  • BORN Killers ???

    Are some people BORN killers? Biggest ever brain imaging study of mass murderers reveals they are wired differently

    • Scientists have found chromosome abnormalities in some serial killers
    • A gene known as the Warrior gene may also play a role in psychopathy
    • Kent Kiehl has created largest forensic neuroscience library in the world
    • Found psychopaths tend to have less gray matter and smaller amygdalas
    • Says 50% of brain abnormalities in murderers is caused by genetics

    Understanding what motivates serial killers to murder many times over can be difficult to grasp.
    Over the past few decades, scientists have begun building a clearer picture of the minds behind some of the most shocking crimes.
    According to the largest forensic neuroscience library in the world, there are surprising similarities between the abnormal brains structures of mass murderers.

    What's more, the differences are 'at least 50 percent caused by genetics', raising the disturbing possibility that people can be born killers.
    The discovery follows research that claims there are certain genetic triggers than can create a murderer.
    One of them is a variant of cadherin 13 (CDH13), which is involved in neural connectivity, and has been linked to impulse control in extremely violent offenders.
