THE BRAIN DEFENSE: Murder in Manhattan and the Dawn of Neuroscience in America's Courtrooms
In 1991, Herbert Weinstein, with no history of violent behavior, killed his wife and threw her body out their apartment window. When it was discovered Weinstein had a cyst the size of an orange on the frontal lobe of his brain which governs judgement and impulse control, his lawyer had his defense. Davis offers a powerful account of neuroscience's potential, and its hazards.
