Meeting of the Minds: European Citizens' Deliberate on Brain Science

Over the course of 2005, 126 citizens from countries such as Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, and the UK, met up a handful of times within their own country and twice with citizens from other countries in order to discuss “the ethical, social, and legal implications of brain science policy and technology.” After these meetings, the citizens turned in a summary of their findings in January of 2006 to the European Parliament.
