My current research interests concentrate on the ethical issues that arise within the overlapping fields of neuromedicine, nanomedicine and bionics, principally the challenges to conception of Self, Free Will, and Enhancement posed by novel technologies developments in the area of brain implant. Part of my past research examined neuropathologies related to dysfunctional behavior and on neurodegenerative disease associated with lack of responsibility. Moreover, I have been working on questions connected to the impact of neuroimaging and medical imaging on the scientific and popular cultures, the debate of equity in the allocation health care resources, and the discussion of the use of therapeutic stem cells for spinal cord injuries.
