The Project on Law and Mind Sciences at Harvard Law School (PLMS) has been diligently offering up some of the most interesting lectures regarding the influence of psychology, cognitive neuroscience and others in the social sciences on the understanding of law, policy making, and legal theory. By making these materials available on YouTube, they are creating nothing less than a treasure trove. See their YouTube Channel for more.

I’ve previously blogged on Philip Zimbardo‘s talk at the TED Conference. His talk at Harvard is longer and more in depth, elucidating the findings of his book The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil in the context of Abu Ghraib. See below for the videos in 11 parts.

    On a related note, I came across the Testimony of Spc. Brandon Neely, an eyewitness and participant testifying to the Guantánamo Testimonials Project.
