The brain-mind quiddity: ethical issues in the use of human brain tissue for therapeutic and scientific purposes
Journal of Medical Ethics 24 (2):118-122 (1998)
The use of human brain tissue in neuroscience research is increasing. Recent developments include transplanting neural tissue, growing or maintaining neural tissue in laboratories and using surgically removed tissue for experimentation. Also, it is likely that in the future there will be attempts at partial or complete brain transplants. A discussion of the ethical issues of using human brain tissue for research and brain transplantation has been organized around nine broadly defined topic areas. Criteria for human brain tissue transplantation and laboratory use of brain tissue are proposed
