Two Internship Opportunities with the INS
We have two great opportunities for students to serve as INS interns. One intern will assist with the planning and execution of the 2019 INS Annual Meeting. Our other internship will involve general communication and marketing activities for the Society beginning February 2019.

Apply today, or share this opportunity with your students. Applications for both positions are due February 15.
Neuroethics Education Resources
The University of Pennsylvania's Center for Neuroscience & Society and the Franklin Institute have a new website called "Your Brain" which features curriculum for a high school course on “ Neuroscience and Society.” The course includes multimedia resources and activities on neuroscience and its intersections with law, education, mental health, addiction, and wellbeing.
If you have a neuroethics curriculum or education resource for students at any level, we encourage you to recommend them for our education resources page.
Membership Survey
Please take a few minutes to provide your input on a range of topics addressed in our membership survey. We would appreciate your insights on emerging neuroethics issues, preferred event formats, ways to improve member benefits, and many other areas. Your responses will especially help INS leadership and committees organize and plan future annual meetings. Thank you sharing your perspective.

ACD BRAIN 2.0 Working Group Neuroethics Subgroup Workshop
January 23, 2019
The ACD Working Group on BRAIN 2.0 Neuroethics Subgroup was formed to develop a Neuroethics Roadmap for the NIH BRAIN Initiative; review priority areas identified in the BRAIN 2025 Strategic Plan, incorporating updates from the broader BRAIN 2.0 Working Group, and characterize the neuroethics implications that may arise as BRAIN Initiative investments produce new tool/neurotechnologies. This will be a public workshop to hear perspectives on the ethical issues posed by current and future neuroscience research.

Re-Constructing Brains in the Lab to Revolutionize Neuroscience
The Center for Ethics in Science and Technology
February 6, 2019; San Diego, CA, USA
Cerebral organoids, also known as mini-brains, are tridimensional self-organized structures derived from stem cells that resemble the early stages of the human embryonic brain. Dr. Muotri will explain how mini brains are generated and how this strategy can create novel therapeutic insights on neurogenetic disorders, such as autism. Limitations and ethical concerns surrounding this exciting technology will be discussed.
