The Center for Law, Brain & Behavior puts the most accurate and actionable neuroscience in the hands of judges, lawyers, policymakers and journalists—people who shape the standards and practices of our legal system and affect its impact on people’s lives. We work to make the legal system more effective and more just for all those affected by the law.

How to help

With strong and experienced leadership and a multidisciplinary faculty in law, neurology, psychiatry and neuroimaging, MGH and the Center for Law, Brain & Behavior are uniquely suited to tackle the development of new neuropsychological instruments, neuroimaging protocols, scientific guidelines and evaluative research that ultimately ensures responsible and scientifically based translations of medical concepts into legal settings.

Philanthropic support will help to further develop new projects that aim to fulfill the Center’s mission as it answers emerging questions in this neuroscientific frontier. We look forward to working in partnership with individuals and foundations to ensure the success of this Center for academic excellence.
