SIGNAL Talk: Which of these brains is not like the others?

Details

February 25, 2013 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Room 85

 

David Faigman, Professor of Law at UC Hastings and Director of the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science & Health Policy, joins us for a talk on using neuroscience data in the law. Virtually all science is based on making inferences from group data, but the law needs to make decisions in particular cases. How does knowing that video games do (or do not) make children violent tell us about whether a particular child is violent because of videogames? This issue is particularly salient in the recent spate of US Supreme Court decisions on adolescent brain development and criminal responsibility.   

Please join us for dinner, drinks, and discussion.
