About this book

Behavioral neuroscience encompasses the disciplines of neurobiology and psychology to study mechanisms of behavior. This volume provides a contemporary overview of the current state of how ethics informs behavioral neuroscience research. There is dual emphasis on ethical challenges in experimental animal approaches and in clinical and nonclinical research involving human participants.

Reviews

“This is an excellent, thorough collection of essays on ethical issues in behavioral neuroscience, with a significant portion of the book dedicated to the often neglected ethical issues related to behavioral neuroscience research in animals. … This is intended primarily for behavioral neuroscientists and neuroethicists, animal science researchers and ethicists, as well as scholars interested in this topic.” (Kathrine Bendtsen, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2015)
