A collection of snippets from the inter webs on NeuroLaw:
- Hastings Law Journal has a collection of articles covering “Law & Policy of the Developing Brain: Neuroscience from Womb to Death”
- An article in Neuroethics discusses the use of neuroscience and genetics within the criminal law context. It has a particular focus on the Stefania Albertani case – which I had discussed in my old blog.
- A post over at Neuroethics and Law Blog discusses the relevance of neuroscience to criminal law, when compared to ‘folk psychology’.
The Royal Society has released its report on the application of neuroscience in a military and law enforcement context. The report focuses on two specific applications: (1) performance enhancement of military/police personnel and (2) performance degradation of perceived enemies. Of particular personal interest was Part 3 which outlines how any new advance in weaponry is likely to be effected by existing customary, humanitarian and human rights law.
