Implant ethics. (1/26)

Implant ethics is defined here as the study of ethical aspects of the lasting introduction of technological devices into the human body. Whereas technological implants relieve us of some of the ethical problems connected with transplantation, other difficulties arise that are in need of careful analysis. A systematic approach to implant ethics is proposed. The major specific problems are identified as those concerning end of life issues (turning off devices), enhancement of human capabilities beyond normal levels, mental changes and personal identity, and cultural effects.  (+info)

International perspectives on engaging the public in neuroethics. (2/26)

With an ever-increasing understanding of the brain mechanisms associated with core human attributes and values, there is an increasing public interest in the results of neuroscience research and the ways in which that new knowledge will be used. Here, we present perspectives on engaging the public on these issues on an international scale, the role of the media, and prospects for the new field of neuroethics as both a focus and a driver of these efforts.  (+info)

True to oneself? Broad and narrow ideas on authenticity in the enhancement debate. (3/26)

Our knowledge of the human brain and the influence of pharmacological substances on human mental functioning is expanding. This creates new possibilities to enhance personality and character traits. Psychopharmacological enhancers, as well as other enhancement technologies, raise moral questions concerning the boundary between clinical therapy and enhancement, risks and safety, coercion and justice. Other moral questions include the meaning and value of identity and authenticity, the role of happiness for a good life, or the perceived threats to humanity. Identity and authenticity are central in the debate on psychopharmacological enhancers. In this paper, I first describe the concerns at issue here as extensively propounded by Carl Elliott. Next, I address David DeGrazia's theory, which holds that there are no fundamental identity-related and authenticity-related arguments against enhancement technologies. I argue, however, that DeGrazia's line of reasoning does not succeed in settling these concerns. His conception of identity does not seem able to account for the importance we attach to personal identity in cases where personal identity is changed through enhancement technology. Moreover, his conception of authenticity does not explain the reason why we find inauthentic values objectionable. A broader approach to authenticity can make sense of concerns about changes in personal identity by means of enhancement technologies.  (+info)

Neurotech for neuroscience: unifying concepts, organizing principles, and emerging tools. (4/26)

The ability to tackle analysis of the brain at multiple levels simultaneously is emerging from rapid methodological developments. The classical research strategies of "measure," "model," and "make" are being applied to the exploration of nervous system function. These include novel conceptual and theoretical approaches, creative use of mathematical modeling, and attempts to build brain-like devices and systems, as well as other developments including instrumentation and statistical modeling (not covered here). Increasingly, these efforts require teams of scientists from a variety of traditional scientific disciplines to work together. The potential of such efforts for understanding directed motor movement, emergence of cognitive function from neuronal activity, and development of neuromimetic computers are described by a team that includes individuals experienced in behavior and neuroscience, mathematics, and engineering. Funding agencies, including the National Science Foundation, explore the potential of these changing frontiers of research for developing research policies and long-term planning.  (+info)

Neuroenhancement refers to the targeted enhancement and extension of cognitive and affective abilities based on an understanding of their underlying neurobiology in healthy persons who do not have any mental illness. As such, it can be thought of as an umbrella term that encompasses pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods of improving cognitive, affective, and motor functionality, as well as the overarching ethico-legal discourse that accompanies these aims. Critically, for any agent to qualify as a neuroenhancer, it must reliably engender substantial cognitive, affective, or motor benefits beyond normal functioning in healthy individuals, whilst causing few side effects: at most at the level of commonly used comparable legal substances or activities, such as caffeine, alcohol, and sleep-deprivation. Pharmalogical neuroenhancement agents include the well-validated nootropics, such as racetam, vinpocetine, and phosphatidylserine, as well as other drugs used for treating patients suffering ...
Over the last few weeks Ive been doing a lot of thinking about psychedelics and moral enhancement. I met up with Jules Evans a few days ago to talk about psychedelic enquiry, while he was finishing off this piece on whether psychedelics make you a better person. I think his piece is excellent; it cuts through the romantic notions that usually surround the issue, and doesnt bother with the tentative preparation of the reader that many philosophers employ when raising it.. Thomas Douglas (2008) raises a Kantian objection to moral enhancement; that the moral goodness of our desired motives is wholly determined by the earlier motives for bringing them about. I think this is interesting and Id like to explore it. Lets say I would like to be a better person (I do). I would like to be more caring, friendlier, and more empathetic. Why? Maybe because I want to improve other peoples life experience. I feel that being that way in my interactions with others will help them to feel better about ...

