Rapidly advancing neurotechnologies are improving prevention, diagnosis, and management of neurological and psychiatric conditions; revealing new insights about cognition; and may be used outside the clinic by employers, schools, and governments.

Against this backdrop, the Neurotech Justice Summit will examine the meaning of “neurotech justice”, its interplay with neurorights, and how a focus on justice can positively shape the trajectory of neurotechnology development and application. Addressing the ethical, legal, social, and existential implications of emerging neurotechnologies is a complex task requiring input from a variety of disciplines and stakeholders. This Summit will bring to bear a range of such perspectives, including those of traditionally marginalized groups. The Summit will feature presentations, conversations, and audience participation to explore how neurotech justice can be achieved in the medical clinic, in the legal courtroom, and other key social contexts.

This event was funded by a grant from the Dana Foundation.
