  • Description: Michael Gazzaniga began his career in neuroscience by studying how the human brain’s left and right hemispheres are specialized for different tasks. Over the years, those insights into brain function have fueled his interest in how the brain influences the mind. Gazzaniga, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara and a recently elected member of the National Academy of Sciences, has served on the US President’s Council on Bioethics and has authored several popular books that explore the links between the brain, behavior, and the law. As those links continue to burgeon, evidence based on neuroscience might become commonplace in courtrooms. Gazzaniga tells PNAS how such interplay might influence the practice of law in the future.
