ABOUT THE FORUM:

The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Forum was launched in 2008 as a venue where scientific conferences and meetings could be held to “help the scientific leadership of the United Kingdom and the United States forge an enduring and productive partnership on pressing topics of worldwide scientific concern with benefit to all people."

This year's forum was held on March 2-3, 2011 at the National Academies’ Beckman Center in Irvine, CA. It brought together experts for presentations and moderated discussions in the following topic areas:

  • Neuroscience in Court
  • Mind Reading (including a discussion of lie detection, pain, and false memory)
  • Criminal Responsibility and Sentencing
  • Moral Reasoning and Psychopathy
  • The Developing Brain
