ALEMAN ORTIZ, Omar Felipe. Forsensic Neurosciences: The New Criminal Paradigm. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.1, pp.119-130. ISSN 2215-5287.

Neurosciences are in the midst of a resurgence of interest in the biological dimension of human mental states and behavior, even more so with the introduction of biosocial criminology and the penal system into the field. The introduction of new disciplines in the criminal field represents a challenge when validating them as a useful tool for the process, given that each aspect will have points for and against them, which is why it is essential to critically analyze the usefulness, viability and degree of certainty offered by these disciplines. Apart from forensic neurosciences, it is predominant to analyze them in an integral, biological, psychological, ethical and legal way, so that the contributions that this branch offers to the rule of law are objective and suitable for the criminal system of each temporary and social circumstance in which they are implemented.
