Subtypes of family history and conduct disorder: effects on P300 during the stroop test. (1/584)

The goal of the present study was to identify neurophysiological differences associated with a family history of substance dependence, and its subtypes (paternal alcohol, cocaine, or opiate dependence), and with conduct disorder, and its subtypes (aggression, deceitfulness/theft, and rules violations). P300 event-related brain potentials were recorded from 210 males and females, aged 15-20 years while they performed the Stroop color-word compatibility test. Analyses revealed no significant effects of familial substance dependence on P300. However, an elevated number of conduct disorder problems was associated with a statistically significant reduction in P300 amplitude. The P300 amplitude reduction was related to the severity of the "rules violation" subtype, but was unrelated to aggression or deceitfulness and theft. It is concluded that conduct disorder can explain many of the P300 findings previously attributed to a family history of alcohol dependence. Furthermore, it appears that conduct disorder may be a heterogenous classification comprised of neurophysiologically different subtypes.  (+info)

Mice with reduced NMDA receptor expression display behaviors related to schizophrenia. (2/584)

N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) represent a subclass of glutamate receptors that play a critical role in neuronal development and physiology. We report here the generation of mice expressing only 5% of normal levels of the essential NMDAR1 (NR1) subunit. Unlike NR1 null mice, these mice survive to adulthood and display behavioral abnormalities, including increased motor activity and stereotypy and deficits in social and sexual interactions. These behavioral alterations are similar to those observed in pharmacologically induced animal models of schizophrenia and can be ameliorated by treatment with haloperidol or clozapine, antipsychotic drugs that antagonize dopaminergic and serotonergic receptors. These findings support a model in which reduced NMDA receptor activity results in schizophrenic-like behavior and reveals how pharmacological manipulation of monoaminergic pathways can affect this phenotype.  (+info)

Parent-infant interactions among families with alcoholic fathers. (3/584)

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between fathers' alcoholism and the quality of parent-infant interactions during free play. A related goal was to study the potential mediating or moderating role of comorbid parental psychopathology, such as depression and antisocial behavior, difficult infant temperament, and parental aggression. The sample consisted of 204 families with 12-month-old infants (104 alcoholic and 100 control families), recruited from New York State birth records. Results indicated that fathers' alcoholism was associated with a number of other risk factors (depression, antisocial behavior, and family aggression). Fathers' alcoholism was also associated with more negative father-infant interactions as indicated by lower paternal sensitivity, positive affect, verbalizations, higher negative affect, and lower infant responsiveness among alcoholic fathers. As expected, fathers' depression mediated the relationship between fathers' alcoholism and sensitivity, while maternal depression mediated the association between maternal alcohol problems and maternal sensitivity. Parents' psychopathology did not moderate the association between alcoholism and parent-infant interactions. The results from the present study suggest that the origins of risk for later maladjustment among children of alcoholic fathers are apparent as early as infancy and highlight the role of comorbid parental risk factors.  (+info)

Clinical correlates of cigarette smoking and nicotine dependence in alcohol-dependent men and women. The Collaborative Study Group on the Genetics of Alcoholism. (4/584)

This paper examines the clinical characteristics associated with tobacco use and nicotine dependence in a large sample of alcohol-dependent subjects. The goal was to determine if the characteristics of the alcohol use history were associated with the smoking status, even after controlling for additional characteristics, such as the antisocial personality disorder, other drug dependence and gender. As part of the Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism, a semi-structured interview, including a detailed history of alcohol and tobacco use, was administered to 1005 alcohol-dependent men and women, made up of 658 (65.5%) current smokers, 167 (16.6%) former smokers, and 180 (17.9%) non-smokers. Among former smokers, 50.3%, and among current smokers, 72.8% had ever been nicotine-dependent (DSM-III-R). Current smokers and nicotine-dependent subjects had a greater severity of alcohol dependence, even as evaluated through logistic regression analyses in which gender and associated diagnoses were considered. The data also enabled us to study the relationships among depression, nicotine dependence, and alcohol dependence, with most of the correlation occurring for substance-induced, not independent, mood disorders.  (+info)

Impaired social response reversal. A case of 'acquired sociopathy'. (5/584)

