Transcript, Meeting 16 Session 4

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.

Transcript, Meeting 16 Session 2

VICE CHAIR WAGNER:  Happy to do that.  Thanks for that wrap‑up.

I will say I hope we figure out ways to move from an attitude of ethics obligation to ethics integration, and of course, that segues to our other working group, Applications and Implications Working Group.

Amy mentioned earlier that in the President's charge there was a specific quote that we should focus also on, and I quote, "the ethical dilemmas that may be raised by the applications of neuroscience research findings."

Anita, do you want to fill us in where that group is?

Transcript, Meeting 15 Session 3

DR. WAGNER: You know, we're waiting for Dan. But I think since, what I am essentially doing in the beginning of this is reading into the record the introductions of our speakers, Dan has seen this in the briefing material. So why don't we go ahead.

Transcript, Meeting 14 Session 1

DR. GUTMANN:  Welcome everybody.  It is my great pleasure to welcome members o the Commission and the Commission's staff to the University of Pennsylvania. This is the second meeting we've had here, and this is the first meeting, however, we had in the Smilow Center because when this Commission began several years ago the Smilow Center didn't exist.

And it not only exists, but it is fully occupied, and it is occupied with work that is obviously relevant to the subject of our Commission.

Transcript, Meeting 14 Session 8

DR. GUTMANN: Thank you for coming together. This is our roundtable even though it's a square table. It is a table that brings together a group of people who really represent a wide range of what this Commission is going to grapple with as we move forward on the BRAIN Initiative. And I'd like to simply start off the roundtable with a question that I often ask at our roundtable.
