Morse on Neurohype

Stephen Morse (University of Pennsylvania Law School) has posted Neurohype and the Law: A Cautionary Tale (In The Dark Side of Imaging (Amir Raz & Robert Thibault eds, Elsevier Forthcoming)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This chapter suggests that for conceptual, empirical, and practical reasons, neuroscience in general and non-invasive brain imaging in particular are not likely to revolutionize the law and our conception of ourselves, but may make modest contributions to legal policy and case adjudication if the legal relevance of the science is properly understood.
