On March 4, 2011, the Denver University Law Review hosted a symposium to discuss recent advances in neuroscientific techniques and methods that offer both promise and pitfalls for law. This symposium provided insight into current neuroscientific capabilities, discussed several trends, and highlighted recent and forthcoming developments.
As a follow-up to our symposium, many of our speakers agreed to continue the conversation by posting their powerpoint presentations and articles on our online supplement.
