This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Nita Farahany, Robert O. Everett Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy at Duke University. Nita Farahany is a leading scholar on the ethical, legal, and social implications of emerging technologies. This wide-ranging conversation examines the growing impact of modern neuroscience on the law, deepening our understanding of a wide range of issues, from legal responsibility to the American Constitution's Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.

I. Neurolegal Beginnings - From cadavers to courtrooms

II. Framing the Issues - Atypicalities, compulsion and plea bargaining

III. Ineffective Legal Counsel - Waking up to neuroscience

IV. Taking the Fifth - Neuroscience as a legal lens

V. Moral Ownership - Neuroscience and responsibility

VI. Administering Bioethics - Comparing different approaches
