For any non-neuroscientists out there who are interested in learning what all the fuss is about, the Center for Neuroscience and Society at the University of Pennsylvania is holding its Neuroscience Boot Camp from August 1-11th. The camp is "a summer institute on neuroscience for professionals and graduate students in law, ethics, education and other fields", and works to give attendees a basic foundation in cognitiva and affective neuroscience, allowing them to be "informed consumers of neuroscience research". I firmly believe that programs like U Penn's are extremely important undertakings, especially as neuroscience continues to receive increasing exposure non-scientific communities. With the powerful neuroscience technologies being developed, it will become critical that non-neuroscientists will be able to differentiate between bogus claims, and legitimate research.
