This episode discusses Neuroscience in Law: The Rise of NeuroTech with Amanda Pustilnik. We discuss chronic pain in the law, new technologies in neuroscience, and neuroethics. 

Amanda C. Pustilnik is the director of the Project on Law and Pain at the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Law, Brain & Behavior and Professor of Law at the University of Maryland School Carey of Law, where she teaches neuroscience and law, forensic evidence, and special topics in law and science. Her work focuses on the intersections of law, science, and culture, with a particular emphasis on the brain.

She has worked extensively on questions of pain in law, convening cross-disciplinary conferences and collaborations involving pain scientists, legal scholars, and bioethicists. She currently is serving on a committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Medicine, and Engineering focused on chronic pain disorders, and, in 2017, authored the legal report of the Aspen Institute’s Report on Opioids in America. In 2015, she served as Harvard Law School’s first senior fellow in law and applied neuroscience, with an emphasis on pain-related disorders and their legal status.
