Why Torture Doesn’t Work - The Neuroscience of Interrogation

8:00pm ‐ 9:00pm
Crumlin Road Gaol
53-55Crumlin Rd, Belfast, BT14 6ST


Besides being cruel and inhumane, torture does not work the way torturers assume it does. As Shane O’Mara’s account of the neuroscience of suffering reveals, extreme stress creates profound problems for memory, mood, and thinking, and sufferers predictably produce information that is deeply unreliable, or even counterproductive and dangerous.
