Focus Group with students
What do students think about neuro-enhancement? What are their main interests and concerns when discussing the topic?
Institute of Technology Assessment (ITA) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OEAW)
The approach of using small deliberative events allows for an in-depth discussion on a variety of topics concerning NE. It enables students to openly discuss their views on neuro-enhancement and to become familiar with technical or pharmaceutical details as well as societal or individual consequences.
Focus groups offer the opportunity for comprehensive discussion, thus reducing the fear of contact with unfamiliar topics.
