Description

The study of meditation has become a popular niche of research in the neurosciences. Effects of meditation on healthy aging are currently investi- gated in the Silver Santé Study. I joined the clinical trial as a Socio-Technical Integration Researcher to trace how ethics unfold in daily work practices. Participant observation supported mapping everyday decision-making in a collaborative learning process with the research team. The affective dimension of collaboration turned out to be a resource for both studying ethics and enhancing capacities for ethical reflection in the team.