In this study, we report a patient (J.S.) who, following trauma to the right frontal region, including the orbitofrontal cortex, presented with 'acquired sociopathy'. His behaviour was notably aberrant and marked by high levels of aggression and a callous disregard for others. A series of experimental investigations were conducted to address the cognitive dysfunction that might underpin his profoundly aberrant behaviour. His performance was contrasted with that of a second patient (C.L.A.), who also presented with a grave dysexecutive syndrome but no socially aberrant behaviour, and five inmates of Wormwood Scrubs prison with developmental psychopathy. While J.S. showed no reversal learning impairment, he presented with severe difficulty in emotional expression recognition, autonomic responding and social cognition. Unlike the comparison populations, J.S. showed impairment in: the recognition of, and autonomic responding to, angry and disgusted expressions; attributing the emotions of fear, anger and embarrassment to story protagonists; and the identification of violations of social behaviour. The findings are discussed with reference to models regarding the role of the orbitofrontal cortex in the control of aggression. It is suggested that J.S.'s impairment is due to a reduced ability to generate expectations of others' negative emotional reactions, in particular anger. In healthy individuals, these representations act to suppress behaviour that is inappropriate in specific social contexts. Moreover, it is proposed that the orbitofrontal cortex may be implicated specifically either in the generation of these expectations or the use of these expectations to suppress inappropriate behaviour.  (+info)

Merging universal and indicated prevention programs: the Fast Track model. Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (6/584)

Fast Track is a multisite, multicomponent preventive intervention for young children at high risk for long-term antisocial behavior. Based on a comprehensive developmental model, this intervention includes a universal-level classroom program plus social-skill training, academic tutoring, parent training, and home visiting to improve competencies and reduce problems in a high-risk group of children selected in kindergarten. The theoretical principles and clinical strategies utilized in the Fast Track Project are described to illustrate the interplay between basic developmental research, the understanding of risk and protective factors, and a research-based model of preventive intervention that integrates universal and indicated models of prevention.  (+info)

Peer rejection in childhood, involvement with antisocial peers in early adolescence, and the development of externalizing behavior problems. (7/584)

A longitudinal, prospective design was used to examine the roles of peer rejection in middle childhood and antisocial peer involvement in early adolescence in the development of adolescent externalizing behavior problems. Both early starter and late starter pathways were considered. Classroom sociometric interviews from ages 6 through 9 years, adolescent reports of peers' behavior at age 13 years, and parent, teacher, and adolescent self-reports of externalizing behavior problems from age 5 through 14 years were available for 400 adolescents. Results indicate that experiencing peer rejection in elementary school and greater involvement with antisocial peers in early adolescence are correlated but that these peer relationship experiences may represent two different pathways to adolescent externalizing behavior problems. Peer rejection experiences, but not involvement with antisocial peers. predict later externalizing behavior problems when controlling for stability in externalizing behavior. Externalizing problems were most common when rejection was experienced repeatedly. Early externalizing problems did not appear to moderate the relation between peer rejection and later problem behavior. Discussion highlights multiple pathways connecting externalizing behavior problems from early childhood through adolescence with peer relationship experiences in middle childhood and early adolescence.  (+info)

Antisocial personality disorder, alcohol, and aggression. (8/584)

Epidemiologic studies and laboratory research consistently link alcohol use with aggression. Not all people, however, exhibit increased aggression under the influence of alcohol. Recent research suggests that people with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) may be more prone to alcohol-related aggression than people without ASPD. As a group, people with ASPD have higher rates of alcohol dependence and more alcohol-related problems than people without ASPD. Likewise, in laboratory studies, people with ASPD show greater increases in aggressive behavior after consuming alcohol than people without ASPD. The association between ASPD and alcohol-related aggression may result from biological factors, such as ASPD-related impairments in the functions of certain brain chemicals (e.g., serotonin) or in the activities of higher reasoning, or "executive," brain regions. Alternatively, the association between ASPD and alcohol-related aggression may stem from some as yet undetermined factor(s) that increase the risk for aggression in general.  (+info)

