Perspectives on engaging the public in the ethics of emerging biotechnologies: from salmon to biobanks to neuroethics
Secko, David M.
Accountability in Research 2008 October-December; 15(4): 283-302
In anticipation of increasing interest in public engagement, this article seeks to expand the current discussion in the neuroethics literature concerning what public engagement on issues related to neuroscience might entail and how they could be envisioned. It notes that the small amount of available neuroethics literature related to public engagement has principally discussed only communication/education or made calls for dialogue without exploring what this might entail on a practical level. The article links across three seemingly disparate examples salmon, biobanks, and neuroethics to consider and clarify the need for public engagement in neuroscience.
