In addition to the widely adopted and widespread pharmacological treatments for neuroenhancement, in the last decade there have emerged several nonpharmacological treatments. These methods treat the brain with a magnetic field or an electrical current and induce neuromodulatory and/or neurostimulatory effects.In addition to safety, several other ethical issues include issues of implicit and explicit coercion, value systems, fairness and hard work, possible changes in users’ identity and personality.The real question is not whether we can stop the use of these devices, but whether they are taking us in an unexpected direction with unanticipated consequences.
