Conference: Libet Experiments - Neurosciences and Criminal Law

The Research Centre on Criminal Law and Criminal Sciences organizes a conference on "The Libet Experiments: Neurosciences and Criminal Law", with Eduardo Ducla-Soares (Institute of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering of the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Lisbon). The conference takes as a starting point the experiments Libet performed and the interpretations they originated, and addresses the relationships that exist between Neurosciences and Criminal Law. There has been much debate on this topic in recent times, having given rise to disciplines such as Neuroethics and Neurolaw.
This conference is part of the monthly investigation seminar Seminário de Investigação Mensal 1 (SIM 1, coordinator Maria Fernanda Palma), and is open to the public.

Scientific coordination: Maria Fernanda Palma

Admission: Free entrance, subject to room capacity (previous registration required)
