Cambridge Neuroscientists highlight the ethical issues in consenting vulnerable patients for neuroscience research
Many subjects cannot give fully informed consent to take part in research by virtue of age or mental capacity. Neuroscientific research raises a number of specific ethical issues, including issues of consent, potential benefits of research, management of incidental findings and the assignment of appropriate controls.
Professor John Pickard (left, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Cambridge) and colleagues discuss these issues in a recent article published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, 21st January, 2010.
