Summary/Abstract: The aim of the present study was to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of the modern forensic handwriting analysis.

It was very difficult (or impossible) for experts to give a proper conclusion if he or she hadn’t known how such disorders influence in psychomotor functions (automated handwriting movements).
