Cognitive neuroscience applied to law. A neurolaw introduction

Federico Tormen

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


Legal reasoning, from the decision of United Chambers of Supreme Court, through the legal assistance activity carried out by a lawyer, to the purchase of an object on Amazon by a common citizen (which integrates a contractual constraint), contains in itself assessments of opportunity and moral evaluation, problem solving, decision making and, in general, a cognitive activation very wide ranging. Thanks to the multidisciplinary vocation of neuroscience, in particular focused at the cognitive field in legal practice, the aim of the research in cognitive neuroscience applied to law is to help to bridge the lack of in-depth analysis in the decision-making processes that the main players of the law, such as judges and lawyers, are informed. And all this, taking into account the ethical issues that occur above all in the comparative analysis of neuroscience-law interaction.
