3-4 p.m.
Psychopaths have long captured the imagination. The names of famous psychopaths, such as Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy, evoke a morbid curiosity. The crimes committed by these men are so vicious that it’s impossible to imagine how someone could do such a thing. In this talk, I will present research from psychology and neuroscience that raise questions about whether psychopaths are criminally responsible and provide insights into how to manage these individuals within the criminal justice system.
