Emerging Ethical Challenges in Advanced Neuroimaging Research: Review, Recommendations and Research Agenda
Journal of Empirical Research on Human Research Ethics 2007 June; 2(2): 1-10
The dynamic and ever-evolving nature of neuroimaging research creates important ethical challenges. New domains of neuroscience research and improving technological capabilities in neuroimaging have expanded the scope of studies that probe the biology of the social and ethical brain, the range of eligible volunteers for research, and the extent of academic-industry relationships. Accordingly, challenges in informed consent and subject protection are surfacing. In this context, we provide an overview of the current landscape for neuroimaging and discuss specific research ethics topics arising from it. We suggest preliminary approaches to tackle current issues, and identify areas for further collaboration between neuroimagers and institutional review boards (research ethics committee).

Racine, Eric; Northoff, Georg; Menon, Ravi S; Kimmelman, Jonathan; Illes, Judy (2011-07)Neuroimaging research has raised ethical concerns such as the management of unexpected findings and the classification and assessment of risks. Research ethics boards (REBs) bear responsibility for the oversight of these ...
