Scientist and The Psychopath, Snap #617 - Tin Man

Email a Friend

Neuroanatomist Dr. James Fallon studies the most dangerous kind of person: the psychopath. His job is to get up close and personal with the mind of the psychopath so that we can better understand what makes them tick. He treats their brains with the cold calculation of a scientist at work. But in the process things get mighty personal.

James Fallon, PhD is a neuroanatomist and geneticist at UC-Irvine. For more about his work and his own life, check out his book here:The Psychopath Inside: A Neuroscientist's Personal Journey into the Dark Side of the Brain: James Fallon.