Researchers will undertake Phase I of a planned two-phase study to ultimately determine whether a non-invasive brain stimulation technique helps schizophrenia patients learn from positive rewards and reduce the "negative" symptoms that characterize this disease. Schizophrenia is characterized by "positive" states that are manifested by patients hallucinations and delusions, and by "negative" states in which patients lack emotion, motivation, and an ability to experience pleasure. These negative symptoms are thought to arise because patients have difficulty learning to repeat actions that are most likely to yield rewarding outcomes. What produces this learning disability? Scientists suspect that it occurs because neurons deep in the brains center (midbrain) dont produce enough of the excitatory neurotransmitter "dopamine" to successfully send communication signals. If that is the case, midbrain neurons cannot send sufficient signals that reinforce learning from rewarding situations to the part ...
A number of studies have found evidence that older adults can benefit from cognitive training. However, neural plasticity is thought to decline with age, and because of this, its thought that the younger-old, and/or the higher-functioning, may benefit more than the older-old, or the lower-functioning. On the other hand, because their performance may already be as good as it can be, higher-functioning seniors may be less likely to benefit. You can find evidence for both of these views.. In a new study, 19 of 39 older adults (aged 60-77) were given training in a multiplayer online video game called World of Warcraft (the other 20 formed a control group). This game was chosen because it involves multitasking and switching between various cognitive abilities. It was theorized that the demands of the game would improve both spatial orientation and attentional control, and that the multiple tasks might produce more improvement in those with lower initial ability compared to those with higher ...

Around 94 percent of the students surveyed had already heard of neuroenhancement. 13.8 percent of these students had tried to improve their cognitive performance with prescription medication or legal or illegal drugs at least once during their degrees. The substance most used was alcohol (5.6%), followed by methylphenidate such as Ritalin (4.1%), sedatives and soporifics (2.7%), cannabis (2.5%), beta-blockers (1.2%), amphetamines (0.4%), and cocaine (0.2%).. The respondents primarily took these substances during the exam preparation period, only consuming stimulating substances rarely in the exam situation or for general stress during their degrees. While daily neuroenhancement was a rare occurrence (1.8%), the majority consumed "soft enhancers" such as caffeinated products, non-prescription vitamin products or herbal sedatives before their last big exam - around a third even every day.. The number of Swiss students who take neuroenhancing drugs is comparable with recent studies conducted at ...
Vitamin B12 is a cofactor of methionine synthase in the synthesis of methionine, the precursor of the universal methyl donor S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe), which is involved in different epigenomic regulatory mechanisms and especially in brain development. A Vitamin B12 deficiency expresses itself by a wide variety of neurological manifestations such as paraesthesias, skin numbness, coordination disorders and reduced nerve conduction velocity. In elderly people, a latent Vitamin B12 deficiency can be associated with a progressive brain atrophy. Moderately elevated concentrations of homocysteine (|10 µmol/L) have been associated with an increased risk of dementia, notably Alzheimers disease, in many cross-sectional and prospective studies. Raised plasma concentrations of homocysteine is also associated with both regional and whole brain atrophy, not only in Alzheimers disease but also in healthy elderly people. Clinician awareness should be raised to accurately diagnose and treat early Vitamin B12

