Professor Michael Saks participated in a panel discussion on neuroscientific evidence at a symposium held on Friday, Feb. 27, at Stanford Law School.
The symposium, Neuroscience and the Courts: The Implications of Advances in Neurotechnology, was presented by the Stanford Technology Law Review. It posed questions such as: How will courts use neuroscience in sexual predator and death penalty cases? What can neuroscience offer the courts that traditional social science cannot? Can neuroimaging data enhance understandings of criminal responsibility?
