Summary Discussions on cognitive-neuroenhancement for healthy adults tend to focus on theoretical positions while concrete policy proposals and detailed models are scarce. Furthermore, discussions generally rely solely on data from the US or UK, while international perspectives are mostly non-existent. This volume fills the gap addressing the conceptual, ethical, social, and legal implications of cognitive enhancement from an international perspective
