This chapter speculates modestly and cautiously about how future developments in neuroscience might affect adjudication, the development of doctrine, and practice. Although it is sceptical that near and intermediate term neuroscientific discoveries will cause profound or radical legal changes, it might well foster more accurate adjudication, more rational and just doctrine, and more efficient, just practices.

Keywords:   Neuroscience, reform, legal relevance, future developments
