Panel and Roundtable: Neuroimaging, Consciousness, and the Law
Friday, February 3, 2017 8:30 a.m.: Registration and breakfast 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Program
About the Panel Discussion New technologies, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), are beginning to provide more accurate methods of measuring experience and, in turn, are leading to a new vision of how law, medicine and ethics should confront the realities of consciousness, pain, suffering and disorders of the brain. This program will explore the implications of advances in neuroscience and suggest ways in which the law should more appropriately advance the rights of individuals and the responsibilities of society.
Speakers Joseph J. Fins, The E. William Davis, Jr. M.D. Professor of Medical Ethics and Chief of the Division of Medical Ethics, Weill Cornell Medical College
