Professor Nita Farahany, Professor of Law & Philosophy at Duke Law School, presents several of the more salient issues that arise from the intersection of law and neuroscience. Recent scientific progress has dramatically advanced our understanding of the biological, neurological and environmental contributions to normal and deviant human behavior. Behavioral scientists have moved beyond purely descriptive scientific accounts to predictive ones by linking genetic and neurological variations to behavioral variations in the population. Dr. Farahany discusses the first comprehensive empirical study on the use of neuroscience in the U.S. criminal justice system. https://neuroscience.stanford.edu Part of the Inaugural Symposium of Stanford Neurosciences Institute recorded on October 10, 2014.
