Transcript, Meeting 18, Session 5 and Closing Remarks

DR. GUTMANN: We are blessed to have a great group of people presenting with expertise that is wide ranging in neuroscience, research, the ethics of neuroscience research and the ethics of the potential applications of the results of this research. And this is a unique opportunity for us as a Commission to hear from you. So give us one recommendation that you would like to see us, what we do in our report, whether it be what you want to make sure we attend to, something you think is really important for us to observe in the report.

DR. WAGNER:  And I think we move on without a break at this point.  So let me ask Dr. Lin and Dr. McGinn to come forward.  They are going to help advise us and help us discuss frameworks for evaluating ethical and societal issues raised by emerging technologies.  So we are still talking about DSLRs, I guess, in a sense.
