    DBS and Autonomy: Clarifying the Role of Theoretical Neuroethics
    with Gabriel Lázaro-Muñoz
    Neuroethics 1-11. forthcoming.
    In this article, we sketch how theoretical neuroethics can clarify the concept of autonomy. We hope that this can both serve as a model for the conceptual clarification of other components of PIAAAS and contribute to the development of the empirical measures that Gilbert and colleagues [1] propose.

    What is a Medical Information Commons?
    with Juli M. Bollinger, Mary A. Majumder, Erika Versalovic, Angela G. Villanueva, Rebecca L. Hsu, Amy L. McGuire, and Robert Cook-Deegan
    Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 47 (1): 41-50. 2019.
    A 2011 National Academies of Sciences report called for an “Information Commons” and a “Knowledge Network” to revolutionize biomedical research and clinical care. We interviewed 41 expert stakeholders to examine governance, access, data collection, and privacy in the context of a medical information commons. Stakeholders' attitudes about MICs align with the NAS vision of an Information Commons; however, differences of opinion regarding clinical use and access warrant further research to explore …Read more

Though Spinoza maintains that individuals necessarily aim to pr…Read more
