Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The paper deals with the issue of the causes of exclusion of the accountability of the offender. After having reconstructed the normative references present in the penal code regarding imputability and mental vice, the contribution examines the most recent and promising explanatory paradigm of mental illness, consisting of scientific disciplines that try to explain human behavior from different perspectives (genetics, brain, biochemistry). After recalling the most recent rulings on criminal liability and mental vice according to the perspective offered by neuroscience, the paper highlights the importance of collaboration between judges and experts, underlining the importance of psychiatric-forensic expertise as a means of proof on the which the judge can rely on.
