Reflexiones desde el derecho al mejoramiento neural farmacológico (Neuroenhancement)

María Isabel Cornejo Plaza

Resumen

En este texto se reflexiona acerca de las interfaces existentes entre una práctica novedosa denominada mejoramiento neural farmacológico en relación con las neurociencias, neuroética y neuroderecho. Describe los efectos que esta práctica produce en la cognición de sujetos sanos y, cómo su consumo está siendo problematizado por la literatura especializada, a varios niveles. La literatura destaca los aspectos éticos, de jus-ticia distributiva y los jurídicos en las distintas fuentes del derecho, tanto a nivel funcional como conceptual.

Palabras clave
