David Eagleman – The law and neuroscience

“Dr David Eagleman considers some emerging questions relating to law and neuroscience, challenging long-held assumptions in criminality and punishment and predicting a radical new future for the legal system.”

I found it relatively interesting from minute 26 onwards, speaking about: What is a lie?Is lie detection really lie detection? Can you find out if someone is (“deep down”) a rascist? Then the question of “brain death”…
So: “Neuroscience touches the law.” In which ways will this happen in future court rooms…? – important to think about it.
