Science and Technology Capstone & Independent Study 
Abstract: Over the past 36 years, neuroimaging technologies have been employed as evidence in a diverse range of cases. Two primary types of neuroimaging exist: structural and functional. However, functional neuroimaging is increasingly being utilized in courtrooms. The critical question is whether using this technology as a sole source of evidence is reliable. This paper analyzes the technology itself, the rules governing expert testimony in courtrooms, and the potential social, political, and racial implications of its use.
