In last years, neurocognitive enhancement represents a field of great interest and a debated topic in literature. The neuroenhancement concerns the use of different neuroscientific methods that increase individuals’ cognitive performance operating on the brain and the nervous system. Recent studies have indeed highlighted how neuroscientific techniques could improve specific functions such as attention, perception, and memory in clinical and experimental contexts. The development of new and different techniques of neurocognitive enhancement leads to the necessity to investigate the ethical and legal implications related to the use of these tools for the enhancement of mental and physical functions. In particular, this work highlights the ethical and moral implications of the use of neurocognitive tools and techniques based on awareness practices and supported by the use of a wearable device. This paper, therefore, offers an overview of the criticalities and benefits of the use of neurocognitive enhancement techniques on individuals and society, highlighting particularly the use of neurocognitive enhancement within professional contexts in the improvement of organizations effectiveness, coordination, and productivity
