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

Cognitive deficits are a common consequence of neurological disease, and there is evidence that specific cognitive training may be effective in rehabilitation.
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 ...

Video game training refers to the use of commercially available video game consoles (e.g. Nintendo WiiTM, Sony PlayStation EyeToy, Microsoft XBox Kinect) for post-stroke rehabilitation.. Video gaming has the potential to be beneficial as it is affordable, designed to be entertaining and fun, can be used at home, individually or in groups (e.g. pairs), and can provide repetitive exercises with increases in level of difficulty. Before recommending the use of video game training as a common clinical technique for upper limb rehabilitation, it is important to understand the current evidence on its effectiveness.. The present module includes studies that examined the use of commercially available video game consoles for upper limb rehabilitation. Studies that did not report on any upper limb related outcomes were excluded. Similarly, studies that were not randomized clinical trials (RCTs) or poorly designed quasi-experimental studies were excluded.. Currently, eleven RCTs and one well designed ...
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 ...

N2 - Background: This descriptive review of the literature outlines the current evidence-base underpinning the potential of transcranial brain stimulation techniques to modulate swallowing function in healthy individuals and in treating post-stroke dysphagia. Methods: Published research was identified by review of scientific databases (Scopus, Medline Ovid, Science Direct, AMED and Google Scholar) using relevant keywords. In addition, the reference lists of identified articles were scrutinized to identify further potentially relevant papers. Studies employing variants of transcranial magnetic or direct current stimulation for the purpose of modulating swallowing motor cortical excitability in healthy participants or dysphagia following stroke were ...
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
In neurology, as in all branches of medicine, symptoms of disease and the resulting burden of illness and disability are not simply the consequence of the injury, inflammation or dysfunction of a given organ; they also reflect the consequences of the nervous systems attempt to adapt to the insult. This plastic response includes compensatory changes that prove adaptive for the individual, as well as changes that contribute to functional disability and are, therefore, maladaptive. In this context, brain stimulation techniques tailored to modulate individual plastic changes associated with neurological diseases might enhance clinical benefits and minimize adverse effects. In this Review, we discuss the use of two noninvasive brain stimulation techniques-repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation-to modulate activity in the targeted cortex or in a dysfunctional network, to restore an adaptive equilibrium in a disrupted network for best behavioral outcome, 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…. ...

As bendera putih cropped up in communities all over the country, Malaysians began to rise up in droves, mobilising financial and material support via sightings of white flags and white t-shirts in their own neighbourhoods and in virtual groups. Geographies of aid are made real through rapidly developed mobile apps and websites that tag locations of givers and takers. This is embodied, emergent solidarity to transform the objective reality on the ground, even as the establishment seeks to downplay peoples acute suffering and discredit their testimony. In a display of shared symbolic and linguistic recognition of the bendera putih, similar movements have cropped up in Indonesia.. Something had been brewing at home.. I argue that #BenderaPutih is a political act, one that educates Malaysians about solidarity in and through action. As the people seek to give and survive in an organic movement, a process of learning is embodied. #BenderaPutih seemed like a project of making a new reality, a new ...
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 ...
