Neuroscience and the law: concerns, questions and promises


Mahlmann, Matthias (2011). Neuroscience and the law: concerns, questions and promises. 37(2):44-47.

Abstract

In recent years there has been increasing interest in the relation of neuroscience and the law. Far reaching questions are asked about the forensic use of neuroscientific insights. Fundamental conceptions of the law have been questioned as well in the light of what appears to be known in cognitive science. Debates have focused on freedom and responsibility but are in no way limited to these issues. The article explores what appear to be central topics in this field.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
