The Center for Science and Law has four prongs:
₪ Development of new technologies: The Center fuels new experiments leveraging our scientists' areas of expertise—for example, neuroimaging for the prediction of recidivism, and real-time brain feedback for rehabilitation. Individual projects are expected to generate new funding from the NSF, NIJ, and private foundations.
₪ Local and national outreach: We host several-hundred person conferences of experts in law, policy and neurobiology. Dr. David Eagleman, the director of the Center, speaks regularly to conclaves of judges and lawyers at the state at federal levels.
₪ Teaching: Participants include graduate, medical and law students, as well as professional lawyers, physicians, and clinical psychologists. More info coming soon.
₪ Fellowships: We fund year-long fellowship positions for the detailed study of issues at the interface of brain and law. These fellowships generate experiments at the law/neuroscience interface that directly inform new policy.