My recent reports on brain training for older adults (see, e.g., Review of working memory training programs finds no broader benefit; Cognitive training shown to help healthy older adults; Video game training benefits cognition in some older adults) converge on the idea that cognitive training can indeed be beneficial for older adults cognition, but theres little wider transfer beyond the skills being practiced. That in itself can be valuable, but it does reinforce the idea that the best cognitive training covers a number of different domains or skill-sets. A new study adds little to this evidence, but does perhaps emphasize the importance of persistence and regularity in training.. The study involved 59 older adults (average age 84), of whom 33 used a brain fitness program 5 days a week for 30 minutes a day for at least 8 weeks, while the other group of 26 were put on a waiting list for the program. After two months, both groups were given access to the program, and both were encouraged to ...

As a Stroke Neurologist I treat patients during the first minutes to hours after stroke onset. Aggressive acute stroke therapies are able to prevent more severe disabilities. However, many patients still experience persistent significant sensory and motor deficits. Fortunately, intensive rehabilitation can restore some lost function. The goal of our studies is to further improve quality of life of stroke survivors months to years after stroke. My research interests focus on identifying and understanding the neuroplastic changes in brain structure and function with the goal of designing complementary approaches to enhance functional recovery after stroke. Our interdisciplinary research team that includes biomedical engineers, physical therapists and neurologists, is using state of the art neuroimaging techniques to study neuroplasticity in response to rehabilitation. We are developing new approaches to boost recovery through the use of non-invasive brain stimulation, e.g. Transcranial Magnetic ...

They also arent sure that their new bosses really want to hear about lingering problems and safety concerns. FirstEnergy Corp. officials have to regain that trust for the plant to reopen and operate safely, the companys own management and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission agreed at a lengthy plant progress meeting yesterday. A survey in early 1999 measuring nuclear workers comfort with notifying their bosses of possible safety issues without fear of reprisal showed the FirstEnergys nuclear division had a problem. Results improved somewhat in a follow-up study done this January, just a few weeks before inspectors found a rust hole in the reactors lid. Now that FirstEnergy has made wholesale management changes and is embarking on a $145 million-plus series of repairs at the plant 87 miles west of Cleveland, the new bosses wanted to know if anything had changed morale-wise.

The idea that modern science took place as a kind of revolution has been debated among historians. A weakness of the idea of scientific revolution is the lack of a systematic approach to the question of knowledge in the period comprehended between the 14th and 17th centuries, leading to misunderstandings on the value and role of modern authors. From this standpoint, the continuity thesis is the hypothesis that there was no radical discontinuity between the intellectual development of the Middle Ages and the developments in the Renaissance and early modern period and has been deeply and widely documented by the works of scholars like Pierre Duhem, John Hermann Randall, Alistair Crombie and William A. Wallace, who proved the preexistence of a wide range of ideas used by the followers of the Scientific Revolution thesis to substantiate their claims. Thus, the idea of a scientific revolution following the Renaissance is-according to the continuity thesis-a myth. Some continuity theorists point to ...
The recent development of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has allowed the non-invasive assessment of cerebellar function in humans. Early studies showed that cerebellar activity, as reflected in the excitability of the dentate-thalamo-cortical pathway, can be assessed with paired stimulation of the cerebellum and the primary motor cortex (M1) (cerebellar inhibition of motor cortex, CBI). Following this, many attempts have been made, using techniques such as repetitive TMS and transcranial electrical stimulation (TES), to modulate the activity of the cerebellum and the dentate-thalamo-cortical output, and measure their impact on M1 activity. The present article reviews literature concerned with the impact of non-invasive stimulation of cerebellum on M1 measures of excitability and

