I can speak a bit for the "no" camp. I work in medical imaging, so not neuroscience per se, but I know quite a few neuroscientists. Most of them are now working in Python, MATLAB and/or C++. IMO the (impassable?) barrier to using Go will be the existing infrastructure/libraries for those three languages. Even though you could use cgo... in my experience, most neuroscientists aren't that into fixing their tools. They'd rather be working on their models.

(I could easily stand to be corrected. On a similar note, I hope Julia replaces MATLAB for a lot of science/engineering.)
