Neuroscience is increasingly documenting brain impairments in adolescent and adult offenders. This lecture will explore the nueroethical implications of this knowledge for our core human values of responsibility and free will, and how it should be used in the future to predict, prevent and punish offending.

Raine, University Professor and the Richard Perry Professor of criminology, psychiatry and psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, has published five books and roughly 300 journal articles and book chapters, and has given more than 200 invited presentations in 25 countries.

Winright, Hubert Mader endowed associate professor of health care ethics and associate professor of theological ethics at Saint Louis University, is a former law enforcement officer with experience in both corrections and policing.
