Meeting of Minds

Britons to set boundaries of brain research following six-month international consultation

A panel of Britons who have spent the last six months helping to shape the future of brain science - in the most important public consultation on neuroscience to date - will present their recommendations to the British government on Monday 17 October 2005.

The Meeting of Minds consultation is the biggest international public consultation on brain science ever seen and involves citizens from nine European countries.

The fourteen strong British panel were selected by a random post-code lottery to represent the UK. The panel members who span the entire British Isles - from Somerset to the Shetland Islands - have spent months discussing and debating a range of issues relating to how new-found knowledge on the brain should be used, such as enhancing, controlling and scanning brains. The results will help set new boundaries of research across the EU.

On the weekend of 15-16 October, they will probe a range of experts including scientists, ethicists, patient groups and government officials before a public audience to help conclude their report.

The UK arm of the Meeting of Minds consultation has been organised by the Dana Centre in London - the Science Museum’s annex for adults to discuss contemporary science.
