and policy concerns deriving from it.
What should topics in this category generally contain?
Topics in this category should go well beyond the world of Neuroscience alone, including Philosophy of Science and History of Philosophy in a unique conceptual framework, drawing from the different topics around the forum.
