BrainPromo for this Thursday’s show.

As neuroscience provides increasing amounts of information on how the human brain works which is contrary to old assumptions, will it change the way we approach trials, sentencing, and our personal feelings about people accused of crimes? Does the science call for more of a medical approach to crime than punitive?  What would such policies look like?  Is rehabilitation and reparation as opposed to retribution possible?  Join Julia Minton, Bob Froehlich, and Eric Kirk for a discussion of neuroscience and the law this Thursday night at 7 pm on All Things Reconsidered.
