Theoretical foundations, as well as practical and ethical aspects are addressed. Participants will benefit from a combination of lectures with group work and discussions, where they will put the learned content into practice.

The school offers two parallel tracks: The Philosophical Track focuses on theoretical aspects, metaethics and moral responsibility. The Empirical Track offers theoretical foundations as well as a number of practical ethical aspects in neuroscience, such as animal research, clinical practice, deep brain stimulation, neuro-enhancement, brain reading, neuro-law, good scientific practice, and ethics committees.


The lectures are hosted in different lecture halls of the Campus Nord of the Humboldt-Universität and Charité Medical School (access from Philippstr. 13, 10115 Berlin or from Luisenstrasse 56, 10117 Berlin). The first lecture on Monday will take place at Philippstr. 13 Haus 4, lecture hall 4 (Hörsaal 4) on the campus.
