The Hall Center for Law and Health will present, "Will Neuroscience Redefine Mental Injury," from 8 a.m. to noon Friday, Oct. 4, at the IU McKinney School of Law, Wynne Courtroom and Atrium, Inlow Hall.
Legal systems have traditionally treated physical and mental injuries differently. Advances in neuroscience provide insights that challenge this dichotomy. This multidisciplinary half-day conference will examine some of the evolving technologies used to demonstrate mental injury and explore the potential impact of this neuroscientific data in legal decision making.
Panel discussion topics include "Neuroimaging in Emotional and Physical Trauma" and "Neuroscience and Civil Law." Panel participates include Thomas W. McAllister, M.D., Albert E. Sterne Professor and Chair of Psychiatry at the IU School of Medicine. A complete agenda is online.
Parking is available for a nominal fee at the campus Gateway Garage, located on the corner of Michigan and California streets, or the Natatorium Garage, two blocks west of the law school.
An application for CME credit for physicians has been submitted.
