Transcript, Meeting 17, Session 2

DR. WAGNER:   Let me ask our guests to come forward, Professor Dresser and Drs. Graf, Wright, and Feldman, if you could come forward to the table here while we get underway. Commissioners, I'm imagining that in order that we can hear fully from all of our guests this morning, we may have a short lunch this afternoon, and that will be just fine.

Transcript, Meeting 16 Session 7 and Closing Remarks

DR. GUTMANN:  We're going to get started, and we're going to have the hard stop at noon.

This is a time where we're going to spend an hour deliberating a potential first report in response to President Obama's charge.  We will ultimately have a multi-part report, but because there is a part of our report that's about the timely integration of ethics into neuroscience, we thought that we should address that in a timely fashion.

Transcript, Meeting 16 Session 5 and Closing Remarks

DR. GUTMANN: So I’d like to start off with a question for each of our terrific speakers to answer. It's purposely requiring you to be selective and pick one important initiative or step that the Bioethics Commission can recommend for effectively integrating ethics into the practice of neuroscience. This is a recommendation we're almost certainly to make.

VICE CHAIR WAGNER:  And once I get my glasses on, I can do my job.  Who are we missing?  We'll wait for Raju and Chris; they'll show up soon.  So let me go ahead and do the introductions, anyway.

We're turning now in this section to the topic that was mentioned earlier, communications and neuroscience research by scientists and journalists.  We've got quite a panel.  I've had a chance to chat with several of them.  And so we look forward to hearing from all of you.
