    arrow-rightVisible Solutions: How Neuroimaging Helps Law Re-envision Pain

    Visible Solutions: How Neuroimaging Helps Law Re-envision Pain
    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. This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is required. June 30, 8:00am-5:00pm, Wasserstein Hall, Milstein West A, Harvard Law School.
