Neuroscience & Public Policy Seminar

The Future of Law and Neuroscience by Dr. Francis Shen, U. Minnesota Law School

Event Details

Friday, April 10, 2015
4 p.m.
Biotechnology Auditorium, Room 1111, Genetics-Biotechnology Center Building
Does law and neuroscience have a future? Lawyers and courts are now considering neuroscience research in both criminal and civil cases. Legislators are listening too, in areas such as mental health, addiction, dementia, prenatal care, crime and education. But will this momentum fade away or continue to build? This lecture will address these questions, and present a prediction about if, and when, we will see a "neurolaw revolution".
