3_5603421a46.jpgThe upcoming Law and Neuroscience conference will focus on how our growing understanding of the human brain and its impact on the legal system. Hosted by London School of Economics' Nikolas Rose the event will take place October 26-31 at the stunning Hotel Villa del Mare, Acquafredda di Maratea, Italy

Conference topics:
* legal and societal impact of recent neurobiological research on aggression, impulsivity and anti social conduct;
* impact of brain imaging technologies on the criminal justice system;
* impact of neuroscience on criminal responsibility, sentencing and punishment;
* evidence from current cases in criminal and civil law on the impact of neuroscience on witness credibility and the rules of evidence;
* problems, possibilities and perils of neuroscience based lie detection;
* implications of use of neuroscience for screening, risk prediction and preventive interventions;
* challenges to law and regulation in Europe posed by the neurosciences.

Looks like an important gathering that will surely influence the development of The Neuro Revolution. I'm going to see if I can get over there.
