The Center for Law, Brain and Behavior (CLBB) was founded in 2008 and is an independently funded program within Massachusetts General Hospital, the flagship teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School. Staffed primarily by clinician and scholar volunteers, it is at the forefront of applying brain science to make federal, state and local legal systems more just, equitable and effective. This grant provides support for the creation of the Brain Research Digital Library. The library will provide open access to the most accurate research and clinical findings in neuroscience, curated in structured legal documents, databases and learning modules to educate and assist judges, attorneys, legislators, policy analysts and advocates. There will also be a librarian who can respond to inquiries, make referrals for consultations and curate holdings.
