The article discusses the model of the individual’s criminalization process, considering the possible socially negative heredity at the genetic
level, starting from the antenatal (pre-natal) development period to fixed criminal activities. The performed neurological studies using positron
emission tomography in a criminological context confirm the correlation between the potential pathology of the brain of individuals and criminal
behavior. Specialist studies may affect the legal framework of legal proceedings, the inclusion of crime subjects and the organization of individual
preventive measures.
