Abstract:     
Recent years have seen extraordinary growth in the amount of legal scholarship, legal practice, and public policy at the intersection of law and neuroscience. In order to help the legal community navigate this emerging field of neurolaw, the accompanying Law and Neuroscience Bibliography has been created. The published bibliography presented here contains nearly 600 entries, and the updated online version now contains over 700 entries. The brief introductory comments to the published piece discuss the creation and contents of the bibliography, and provide suggestions for where one should begin their research in the area. The comments focus on (1) identification of law and neuroscience scholarship; (2) historical growth pattern of the scholarship; (3) nature of interdisciplinary authorship in the field, and patterns of publication outlets; and (4) closing thoughts on the future of law and neuroscience scholarship. Appendix A provides a list of recommended starting places, including the first Law and Neuroscience casebook (forthcoming from Aspen Publishers), for those who wish to further their understanding of the field.

Note on updates since 2010: This article contains the version of the law and neuroscience bibliography published in 2010. Since its initial publication, many additional entries have been added to the online version of the bibliography, which can be accessed through the home page of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Law and Neuroscience.
