2012 Film Festival - NeuroEthics

Date: 23rd Nov ' - 25th Nov '
Location: Filmhouse, 88 Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH3 9BZ [ Map ]

Do we have free will, or is our behaviour ultimately controlled by our biological brains? Does morality actually exist?

Recent advances in our understanding of neurobiology have raised a number of ethical questions for human beings. Does the responsibility of an individual actually exist? If it doesn't what are then the consequences for our legal systems and the manner in which human beings see themselves. Could they just be considered as biological robots or zombies?
