Resumo da conferência

Poucas áreas do conhecimento trazem mudanças fundamentais tão rapidamente como a Ciência e a Medicina. A conferência proferida pela Doutora Judy Illes incidirá sobre as possibilidades (cada vez maiores) de se adquirirem assinaturas do “self” – dos genes ao cérebro – através do uso da ressonância magnética funcional bem como de outras neurotecnologias modernas.
Quais serão as implicações dos novos avanços para a compreensão das pessoas enquanto seres biológicos, para o bem-estar do cérebro e para a sociedade? As respostas a estas questões residem no delicado equilíbrio entre o conhecimento, a autonomia, os valores e a privacidade.

Judy Illes é Directora do Programa de Neuroética no Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics. A sua investigação está focada nos desafios éticos, legais sociais e políticos nas neurociências.

La vida es un tango y el que no baila es un tonto

La vida es un tango y el que no baila es un tonto
Dos calhaus da memória ao empedernido dos tempos

Onde a liquidez da água livre

Onde a liquidez da água livre
Também pode alcançar o céu
