POTUS Bioethics Commission Requesting Public Comments on Neuroscience Research

When the President launched the BRAIN Initiative in April 2013, he charged his Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues with exploring the ethical, legal, and societal implications raised by both this research initiative and other recent advances in neuroscience to ensure that this research progresses responsibly. The Commission is currently encouraging the public to weigh in on these topics and individuals interested in submitting comments should refer to the announcement recently posted in the Federal Register.
