Abstract [en]

After three proceedings in which neuro-science was a relevant factor for the final verdict inItalian courts, for the first time a recent case puts inquestion the legal relevance of neuroscientific evidence.This decision deserves international attention in itsunderlining that the uncertainty still affecting neuroscien-tific knowledge can have a significant impact on thelaw. It urges the consideration of such uncertainty andthe development of a shared management of it.
