  • Disorder in which the person (usually men)
    exhibits a lack of conscience for wrongdoing,
    even towards friends and family members. Formerly
    called sociopath or psychopath.

Understanding Antisocial Personality Disorder

    personality disorder has biological and
    psychological reasons. Youngsters before
    committing crime respond with lower levels of
    stress hormones than do others their age.

Understanding Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • PET scans of 41 murderers revealed reduced
    activity in the frontal lobes. In a follow-up
    study repeat offenders had 11 less frontal lobe
    compared to normals (Raine et al., 1999 2000).

Understanding Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Probability of crime increases twice as much when
    childhood poverty is compounded with obstetrical
    complications (Raine et al., 1999 2000).
