, Template:OldStyleDate, Noginsk|Bogorodsk – Template:OldStyleDate, Moscow) was one of the founders of the forensic psychiatry in Russia.[1] An author of The Forensic Psychopathology, Serbskiy thought delinquency to have no congenital diatheses, considering it to be caused by social reasons.

Then he was offered the rank of the senior assistant in the mental hospital of Moscow University. In 1902 Serbsky became a professor extraordinary and the head of psychiatric studies at Moscow University. Pyotr Gannushkin was one of his students.
