Activity Description

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders was established in 2006 to bring together leaders from government, industry, academia, and disease advocacy organizations, as well as other interested parties. The Forum meets several times a year and provides its members with a structured, neutral venue for exchanging information, ideas, and differing perspectives. At its meetings, the Forum examines significant—and sometimes contentious—issues concerning scientific needs and opportunities, priority setting, and policies related to neuroscience and nervous system disorders research; the development, regulation, and use of interventions for the nervous system; and related ethical, legal, and social implications. The Forum also sponsors workshops for its members and the public on emerging issues, key challenges in the field, and other matters deserving scrutiny.
