It's time for Neuroethics to make some arrests. Katherine Bassil, an upcoming neuroscientist and neuroethics enthusiast, has always tried to advocate for bridging the fields of neuroscience and neuroethics together. The absence of similar enterprises from the community makes it even more difficult for Katherine to achieve her goal. Join Katherine on her mission to show that being a neuroscientist and Neuroethics advocate, is the way for responsible brain innovation.
The Neuroethics Police Podcast brings you interviews with experts in the field, where Neuroethics will question the science.
Prof. dr. David Roef & Dr. Antonia Waltermann join host Katherine Bassil in discussion on neurolaw. In the first part of this episode, we discuss the involvement of neuroscience in the courtroom.

Are you held accountable if you were involved in a car accident, knowing you were at higher risk of having a seizure? Find out more details on episode 6 of the Neuroethics Police podcast!
Neuroscience PhD candidates Clara Snijders, Jackson Boonstra, Megan Sieg and Masters student Ieva Gembutaite joined the Neuroethics Police in an open discussion. In this episode, several ethical and societal implications were discussed concerning recent neuroscience research, including keeping pig brains "alive", human brain organoids, brain-computer interfaces (or BCI), artificial intelligence (or AI) and last but not least human head transplants. During this open discussion the ethical and societal implications of similar research were raised with more questions asked than answered. What neuroscience research keeps you awake at night?
Assistant Professor Dorothee Horstkötter discusses the neuroethics of forensic psychology and psychiatry focusing on her previous experience with juvenile delinquents in the Netherlands. With a background in practical philosophy and applied bioethics, Dr. Dorothee highlights the problematic implications of forensic psychology and psychiatry.
