'Neuroscience studies the brain and mind, and thereby some of the most profound aspects of human existence. In the last decade, advances in imaging and manipulating the brain have raised ethical challenges, particularly about the moral limits of the use of such technology, leading to the new discipline of neuroethics. The Oxford Centre for Neuroethics, led by experts from ethics, philosophy of mind, neuroscience, neurology, psychiatry and legal theory, will be the first international centre in the UK dedicated to neuroethical research.

'The Oxford Centre for Neuroethics is funded through the Wellcome Trust’s Biomedical Ethics Strategic Awards programme. This five-year funding stream enables added value to research by encouraging the development of new methodologies, interdisciplinary work, and the training of students and fellows. The award will allow us to establish neuroethical research in the UK, and to develop expertise from student level through PhD funding and supervision, upwards. One of only a handful of neuroethics centres in the world, and the first in the UK, the strong support and wealth of expertise of our collaborators, fellow investigators and advisory board will allow us to draw on the latest research in neuroscience, law, ethics and medicine.'
