Editor’s note: Dr. Vanessa Bentley successfully defending on September 4, 2015. Congrats, Dr. Bentley!
Vanessa Bentley (formerly Gorley) is a doctoral candidate at the University of Cincinnati. While in the doctoral program in Philosophy, she also completed a master’s in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Her research interests are in philosophy of science, philosophy of neuroscience, feminist epistemology, and neuroethics. Her interest in neuroethics has focused on neuroimaging research on sex/gender differences. Using two case studies in the neuroimaging of sex/gender differences, she has identified the many ways that the assumption of sex essentialism affects research and functions to limit scientific progress.

Welcome to our New Leaders page (Neuroethics Women Leaders)!
Neuroethics as a field is intellectually diverse including scholars from neuroscience, ethics, philosophy, psychology, law, policy, and many more disciplines. The field explores how neuroscience informs our social value systems (e.g., using brain pathology to determine culpability for crimes) as well as the neuroscientific basis of our value systems (e.g., neuroimaging of humans in moral decision making tasks).
