Neuroscience, neurolaw?

This is from a popular Canadian talk show, The Agenda with Steve Paikin, screen on TVO (TV Ontario).  Normally I would focus on media reports from Australia and the US, but the topic of this discussion is very relevant to the whole question of mens rea and the use of ‘insanity’ as a defence against criminal charge, especially in the light of advances in neuroscience.

I will comment further about this, because this might not be easy to comprehend for senior Legal Studies students.  I will also post a paragraph illustrating how to integrate this kind of media report discussion into a crime essay.
