  • Neuroscience, Prediction, and Law

    Experts discuss the developing role of neuroscience in the legal system, the power and limitations of neuroscience as an to aid legal decision-making, and some of the implications.


    Dr. Kent Kiehl recently co-authored a study correlating levels of brain activity in the anterior cingulate cortex with the likelihood that a criminal will commit a new crime after being released from jail. This is a powerful predictive tool, but how should it be used? More broadly, how should the legal system regard and respond to neuroscience, which conceptualizes behavior in terms removed from personal agency? Dr. Kiehl and Professor Owen Jones, Director of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Law and Neuroscience, share their insights on these and other questions.
