Germani, Federico; Kellmeyer, Philipp; Wäscher, Sebastian; Biller-Andorno, Nikola (2021). Engineering Minds? Ethical Considerations on Biotechnological Approaches to Mental Health, Well-Being, and Human Flourishing. Trends in Biotechnology, 39(11):1111-1113.

Abstract

Our bodies can be designed and modified in accordance with our ideals of health and well-being. These increasingly targeted and personalized interventions will be more effective than current therapies. Here we review technologies to alter mood, and explore the ethics of bioengineering approaches to mental health.
