Neurolaw: A New Frontier – Corpus Curiosum (Series II)
What would a future look like in which neuroscience is incorporated into our legal system? As our knowledge of the human brain grows, so do the ways we can apply neuroscience to different facets of research and society. Neurolaw aims to use our understanding of the brain to create more equitable policies and to advance justice. Rapid technological and scientific achievements pave the way for this growing interdisciplinary field. This talk by Mikayla Dilbeck will introduce the ways neurolaw has started to influence policy, neuroethics, and possibilities for the future.
The Corpus Curiosum series was produced with the support of FENS Committee for Higher Education and Training (CHET)
