Significant progress has been made recently towards the development of technologies to assist people with neurological problems. Although scientists and engineers have the ability to develop these new neurotechnologies, some people question if and how researchers should proceed with this research.  Neuroethical concerns about this research include the type of information collected from the brain, access and safety of the information, and acceptance of the new technology from end-users and the public.
