Abstract Attempting to create new people, Transhumanism advocates deep structural changes in our concept of “human”.

Some of the most significant changes are related to the central nervous system and would be achieved through different technologies.

In this paper, we present an overview of this philosophical tendency and the concept of Neuroethics, thereby presenting the practical problems of those presumed neurological enhancements and analysing the ethical issues arising from these practices.

Finally, we discuss what we believe to be the fundamental cause of the problem: a misconception of Person.
