Anywhere near Arizona in a couple of weeks? Arizona State University is running a one day conference on Friday, April 13, entitled The Law and Ethics of Brain Scanning: Coming soon to a courtroom near you? The conference is free but you must pre-register.
The conference has four consecutive sessions, on Brain Scanning Technologies; Brain Scanning in the Courts; Specific Applications of Brain Scanning Technologies; and Ethical Aspects of Brain Scanning.
The full line-up of speakers and talks is here. Most of the day looks like being interesting from but from a deception point of view, two particular presentations stand out:
Brain Scanning and Lie Detection from Daniel Langleben, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
Legal Admissibility of Neurological Lie Detection Evidence – Archie A. Alexander, Health Law & Policy Institute, University of Houston Law Center
