    This program will examine cutting edge and controversial linkages between law and neuroscience. It aims to highlight the neuroscientific basis for behavior patterns with legal implications, including how neuroscience intersects with civil law, criminal law, evidentiary rules, memory bias and enhancement, lie and deception detection, adolescent brains, and juvenile law. The program will look critically at efforts to use neuroimaging in court in connection with predictions of dangerousness and predispositions towards mental illness and substance abuse, as well as efforts to identify neurobiological influences on the brain.
