This landmark publication offers a unique comparative and interdisciplinary study of criminal insanity and neuroscience. Criminal policy theories and ideologies which underpin the regulation of criminal insanity have always been the subject of controversy.

The authors in this anthology volume explore in depth the state of the art of legal insanity and the numerous intricate, fascinating, pioneering and sophisticated questions raised by the integration of different criminal law and behaviour theories, diverse disciplines and methodologies, in a genuinely interdisciplinary perspective.

This volume will serve as a practical guide for the comparative legal scholar and the judge, as well as stimulating scholarly reading for the neuroscientist, the social scientist and the philosopher with interdisciplinary scientific interests.
