My graduate seminar in neurolaw at GSU is up and running, and I’m stoked to have 14 brilliant MA and PhD students – and even one undergraduate student – enrolled from the disciplines of neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy.
One of my aims this semester is for each of my students to write a final paper on a topic of their choosing that will be accepted for publication in a peer reviewed academic journal, and when this happens I’ll brag loudly about my students’ successes.
But for now here’s a link to this year’s course syllabus, which is naturally a perpetual work in progress given the pace of developments in this field.
Regretfully, I had to leave out many awesome papers from the set readings list, as well as many fascinating topics, simply because there is only that much content that can be squeezed into a single semester. I’ve started developing a follow-up course (neurolaw seminar part 2) to cover these other topics and papers. If you are planning (or have been running) your own course on neurolaw, and wish to use something from my syllabus for your teaching needs then please be my guest. Or if you have suggestions for topics and articles that I should add – either to the next iteration of this syllabus, or to the “neurolaw seminar part 2” syllabus that I’m currently designing – then please flick me an email or tweet at me or something (links to my twitter etc at the bottom right corner of this page).
