Abstract
There is increasing pressure for neuroscientists to communicate their research and the societal implications of their findings to the public. Communicating science is challenging, and the transformation of communication by digital and interactive media increases the complexity of the challenge. To facilitate dialogue with the public in this new media landscape, we suggest three courses of action for the neuroscience community: a cultural shift that explicitly recognizes and rewards public outreach, the identification and development of neuroscience communication experts, and ongoing empirical research on the public communication of neuroscience.

Default

the only one I recognize is Arthur Caplan, the bioethicist from U Penn - he's the guy who represented Amgen's point of view on the 60 Minutes GDNF show. He is also often used as an expert on CNN, etc.

Do you have access to the whole article? What does it say?

Default Looks interesting

This looks really interesting though I don't think it's a reference to us...hard to tell since once again, we're locked out because full-text access is cost prohibitive to us outside the field.

I did run across this interesting looking conference of neuroscientists convening in June of this year. - Laura

http://www.bitlifesciences.com/neurotalk2010/

Welcome to BIT' 1st World Congress of (NeuroTalk 2010)
The mission of this congress is to initiate a sustainable platform for exchanging up-to-the-minute upstream and downstream achievements, industrial needs and research opportunities of Neurosciences fields in Asia Pacific Rim, to promote neuroscience, increase communication and facilitate collaboration between investigators throughout the world. Here, neuroscientists, neurologists and neurosurgeons will bring us the extraordinary advances on the treatment of injuries and illnesses affecting the brain, spine and nervous system. This focused event pays tribute to the growing significance of neurosciences, we cordially welcome you to join us and witness the advances in neurosciences together!

Default neurotalk

carey, will attempt to obtain the full text. my supplier no longer has reliable access. sad to know one of the authors represented Amgen. perhaps he is expiating his sins? more likely he remains on their payroll. Maybe he is a pharma mole. I have a very active imagination. madelyn
