The Brain and the Law

Here's a talk I delivered at the Royal Society for the Arts in London, entitled "The Brain and the Law".

Interested in the intersection of the brain and the legal system?  I direct Baylor College of Medicine's Initiative on Neuroscience and Law, which addresses how modern neuroscience will change our view of criminal behavior, punishment, rehabilitation, incentive structuring, and policy making.  For readings and more information, please see NeuLaw.org.
