Miscellaneous:  The Science of Sharing Forum with Hugh E. McDonald and Jennifer Jacquet (Clip)
Running Time:
00:42:09

On June 6, 2015, the Exploratorium hosted the Science of Sharing Forum, a public event featuring presentations by researchers and educators and activities exploring cooperation and sustainability. These talks and demonstrations shed light on how scientists study human behavior and fostered insight into large-scale societal challenges—such as energy use, ecosystem collapse, international conflict, and climate change—that depend on people negotiating ways to share finite resources and act for the long-term good of all.

Dr. Hugh McDonald is a Project Director, Senior Science Writer, and Associate Curator for the museum’s Osher West Gallery, which focuses on the interplay among science, society, and culture. He is a social psychologist and Principal Investigator of the Science of Sharing project.

Dr. Jennifer Jacquet, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies at New York University, is an environmental social scientist. Much of her work focuses on transboundary cooperation issues such as overfishing, climate change, and wildlife preservation—challenges that depend in part on negotiation, communication, and trust, concepts at the heart of Science of Sharing.

Science in the City:  Sound Restoration (Clip)
Running Time:
00:05:31
Experimental physicist Carl Haber restores antique audio recordings too old, fragile, or damaged to be otherwise replayed—including recordings made in wax, soot, and foil. Using optical scanning technologies from his work at CERN in Switzerland, Haber has recovered and preserved a diverse collection of deteriorating sonic artifacts, voices from the past that otherwise would have been lost.

In the Balance: Bringing Science to Justice with David Faigman:  Uses and Misuses of Neuroscience in Law (Podcast)
Running Time:
01:45:00
In 1991, using powerful magnets and “sewer pipe, wire, epoxy, and finger tapping,”* a few research groups converged on the idea of utilizing the magnetic resonance properties of gray matter to image the active, thinking human brain—what the world now knows as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Since then, cognitive neuroscience has developed apace, with an explosion of ingenious techniques and sophisticated tools. Each new advance is greeted with a chorus of scholarly and popular speculation on its potential application to other arenas of human endeavor. Discussions about the ‘promise of neuroscience’ are often tinged with a mixture of hope and fear. Nowhere is this ambivalence more evident than in the courts, as conjecture runs rampant about the legal impact of this research, stoked by claims that neuroscience may soon detect liars, objectively determine criminal responsibility, quantify suffering, and predict violence. But is neuroscience ready for courtroom use? Does brain imaging permit us to measure a person’s feelings, thoughts, and intentions? Can jurors understand and effectively weigh neuroscientific evidence? Please join host David Faigman along with Dr. Kent Kiehl of the University of New Mexico and Professor Amanda Pustilnik of the University of Maryland and Harvard University to discuss the fascinating and wide-ranging challenges posed by the use of contemporary neuroscience in the courtroom.
