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.
