Professor of Religious Studies Heidi M. Ravven commented on a panel discussion, “Applying the Neuroscience of Morality,” during a conference held March 30 - April 1 at New York University’s Center for Bioethics.  The conference, The Moral Brain, was organized by the NYU Center for Bioethics, the Duke Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Yale Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics, and the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies. 

 

The conference had two parts: “The Significance of Neuroscience for Morality: Lessons from a Decade of Research” and “Can Moral Behavior be Improved or Enhanced?”  Ravven raised issues about the scope of the moral agent in moral action and the nature of the self in moral decision-making.
