Professor Stephen J. Morse is one of the world’s leading authorities on law and neuroscience. Over the past four decades he has published countless articles and chapters that have shaped debate in this field, as well as important collections including Foundations of Criminal Law (with Leo Katz & Michael S. Moore) and A Primer on Criminal Law and Neuroscience (with Adina L. Roskies).
Professor Morse was Co-Director of the MacArthur Foundation Law and Neuroscience Project, a past president of Division 41 of the American Psychological Association, and a recipient of the American Academy of Forensic Psychology’s Distinguished Contribution Award. Currently he is a Diplomate in Forensic Psychology of the American Board of Professional Psychology, a trustee of the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, and a member of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Mental Health and Law.
