5ª International Conference of Neuroethics


Health Neuroscience: the role of Ethics in the definition of a New Field

16-17 September 2019

Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation – Lisbon - Portugal


Health neuroscience is a new field that is at the interface of health and neuroscience. A chief goal of health neuroscience is not only to characterize bidirectional and dynamic brain-behaviour and brain- physiology relationships that are determinants, markers, and consequences of physical-health states across the life span. The motivation behind the ICONE is that a better understanding of ethics concerns will provide insights into how the brain links multilevel genetic, biological, psychological, behavioural, social, and environmental factors with physical health—especially vulnerability to and resilience against clinical illnesses
