Neuroscience has become an area of increasing interest to many of us. Owen Jones, one of the Editors of Law and Neuroscience, was the keynote speaker at the American Society of Trial Consultants Annual Conference in Nashville this year. This is one of the resources he pointed out during his presentation and it is a very thorough information source. It’s also our favorite thing for May, 2015.
http://bioethics.gov (the Bioethics Commission) is an advisory panel of the nation’s leaders in medicine, science, ethics, religion, law, and engineering. The Bioethics Commission advises the President on bioethical issues arising from advances in biomedicine and related areas of science and technology. The Bioethics Commission seeks to identify and promote policies and practices that ensure scientific research, health care delivery, and technological innovation are conducted in a socially and ethically responsible manner.
We’ll give credit for this find to Owen Jones which also gives us a chance to highlight his own pretty fabulous website on all things neurolaw.
