TY  - JOUR
AB - Mistakes are inevitable in healthcare and surgeons traditionally aim to avoid these through training and surgical technology. Emerging neuroenhancement techniques have demonstrated significant gains in cognitive and motor domains, which could offset the errors seen in surgical practice. We discuss neurostimulation as a neuro-enhancing tool for surgeons and the surrounding ethical issues of its application in healthcare.
