The aim of the conference is to combine the perspectives of psychology, neurobiology, and cognitive science.

Recent advances in psychology, neurobiology and cognitive science have created many ideas whose relevance for jurisprudence can be significant. It is our hope that a stimulating exchange of ideas between scholars from these empirical disciplines and legal scholars will generate new insights and develop further the ongoing debate in this field.
