Whenever a crime happens, the community is left wondering how someone could do such a thing but very few know that this can be forecasted by brain scanning. Violent Minds show the brain abnormalities that affect their behavior and becomes the root of some heinous sins.
All the parts of your brain work together to make you a complete, but for many criminals, some of these parts aren’t the same size & shape as they are in the normal persons, causing them to act differently than rest of us. A study of psychopaths hah sound that a portion of the amygdala in their brains has a volume of about 18% less than what you would find in a normal person. The amygdala plays important role in the creation and dealing of human emotions
Neurotransmitters are chemicals in our brains that deliver signals and cause reactions in us, such as arousal or triggering memory etc. Research has found that some criminal brains have different levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin or dopamine than normal brains.
Serotonin at the proper levels keeps people from acting aggressively when they are frustrated, so when someone’s brain has lower amounts he may react impulsively and violently. Dopamine levels affect whether a person feels rewarded for an action. If dopamine levels increase significantly when someone acts aggressively, he’ll feel good about it and likely do it again.
