- From Thursday 5th to Saturday 7th October 2017, the international conference "Neurosciences and the law: implications and perspectives" took place at the University of Parma (via Università 12). The conference was organized by the University Center of Bioethics (UCB),  the Center for Studies in European and International Affairs (CSEIA) and the Department of Law, Politics and International Studies of the University of Parma. The conference was convened to study the possible interplay between neurosciences and the law, with the aim of understanding how the developments in the neurosciences sector may impact on  traditional legal notions and how the law should react to these innovations. The overall goal was to identify, by adopting a compartive and inter-disciplinary approach, the intersections between neurosciences and the law and, at the same time, stress the importance of this dialogue.
