What is neuroscience and society? Is it the same as neuroethics, bioethics, or science and technology studies? Does my work fit?

Neuroscience and society is the multidisciplinary study of how neuroscience informs and reflects society, and practical work to put these ideas into action. Neuroscience and society includes fields where neuroscience interfaces with the world, such as ethics, law, humanities, medicine, arts, social sciences, policy, education, journalism, and public engagement. This list is meant to be illustrative, not exhaustive. Other disciplines may fall within the purview of neuroscience and society.

While neuroscience and society is not the same as neuroethics, bioethics, or science and technology studies, there are areas of overlap.
