How does a criminal’s brain differ from that of a non-criminal? How much free will does a criminal have? How should the law take into account the findings of neuroscience?
Lars Mensel of The European recently discussed these questions and more with neuroscientist David Eagleman, author of the recent book Incognito: The Secret Lives of Brains. Eagleman’s answers are rather interesting, and I think you will enjoy reading the interview.
