Arleen Salles

Senior Researcher

Arleen Salles is a Senior Researcher in CRB’s neuroethics team. She is the  Director of the Neuroethics Program at CIF (Centro de Investigaciones Filosoficas) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is also a task leader and research collaborator in the Ethics and Society subproject (SP12) of the EU-flagship Human Brain Project and SP12’s  Communications Officer. Salles received her M.A and Ph.D in philosophy from SUNY Buffalo, USA.

Her research interests range from issues in moral philosophy (such as  the connection between emotional rationality and intentionality, and the status of aversive emotions like disgust), to bioethics (for example,  the ethical issues raised by cultural, ethnic, and gender differences in the health care context) and neuroethics (the normative relevance of neuroscientific findings and privacy concerns raised by neuro-imaging, among others). She is currently working on a conceptual analysis of human identity and the self, and the impact that some neuroscientific findings could have on what it means to be human.

Neuroethics & Philosophy of the Brain

The CRB neuroethics research team is an international, multi-disciplinary group. Our backgrounds allow us to approach these issues from theoretical, philosophical, social, bio-political and clinical perspectives. We collaborate closely with neuroscientists to understand the ethical and philosophical questions that neuroscience brings. In this report, we provide a summary of our research. The report was updated in November 2016.
