(Same as HRP211) This seminar examines legal, social, and ethical issues arising from advances in the biosciences. This year it will focus exclusively on neuroscience. It will examine how neuroscience will affect the law, and society, through improvements in predicting illnesses and behaviors, in "reading minds" through neuroimaging, in understanding responsibility and consciousness, in "treating" criminal behavior, and in cognitive enhancement. Students who have taken the Law and the Biosciences seminar in past years may receive additional credit for taking this year's class.
