Journal of Medical Ethics. 1998 Apr; 24(2): 118-122.
The use of human brain tissue in neuroscience research is increasing. Recent developments include transplanting neural tissue, growing or maintaining neural tissue in laboratories and using surgically removed tissue for experimentation. Also, it is likely that in the future there will be attempts at partial or complete brain transplants. A discussion of the ethical issues of using human brain tissue for research and brain transplantation has been organized around nine broadly defined topic areas. Criteria for human brain tissue transplantation and laboratory use of brain tissue are proposed.
Animal Experimentation; Biomedical Research; Brain; Brain Death; Cell Lines; Computers; Consent; Death; Electrical Stimulation of the Brain; Emotions; Ethical Review; Human Body; Human Experimentation; Informed Consent; Laboratories; Organ Donation; Organ Transplantation; Personhood; Regulation; Research; Review; Tissue Donation; Tissue Transplantation; Transplantation;
