In our DocAG "Neuroenhancement" we would like to discuss different approaches that have been claimed to enhance cognitive functioning in healthy people. We are especially interested in which methods have already been investigated scientifically and in how far there is evidence for or against their effectiveness. We are especially interested in, but not limited to, pharmacological and invasive interventions, cognitive strategies and other devices that might enhance cognitive functions. Additionally, we would like to shed light on ethical aspects of neuroenhancement and the role of neuroscientists in the methodological development of neuorenhancers in a public panel discussion.

Our next meeting will take place on January 25th, 2018 at 4:00 pm in the LIN Cafeteria.
