Thomas Zoëga Ramsøy (b. 1973 in Oslo, Norway) is a PhD in cognitive neuroscience / neuroimaging, originally trained in clinical and theoretical neuropsychology. His current work is at the Copenhagen Business School and Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance in Copenhagen, Denmark. His work focuses on a range of different topics, including:
- neuroeconomics — preferences and decision making
- imaging genetics
- development and ageing
- visual cognition
The resulting interest in neuroethics stems from a speculation about the findings from these areas. Concerns about practical issues and especially ethical, folk-psychological and philosophical consequences of brain imaging have given rise to this interest. Together with Martin Skov he writes on a book (in Danish) on neuroethics.
TZR is also the managing editor of the Science & Consciousness Review, an online forum/journal reviewing the scientific study of the mind.
