Press Release

Winter School 2011

The first Neuroscience School in Europe for non-scientist young scholars
Pavia, 23rd January -3rd February 2012

Neuroscience and neuro-techniques revolutionize the way we perceive our behaviour, our body, the possibilities of rehabilitation after a trauma, and also deviant behaviour and the reply of criminal justice. On 23rd January 2012, at Aula Foscolo, Faculty of Law, University of Pavia, the Law and Neuroscience Winter School 2012 will begin. It is an intensive course of neuroscience and its possible interaction with the law for young scholars who do not have a scientific background ., It is approved and financed by the European Union Erasmus-Intensive Programme. Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti, coordinator of the research group that discovered the existence of mirror neurons at the University of Parma, will give the opening lecture. The school is an initiative of the European Center for Law, Science and New Technologies ECLT, University of Pavia, in collaboration with the European Association for Neuroscience and Law (coordinated by the centre itself) and with the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität, Bonn (Germany), the University of the West of England, Bristol (UK), the Université de Liège (Belgium), the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) and the Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen (The Netherlands).
The ECLT is a research centre, which operates in the law & science field and, in few years, has gained a prestigious position at national and international level (further information on the website
), in particular in the field of neuroscience and law, and the studies on interaction between robotics and law.
For the first time in Europe, the Winter School is addressed to undergraduate, graduate and PhD students in Law, Philosophy and Psychology, and aims to provide them with basic skills on neuroscience, and with the capacity to critically analyse and study possible impacts of neuroscience on civil-law and common-law legal systems. Faculty members come form the European partner institutions, and the lectures will be given in English, at the University of Pavia, from 23rd January to 3rd February 2012.
