Human Dignity and Brain Intervention

Date: May 7 - 8, 2010

Organizers: Jan C. Joerden (Frankfurt (Oder)), Eric Hilgendorf (Würzburg), Felix Thiele (Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler)

The workshop ‘Human Dignity and Brain Intervention’ dealt with medical-technical basic research and critical assumptions about its moral implications. Lecturers from various fields (psychology, psychiatry, as well as neuro- and cognitive sciences) gave insights into their research subjects which concerned e.g. functionalities of the memory, therapy by operative neural control and socially operating artificial intelligences. All these varied conference subjects had in common the question of ethical, sociological as well as anthropological implications of the human dignity concept and their modifications in the course of new methods for brain intervention.
