AAAS Annual Meeting – ‘Memories Imaged and Imagined: How the Science of Memory Will Challenge the Law’ Symposium
February 13, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
The ‘Memories Imaged and Imagined: How the Science of Memory Will Challenge the Law‘ symposium will set out some of our new knowledge of memory — how it can be formed, stored, detected, modified, and even falsified. Neuroscientists will describe some of these new discoveries and legal scholars will point out the possible consequences for the legal system. The symposium will feature an extended period for discussion. The goal is not to provide all the answers but to help start the interdisciplinary conversations societies will need to make good use, and avoid misuse, of the new science of memory.
