Nowadays, we are witnessing the increasing scholarly attention to neuroscience achievements in the context of law. However, the complexity of the brain cognitive functions and the performance limits of current neuroscience techniques for discovering the secrets of the brain on one hand, and the need to neurolitigation development with ethico-legal constraints on the other hand, caused some limits in ‘law and neuroscience’. Hence, this paper strives to shed lights on the core limits of current neurolaw in the practical and theoretical contexts. As a conclusion we recognized some main limits in summary, including the problem with: Some assumptions, precise examination, the relation between the brain and mind, data interpretation, the legal validity, the judicial uncertainty, fMRI-based lie detection techniques, the assessment of criminal responsibility, the time, evaluating the dangerousness, unknown center of subjective experience in the brain, ambiguity in reconceptualizing the core concepts of law, determinism, arbitrary legal reasoning, modern neuro-rights, the advanced mind, and neurolegislation.
