Jones on The Future of Law and Neuroscience

Owen D. Jones (Vanderbilt University - Law School & Dept. of Biological Sciences) has posted The Future of Law and Neuroscience (63 William & Mary L. Rev. 1317 (2022) (Symposium Issue: The Future of Law and Neuroscience)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
I was asked to speculate about where the field of Law & Neuroscience may be ten years from now. In that spirit (and while recognizing that the future rarely complies with our predictions) I attempt here some extrapolations. I first consider potential advances in the technologies for monitoring and manipulating brain states, the techniques for analyzing brain data, and the efforts to further integrate relevant fields. I then consider potential neurolaw developments relevant to: (1) detecting things law cares about; (2) individualizing developmental states and brain states; (3) evidence-based legal reforms; (4) legal decision-making; and (5) brain-brain interfaces.
