Visible Solutions: How Neuroimaging Helps Law Re-envision Pain
Wasserstein Hall, Milstein West A
Harvard Law School, 1585 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA
Tue., June 30, 2015



Can brain imaging be a pain-o-meter that tells courts when a person is in pain? Can fMRI help us discern whether intractable chronic pain is all in your head or all in the brain or will it require us to reconsider that distinction? Leading neuroscientists, legal scholars, and bioethicists will debate standards and limits on how the law can use brain science to get smarter about a subject that touches everyone.

The full agenda will be announced on the website in the coming weeks.

Gazette Classification:Conferences, Health Sciences, Law, Science
Organization/Sponsor:This event is part of the Project on Law and Applied Neuroscience, a collaboration between the Center for Law, Brain & Behavior at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School. Cosponsored by the Center for Bioethics at Harvard Medical School, and with support from the Oswald DeN. Cammann Fund.
