Here, we used fMRI in a sample of incarcerated offenders to map these dimensions of antisocial behavior to brain circuits underlying two aspects of inhibitory self-control: interference suppression and response inhibition. We found that psychopathy and externalizing are characterized by unique and task-selective patterns of dysfunction.

Brain Imaging Research on Psychopathy: Implications for Punishment, Prediction, and Treatment in Youth and Adults. Abstract. While there has been an exponential increase in brain imaging research on psychopathy in the past two decades, knowledge on the brain basis to child and adolescent psychopathic-like behavior is relatively new. This Charming Psychopath How to spot social predators before they attack. By Robert Hare, published January 1, - last reviewed on June 9, Comments about Martin Kantor as being just a self-help author are outrageous.

The study of psychopathy represents a cornerstone of research into “dark” personality traits. Psychopathy is defined by a constellation of harmful traits and behaviors, including superficial charm, callousness, irresponsibility, and antisocial behavior (Cleckley, ).Psychopathy predicts a host of harmful outcomes, including substance abuse and crime, and incurs striking Cited by: 3.   Without Conscience Summary.

Robert Hare is also the 5/5.   The two‐process model draws on two longstanding theoretical perspectives in the psychopathy literature, one emphasizing deficits in basic emotional reactivity (e.g., Blair, ; Lykken, ) and the other emphasizing deficits in inhibitory control of behavior (e.g., Gorenstein & Newman, ; Morgan & Lilienfeld, ; Newman, ). Our Cited by: The high score on self-control in this profile is in contrast with the traditional conceptualizations of psychopathy, in which those high in psychopathy in prison are described as low in self-control and high in the trait impulsivity (DeLisi, Tostlebe, Burgason, Heirigs, & Vaughn, ; Hare, ). Indeed, lack of self-control is traditionally Author: Désiré G.C. Palmen, Jan J.L. Derksen, Emile Kolthoff.
