Neuroscience and the Law is a concise, jargon-free work examining how discoveries in neuroscience are influencing criminal and civil legal proceedings and what imminent and longer-term advances may affect the U.S. justice system. Part One of the book summarizes the deliberations at a meeting of 26 top neuroscientists, legal scholars, attorneys, and state and federal judges to sort out the issues. Part Two comprises the four formal commissioned papers that anchored these discussions:
“Free Will in the 21st Century,” by Michael S. Gazzaniga, and Megan S. Steven
“Neuroscience Developments and the Law,” by Laurence Tancredi
“Prediction, Litigation, Privacy and Property,” by Henry T. Greely
“New Neuroscience, Old Problems,” by Stephen J. Morse