These guidelines provide an up-date of previous IFCN report on Non-invasive electrical and magnetic stimulation of the brain, spinal cord and roots: basic principles and procedures for routine clinical application (Rossini et al., 1994). A new Committee, composed of international experts, some of whom were in the panel of the 1994 Report, was selected to produce a current state-of-the-art review of non-invasive stimulation both for clinical application and research in neuroscience. Since 1994, the international scientific community has seen a rapid increase in non-invasive brain stimulation in studying cognition, brain-behavior relationship and pathophysiology of various neurologic and psychiatric disorders. New paradigms of stimulation and new techniques have been developed. Furthermore, a large number of studies and clinical trials have demonstrated potential therapeutic applications of non-invasive brain stimulation, especially for TMS. Recent guidelines can be found in the literature ...
The label of chronic non-neuropathic pain includes several pathological conditions, ranging from fibromyalgia to low-back pain and irritable bowel syndrome, where pain is a prominent, highly disabling symptom. Pathophysiological mechanisms underlying these particular forms of pain--that dont follow any clear, documentable damage at the peripheral and/or central nervous system--remain largely unexplained, and poor, often ineffective therapeutic resources are available. Very recently, magnetic resonance imaging techniques have revealed subtle structural and functional brain abnormalities in such diseases particularly affecting areas involved in pain perception and control in the domain of the so-called pain matrix. Interestingly, abnormalities of peripheral nociceptive innervation have also been found in these patients by histochemical analysis of cutaneous specimens obtained by skin biopsy. Recent years have seen the growth of new technologies able to regulate or interfere with cortical activity based

Associate Prof. Marianna Pavlovskaya of the Geography Department Wins an NSF Grant to Study and Map the Solidarity Economy in the United States. Throughout the world, solidarity economies involve economic practices that orient themselves toward social and environmental sustainability rather than profit maximization and competition. In the United States they include, for example, cooperative businesses, community land trusts, credit unions, community supported agriculture, and other businesses that prioritize cooperation, democratic participation, and social inclusion. The solidarity economy has substantial but unrecognized positive impacts because it helps to increase economic activity, employment, well-being, and overall socio-environmental sustainability by putting first the interests of the working people, consumers, and communities. It thus might be able to influence the formation of new models of development as we begin looking for them in the aftermath of the current financial and economic ...
Objective: We aimed to investigate the efficacy of 20 Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of either right or left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) as compared to sham rTMS for the relief of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)-associated symptoms.. Method: In this double-blind, placebo-controlled phase II trial conducted between October 2005 and July 2008, 30 patients with DSM-IV-diagnosed PTSD were randomly assigned to receive 1 of the following treatments: active 20 Hz rTMS of the right DLPFC, active 20 Hz rTMS of the left DLPFC, or sham rTMS. Treatments were administered in 10 daily sessions over 2 weeks. A blinded rater assessed severity of core PTSD symptoms, depression, and anxiety before, during, and after completion of the treatment protocol. In addition, a battery of neuropsychological tests was measured before and after treatment.. Results: Results show that both active conditions-20 Hz rTMS of left and right DLPFC-induced a significant decrease in PTSD ...

Dear sisters and brothers,. Some comrades from Frankfurt got in touch recently, wanting to set up a solidarity network. They approached us with some concrete questions. [1] We want to use the opportunity to reflect more generally on our limited experiences with our solidarity network initiative so far and about the political direction we want to take steps towards. We do this against the current background of post-election Corbyn-mania and a surge in political activities focused on the Labour Party. The first part of this text briefly explains our opposition to the focus on electoral activities, whether that be through the Labour machinery or in the more post-modern form of municipalism [2] - despite the fact that locally in our area, the election circus had less of an impact, given that most workers here are not allowed to vote anyway. And as an alternative to this electoral turn, the second…. ...
In a translational setting we investigate basic neuroplastic mechanisms of sensorimotor functions in healthy subjects and their modulation in the presence of brain diseases such as stroke or Parkinsons disease. Different training- and learning interventions are being used and their effect characterized using non-invasive brain imaging techniques (Functional and structural MRI, EEG). We particularly focus on the investigation of neurophysiological mechanisms underlying neuroplasticity-inducing non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) or transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS). To do this we use neuroimaging and brain stimulation techniques both separately and in combination (tDCS - fMRI; tACS - fMRI ...

