Did My Brain Do It?

David Roef, PhD
associate professor of criminal law and procedure

Neuroscience is being used more and more frequently in courts of law; usually to show proof that the defendant is not accountable. Some scientists even claim that nobody is truly responsible, as everything is determined by the brain. Based on a few criminal cases, Roef talks about this development. He also discusses some neuro-myths, such as “we are our brain”.
