Psychopath: Gas Pedal Only – No Breaks


“…the tendency to commit an offence arises from a combination of a strong focus on reward and a lack of self-control..”

“…the reward centre in the brains of people with many psychopathic traits (both criminal and non-criminal) were more strongly activated than those in people without psychopathic traits…the brains of non-criminal individuals with psychopathic traits are triggered by the expectation of reward…this is also the case for criminal individuals with psychopathic traits.”
