Major challenges have marked the field of bioethics over the past two decades. Parallel to a rapid expansion of knowledge in genomics and molecular biology, the field of neuroscience has markedly expanded to become one of the leading fields in biomedical science and health research worldwide, generating an endless stream of exciting new discoveries and development. As the number and the scope of neuroscience studies on cognitive and social behavior are still rapidly expanding, issues related to either the ethics of neuroscience or the neuroscience of ethics continue to emerge, challenging academicians, governments and civil society as a whole. The increasingly global nature of scientific inquiries and healthcare research requires international participation to address all key issues related to biomedical ethics in general. The globalization of perspectives in neuroethics is essential for increasing knowledge of neuroscience and cross-fertilizing ideas for global health in neurological and psychiatric domains.
