B. Neurolaw Media & News Clippings
- Can neuroscience predict how likely someone is to commit another crime? To read more about neuroprediction see Andrew R. Calderon, Marshall Project (Aug. 14, 2018). ,
- “Neurolaw” is becoming increasingly important in the courtroom, but how effective are the current methods of bringing brain science to the bench? For a youthful video that may be used to start of one of your classes see , SEEKER (July 11, 2018).
C. Conferences & Speaker Series
1. Ethics, Law, and Technology Conference: Neuroscience & Society is hosting a conference that will investigate the ethical, clinical, legal, and societal implications of a wide range of moral technologies that target factors beyond, as well as within, the brain, in order to observe, explain, and influence human thought and behavior. The conference is on August 24–25, 2018 in Sydney, Australia. Click for more information.
2. Workshop on The Adolescent Brain: Laurence Steinberg is coordinating this workshop addressing various aspects of the adolescent brain including developmental neuroscience, social risk, social-affective engagement, peer effects on risk-taking, transitioning from childhood into adolescence, and neuroscience-based interventions. The workshop takes place September 28th through October 3rd at the Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies in Isola di San Servolo, Venice. Click for more information.
D. Other Items of Interest
Using Current Stimulation to Reduce Aggression:
Shubham Sharma, Int’l Bus. Time(July 4, 2018).,
As the number of cases related to violence, physical, and sexual assault continues to rise around the globe, an international team of researchers has shown there might be a “neuroscientific” answer to the problem — zapping the brain with electric current.

E. Looking for Speakers & Collaborators
From the Georgia Institute of Technology :
The Neuroscience Club at Georgia Tech is looking for guest speakers with careers in law that incorporate Neuroscience or Psychology into their fields of study. We are interested in the different fields that studying Neuroscience in undergrad can lead to and law is one that many students are not aware of. Judges, legal scholars, or anything in between are invited to speak to college students about how Neuroscience influences their field. Guest speakers may come to the Georgia Tech campus on the day they choose, September 24, October 22, November 5, or November 19, and give a half an hour to 40-minute power point presentation about what they do and how Neuroscience plays a role in it. Meetings begin at 6:30 pm. To learn more information please contact Priyanka Dave at .
From Law Professor Peter Huang :
I am interested in collaborating on a longitudinal study to collect and analyze brain structure and function data of law students just before, during, and just after law school. Our hypothesis is that law students experience chronic stress in law school, which impairs character development, (ethical) decision-making, learning, information processing, and wellbeing. Interventions that shift the focus from personal performance goals and towards feeling compassion and empathy could reverse this trend, promoting resilience and ethical, prosocial behavior. Possible interventions include mindfulness and compassion meditation. Please email , 55(1) Hous. L. Rev. 63–154 (2017)if you are interested. See pages 147–48 of this reprint for more details:
