Laura Y. Cabrera

Assistant Professor of Neuroethics, Michigan State University

Laura Cabrera's interests focus on the ethical and societal implications of neurotechnology and neuroscientific advances. She has been working on projects that explore the media coverage and the attitudes of the general public toward pharmacological and novel neurosurgical interventions for the treatment of psychiatric disorders. She has also worked on the public perceptions towards the use of different modalities of neuromodifiers for enhancement purposes, as well as their normative implications.

Her current work also focuses on the ethical and social implications of environmental changes for brain and mental health.
