MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Law and Neuroscience | Vanderbilt University

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

The Law and Neuroscience Project… The Research Network on Law and Neuroscience, supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, addresses a focused set of closely-related problems at the intersection of neuroscience and criminal justice: 1) determining the law-relevant mental states of defendants and witnesses; 2) assessing a defendant’s capacity for self-regulating his behavior; and 3) assessing whether, and if so how, neuroscientific evidence should be admitted and evaluated in individual cases.

Neuroscience and the Law

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond
New discoveries in neuroscience intersect with law making, criminal punishment, and the development of new rehabilitative strategies. A new understanding of the neurobiology of behavior is emerging. Societies can increasingly leverage this base of scientific information to design modern, evidence-based policy. Questions at the interface of law and neuroscience include: (a) Is it a legitimate defense to claim that a tumor or a brain injury mitigates a crime?; (b) How do the brains of minors differ from adult brains in their capacity for decision-making and impulse control?; (c) Can neuroscience inform sentencing guidelines by offering better prediction of recidivism?; (d) Can new brain imaging technologies be leveraged for new methods of rehabilitation?; (e) Who should have access to information about our brains?; and (f) How should juries assess culpability when most behaviors are driven by unconscious systems of the brain?

A cognitive neuroscience framework for understanding causal reasoning and the law.

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond
Over the past couple of decades, there have been great developments in the fields of psychology and cognitive neuroscience that have allowed the advancement of our understanding of how people make judgements about causality in several domains. We provide a review of some of the contemporary psychological models of causal thinking that are directly relevant to legal reasoning. In addition, we cover some exciting new research using advanced neuroimaging techniques that have helped to uncover the underlying neural signatures of complex causal reasoning. Through the use of functional imaging, we provide a first-hand look at how the brain responds to evidence that is either consistent or inconsistent with one’s beliefs and expectations. Based on the data covered in this review, we propose some ideas for how the effectiveness of causal reasoning, especially as it pertains to legal decision-making, may be facilitated.

Cosa ci aspetta nel 2012: social media e tendenze per il prossimo anno

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Si avvicina la fine dell’anno e si comincia a ragionare su cosa ci aspetterà nel 2012: non fa eccezione il mondo dei social media, che il prossimo anno potrebbe consacrarsi come strumento decisivo per le aziende dopo un 2011 pieno di novità. Beverly Macy, nel suo post, parla apertamente di Global Social Brain: la social sfera è come una sorta di grande cervello globale i cui pensieri sono generati da tutti i contenuti prodotti dagli utenti all’interno dei social network.

Art and the Limits of Neuroscience

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Why does art move us? Why does it matter? The answers are not likely to be found by studying the brain.
