About

The Center for Cognition and Neuroethics (CCN) promotes both the exploration of the conceptual foundations of the neurosciences and the study of the implications of their advances for society in the legal, political, and ethical realms. CCN will disseminate this knowledge to as wide an audience as possible through publications, seminars, and other media. We engage in activities across multiple disciplines and professions that allow opportunities for intellectual synergy and increased impact by creating, fostering and supporting research and educational collaborations and communication.


CCN is a joint affiliation between the Department of Philosophy at the University of Michigan-Flint and the Insight Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience (IINN). CCN was formed with the goal of fostering genuinely interdisciplinary research with the belief that the skills and knowledge that each side of the partnership brings to the collaboration can enrich and inform the other. Just as Neuroscience can benefit from close analysis of its fundamental ethical and conceptual assumptions, so Philosophy is greatly enriched by being exposed to the complexity of the world that Neuroscience is exploring. It is our hope that the creation of the Center for Cognition and Neuroethics will initiate unparalleled multidisciplinary opportunities.
