In 2003, Larsen and Lunts established a connection between motivic integration and stable rationality. Recently, Nicaise and Shinder used this to prove that stable rationality is preserved under certain degeneration of smooth families. Theses ideas have been further developed by Kontsevich and Tschinkel. In this talk, I will survey these results and discuss how they can be applied to detecting rationality for certain moduli spaces. This is joint work in progress with Ananyo Dan.
