Neuroethics in Practice

Until recently, treatments for neurological and psychiatric impairment have been largely limited to drugs, rehabilitation therapy or psychotherapy. These treatments are often only modestly successful in helping patients to recover function. In contrast to these approaches, the past twenty years have seen remarkable improvements in restoring lost nervous system function from brain-machine interfaces. While some neurotechnologies do not require surgery, this chapter focuses on implanted neural interfaces (INIs): devices placed in or around the brain and spinal cord for the restoration of mobility, hearing, vision, speech, balance, mood, or cognition.

Keywords:   neurological impairment, psychiatric impairment, treatment, brain-machine interfaces, nervous system function, neurotechnologies, implanted neural interfaces, INIs, neuroethics
