Neuroscience and ethics in the face of the pandemic: Lessons from Italy

INS SATELLITE EVENT – SINE

OCTOBER 23rd, 2020

16:00–17:00 CET (10:00–11:00AM EDT)

Everyone can freely attend by writing in advance to convegno@societadineuroetica.it and receiving a link to the Zoom platform.

Italy was a laboratory for the first acute phase of the COVID-19 epidemic. Today, we can start dealing with the health and social consequences through the lens of brain sciences and the related ethical issues. In this panel, some key topics will be addressed, starting from coping with the stress of healthcare workers up to the contribution of social neuroscience in clarifying the mechanisms that can contribute to enforcing individual and collective protection duties. Outstanding speakers with different scientific backgrounds will show how neuroethics can be the right perspective to study some features of the pandemic and can make an important contribution both in understanding and in suggesting specific policies.