MONTREAL, Oct. 17, 2015- The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada celebrates an evening of solidarity at The Light The Night Walk in Montreal.
The outcome of the Bydgoszcz confrontation was decisive in providing a framework within which the events of the next six months took place. The regime had discovered it was by no means strong enough to smash Solidarity. But the Solidarity praesidium had shown that it had no intention of leading the workers forward with a perspective of smashing the regime. The result was a condition of mutual paralysis, an equilibrium between roughly equal forces.. The apostles of conciliation interpreted this as meaning that a long-term agreement between Solidarity and the regime was possible, that the moderates on both sides would be able to get together and spell out the terms of a new social contract.. It was with this perspective that enormous hopes were placed in the special Party Congress of the summer by the western press, by the moderates in Solidarity, by Eurocommunists and even by some western Trotskyists. [39] It was believed that reformers in the Party would win control of the Congress and ...
The seventh term of UID-DER activities was started by an opening event in UID-DERs Sefaköy Branch (Istanbul) on 7 October. Among so many workers from various industries present in the event, there were DHL cargo workers who have been on unofficial strike and also Iranian socialist immigrant workers among us.. In his speech the chairman of UID-DER, Bayram Yılmaz, said: "My brothers/sisters, I tell you what, this picture makes me feel proud. Our association was founded for achieving the unity of workers and strengthening their solidarity. One of our aims was to demonstrate the power of workers. And all together we were successful in doing that. Our association is growing rapidly with your support. Every day hundreds of new workers learn about UID-DER. Only in the campaign for stopping the attempt to abolish the redundancy pay we were able to reach more than 250.000 workers and explained to them the reality. These were all accomplished thanks to UID-DER members and supporters who worked hard. I ...

The term "autism" comes from the Greek word "autos," meaning self, used to describe conditions of social withdrawal-or the isolated self. Around 1910, a Swiss psychiatrist first used the term to refer to certain symptoms of schizophrenia. Later, in the 1940s, physicians Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger independently used that name to describe what was a newly discovered developmental disorder whose primary symptom was social withdrawal. Today, autism is just one of three diagnoses that the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) includes in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). While medical and neurosciences understanding of this condition has grown exponentially, research has been fraught with controversy. Autism appears to be on the rise, depending on how you define it; and research findings suggest that its causes are more complex than previously imagined. In Scientific Americans newest eBook, Understanding Autism: The Search for Answers, weve gathered the most current ...
... ) - The term "autism" was first used in 1911 by Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler, who presumably invoked the Greek autos, meaning "self." Bleuler was describing the behavior of many schizophrenics, whereby they withdraw into their own inner world. But it was Dr. Leo Kanner, founder of child psychiatry, later assisted by Dr. Leon Eisenberg, who would produce the definitive works on this disease.. In a 1956 paper entitled "Early Infantile Autism 1943-1955," Kanner and Eisenberg distilled the formers five diagnostic criteria down to these two features.... 1. A profound lack of affective contact. 2. Repetitive, ritualistic behavior, which must be of an elaborate kind. They stated that if these two features were observed, the rest of the typical clinical picture--as described in Kanners 1943 breakthrough paper entitled "Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact"--would also present. It was noted that this condition might be observed in one to two children per 10,000. The ...

