In the Balance: Bringing Science to Justice with David Faigman:  In the Balance: Bringing Science to Justice with David Faigman (Podcast)

The fields of science and the law pervade modern society, and yet largely exist in separate spheres. Where scientists seek truth, the law seeks justice, two laudable goals, but which often overlap only marginally. Clearly the law works with different objectives, values, and timetables than does science. And science can never say what is fair and just. However, in todays technological world, science has become, and will forevermore be, a legal tool for justice.

In the Balance: Bringing Science to Justice with David Faigman:  I'm Alright, Jack, Keep Your Hands Off My Stack: Cognitive Science and Financial Decisions As We Age (Podcast)
Running Time:
01:02:44
The United States population of older adults is projected to double by 2050. This unprecedented demographic shift has wide-ranging implications for our society as demand grows for programs and services tailored to the needs of older adults. As many quickly discover, navigating the patchwork of medical, financial, social, and legal systems needed to meet ones needs in retirement can be a burden requiring complex decision-making in an uncertain environment. This is a challenge for even the most sophisticated consumers and there is particular concern about older adults navigating these decisions, as converging neuroscientific and economic research indicates that many cognitive skills decline with ageand age is a principal risk factor for impairing conditions like Alzheimers disease and stroke. Given this body of evidence, many advocate for stronger protections for adults from fraud and exploitation. At the same time, persistent ageism and common misperceptions about the prevalence of cognitive impairment in older adults raise concerns about whether well-intentioned attempts to protect older adults risk depriving them of their rights to make autonomous decisions. Please join David Faigman in conversation with special guests Daniel Marson and Winston Chiong to discuss current and emerging scientific research about how we make decisions as we age, how physicians assess our capacity to make decisions, and the legal and ethical implications for families and society.

In the Balance: Bringing Science to Justice with David Faigman:  Uses and Misuses of Neuroscience in Law (Podcast)
Running Time:
01:45:00
In 1991, using powerful magnets and sewer pipe, wire, epoxy, and finger tapping,* a few research groups converged on the idea of utilizing the magnetic resonance properties of gray matter to image the active, thinking human brainwhat the world now knows as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Since then, cognitive neuroscience has developed apace, with an explosion of ingenious techniques and sophisticated tools. Each new advance is greeted with a chorus of scholarly and popular speculation on its potential application to other arenas of human endeavor. Discussions about the promise of neuroscience are often tinged with a mixture of hope and fear. Nowhere is this ambivalence more evident than in the courts, as conjecture runs rampant about the legal impact of this research, stoked by claims that neuroscience may soon detect liars, objectively determine criminal responsibility, quantify suffering, and predict violence. But is neuroscience ready for courtroom use? Does brain imaging permit us to measure a persons feelings, thoughts, and intentions? Can jurors understand and effectively weigh neuroscientific evidence? Please join host David Faigman along with Dr. Kent Kiehl of the University of New Mexico and Professor Amanda Pustilnik of the University of Maryland and Harvard University to discuss the fascinating and wide-ranging challenges posed by the use of contemporary neuroscience in the courtroom.
