Why do some people live lawful lives, while others gravitate toward repeated criminal behavior? Do people choose to be moral or immoral, or is morality simply a genetically inherited function of the brain? Research suggests that psychopathy as a biological condition explained by defective neural circuits that mediate empathy, but what does that mean when neuroscience is used as evidence in criminal court? Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Octavio Choi seakexperts.com/members/9045-octavio-choi will explore how emerging neuroscience challenges long-held assumptions underlying the basis—and punishment—of criminal behavior.
