The ethics of psychedelic research in disorders of consciousness.

The ethics of psychedelic research in disorders of consciousness.

Abstract

This article provides an ethical analysis of psychedelic research involving disorders of consciousness patients. We apply two internationally accepted approaches for analyzing the ethics of human research, the Value-Validity Framework and Component Analysis, to a research program recently proposed by Scott and Carhart-Harris. We focus on Scott and Carhart-Harris’s proposal, but the ethical frameworks outlined are applicable to other novel research protocols in the science of consciousness.
