Pardo, Michael S.,

Minds, brains, and law : the conceptual foundations of law and neuroscience / Michael S. Pardo and Dennis Patterson. - New York : Oxford University Press, 2014.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

Pardo and Patterson assess the philosophical questions that arise when neuroscientific research and technology are applied in the legal system. It examines the arguments favouring the increased use of neuroscience in law, the means for assessing its reliability in legal proceedings, and the integration of neuroscientific research into substantive legal doctrines. The book uses its explorations to inform a corrective inquiry into the mistaken inferences and conceptual errors that arise from mismatched concepts, such as the mental disconnect of what constitutes 'lying' on a lie detection test.
