Law and Neuroscience Resource

The MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Law and Neuroscience is a centralized location where you can find publications, cases, news articles, training information and other resources on the intersection of law and neuroscience. The Network has a listserve that you can sign up for here. There is also a Law and Neuroscience Blog which provides an online forum for discussion of current research and court cases by members of the Research Network, other researchers and the public.

The Network maintains a searchable law and neuroscience bibliography, which now includes over 700 items.

According to a press release, research conducted by the program will include brain imaging and other studies to examine detecting deception, detecting recognition, cognitive and brain development in adolescents, and when neuroscience evidence (such as fMRI brain scans) should and should not be admissible in court.