How do real individuals live together in real societies in the real world? What binds societies together and how can these social orders be structured in a fair way? This book addresses this central paradox of modern life. Feelings for others-the solidarity that is ignored or underplayed by theories of power or self-interest-are at the heart of this novel inquiry into the meeting place between normative theories of what we think we should do and empirical studies of who we actually are. The book demonstrates that solidarity creates inclusive and exclusive social structures, and shows how they can be repaired. It is not perfect, it is not absolute, and the horrors which occur in its lapses have been seen all too frequently in the forms of discrimination, genocide, and war. Despite its worldly flaws and contradictions, however, solidarity and the project of civil society remain our best hope-the antidote to every divisive institution, every unfair distribution, and every abusive and dominating hierarchy.
Solidarity plays a relevant role in rare diseases (RDs) research to create and enable research in the field. In Europe RDs are estimated to affect between 27 and 36 million people even though single RDs can count very few patients, making the contribution of everyone essential to reach solid results. Often RD research is initiated by patient groups devoting substantial time and resources to the scientific enterprise. In RD research solidarity is often evocated and expressed, in different ways and on different levels, so that it is possible to talk about "solidarities" played by different stakeholders and sometimes conflicting with each other ...

Importance of ICP is the same as of arterial blood pressure (ABP) because cerebral blood flow is influenced by CPP, with CPP = ABP- ICP. Importantly, cerebral blood flow depends on the status of cerebrovascular autoregulation. Individual optimal CPP (optCPP) means patient- specific CPP at which CVA is kept intact by individual treatment actions in order to decrease the rate of unfavorable patients treatment outcome. Currently, only invasive ICP monitoring technologies are available within the contemporary brain injury management. The ambitious technological task of developing non-invasive ICP and CVA monitoring technologies suitable for the clinical practice in terms of accuracy and precision as well as identification of the individual optCPP for daily routine is of extreme scientific importance.. The innovative non-invasive ICP and CVA monitoring methods developed in Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) are protected by the US, EU and Japan patents. In this project the prospective clinical ...
Darwins greatest contribution to science is that he completed the Copernican Revolution by drawing out for biology the notion of nature as a system of matter in motion governed by natural laws. With Darwins discovery of natural selection, the origin and adaptations of organisms were brought into the realm of science. The adaptive features of organisms could now be explained, like the phenomena of the inanimate world, as the result of natural processes, without recourse to an Intelligent Designer. The Copernican and the Darwinian Revolutions may be seen as the two stages of the one Scientific Revolution. They jointly ushered in the beginning of science in the modern sense of the word: explanation through natural laws. Darwins theory of natural selection accounts for the "design" of organisms, and for their wondrous diversity, as the result of natural processes, the gradual accumulation of spontaneously arisen variations (mutations) sorted out by natural selection. Which characteristics will be ...
If youre looking at the highlights of human development, you have to look at the evolution of the organism, and then add the development of the interaction with its environment. Evolution of the organism will begin with the evolution of life, proceeding through the hominid, coming to the evolution of mankind: neanderthal, cro-magnon man. Now, interestingly, what youre looking at here are three strains: biological, anthropological (development of cities, cultures), and cultural (which is human expression). Now, what youve seen here is the evolution of populations, not so much the evolution of individuals. And in addition, if you look at the time-scale thats involved here: two billion years for life, six million years for the hominid, a hundred-thousand years for mankind as we know it, youre beginning to see the telescoping nature of the evolutionary paradigm. And then, when you get to agriculture, when you get to the scientific revolution and the industrial revolution, youre looking at ten ...
Darwin started a scientific revolution 1859 just as Venter/Collins started one now with the sequencing of the human genome. One should of course recall the structure to function paradigm started by the elucidation of DNA structure 1953. This time is ethical problems rather than religious that will be discussed and that are inhibitory. Venter is interviewed in Spiegel Online International today where he plays down the importance of the sequencing. Venters team has however found a tremendous amount of new genes from sea organisms. This bank of information might teach us how nature is constructed since evolution is supposed to originate from the sea. It will be very interesting to know if Venter will find the motifs to our own genes and proteins among these. But The Economist had an survey of genome research the other day where they said that it was now known that there are many genes (,100,000) giving rise to RNA over the 23,000 or so known for making proteins. One such RNA is microRNA, ...
