The Centre for Forensic Neuroscience was founded to meet the ever increasing demand from both defence lawyers and prosecutors for neuroscientific evidence. With the advent of ever more powerful brain scanning technology the use imaging, and other neuropsychological, evidence in Court has become a distinct reality. Thus jurors may now be asked to consider abnormal brain functioning with respect to criminal responsibility. Therefore brain anomalies are becoming a vital and primary area of evidence for legal mitigation.
