Brief review of current situation in Neuroscience and Law
The Brain and The Law By David Eagleman
An overview of neuroscience in application to ethics and law. It covers a lot of subjects from Phineas Gage and Charles Whitman to people brain life in comas. Ways that the brain controls behaviour, issues of responsibility and accountability in the legal system, decision making, recidivism and rehabilitation, predicting violence, the hype and reality of fMRI lie detectors. Interesting part about new clinical trial that’s testing neurofeedback for controlling cravings and its uses for smokers and killers.