Alcoholism can be used to explain many of the signs of antisocial personality disorder. For this reason, antisocial personality disorder can remain hidden when alcoholism is also present.
The Psychopathy Checklist or Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised, now the Psychopathy Checklist-revised (PCL-R), is a psychological assessment tool most commonly used to assess the presence of psychopathy in individuals. It is a 20-item inventory of perceived personality traits and recorded behaviors, intended to be completed on the basis of a semi-structured interview along with a review of collateral information such as official records. The PCL was originally developed in the 1970s by Canadian psychologist Robert D. Hare for use in psychology experiments, based partly on Hares work with male offenders and forensic inmates in Vancouver, and partly on an influential clinical profile by American psychiatrist Hervey M. Cleckley first published in 1941. An individuals score may have important consequences for his or her future, and because the potential for harm if the test is used or administered incorrectly is considerable, Hare argues that the test should be considered valid only if ...
UNLABELLED: Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) and psychopathy involve significant interpersonal and behavioural impairments. However, little is known about their underlying neurobiology and in particular, abnormalities in white matter (WM) microstructure. A preliminary diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) study of adult psychopaths employing tractography revealed abnormalities in the right uncinate fasciculus (UF) (Craig et al., 2009), indicating fronto-limbic disconnectivity. However, it is not clear whether WM abnormalities are restricted to this tract or are or more widespread, including other tracts which are involved in connectivity with the frontal lobe. We performed whole brain voxel-based analyses on WM fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD) maps acquired with DT-MRI to compare 15 adults with ASPD and healthy age, handedness and IQ-matched controls. Also, within ASPD subjects we related differences in FA and MD to measures of psychopathy. Significant WM FA

In the past, antisocial personality disorder was thought to be a lifelong disorder, but thats not always the case and it can sometimes be managed and treated. Evidence suggests that behaviour can improve over time with therapy, even if core characteristics such as lack of empathy remain. However, antisocial personality disorder is one of the most difficult types of personality disorders to treat. A person with antisocial personality disorder may also be reluctant to seek treatment and may only start therapy when ordered to do so by a court.. The recommended treatment for someone with antisocial personality disorder will depend on their circumstances, taking into account factors such as age, offending history and whether there are any associated problems, such as alcohol or drug misuse.. The persons family and friends will often play an active role in making decisions about their treatment and care. In some cases, substance misuse services and social care may also need to be involved.. The ...

Psychopathy is often confused with Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD), yet it is a distinct personality construct characterized by unique emotional impairments such as lack of empathy, and instrumental antisocial behaviors such as manipulativeness. Currently, Hares Psychopathy Checklist - Revised (PCL-R) is the standard diagnostic tool for assessing psychopathy. While it was estimated that 80% of the incarcerated population meets the diagnostic criteria for APD, only a third could be considered psychopaths, and they tend to be the worst repeat offenders. However, it should be noted that not all psychopaths are criminals, and many of them are very capable of becoming successful and achieving high positions in society. Researchers have long been looking for neuronal basis for this destructive and chronic disorder, and indeed several regions of the brain involved in emotional processing have been implicated. In particular, the amygdala, critical for fear and emotional processing, has been found ...

Testosterone is a male gonadal hormone that affects neuronal functioning and controlled behaviour throughout the lifespan. Five studies have investigated the relationship between testosterone and antisocial behaviour in adolescents. Several studies used the "delinquency" or "externalizing" subscales of the Child-Behaviour Checklist (CBCL) to measure antisocial behaviour. Firstly, Maras et al. found higher levels of free testosterone in a group of high externalizing male subjects compared to a group of low externalizing male participants [16]. Furthermore, they noted lower levels of free testosterone in subjects who did not show externalizing behaviour (controls) compared to subjects who occasionally or consistently showed externalizing behaviour [16]. Secondly, Fang et al. reported a positive association between free testosterone and delinquency, as defined by the "delinquency" subscale of the CBCL [8]. Additionally, studies by Granger et al. and Booth et al. used the Youth Self-Report (YSR) ...
article{5c8d9a8d-91b4-4f35-bb29-1f2b5dbab1e2, abstract = {Aiming to clarify the adult phenotype of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), the empirical literature on its childhood background among the disruptive behaviour disorders, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder (CD), or hyperkinetic conduct disorder (HKCD), was reviewed according to the Robins and Guze criteria for nosological validity. At least half of hyperactive children develop ODD and about a third CD (i.e. AD/HD+CD or HKCD) before puberty. About half of children with this combined problem constellation develop antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) in adulthood. Family and adoption/twin studies indicate that AD/HD and CD share a high heritability and that, in addition, there may be specific environmental effects for criminal behaviours. Zones of rarity delineating the disorders from each other, or from the normal variation, have not been identified. ...
The first version of the DSM in 1952 listed sociopathic personality disturbance. Individuals to be placed in this category were said to be "...ill primarily in terms of society and of conformity with the prevailing milieu, and not only in terms of personal discomfort and relations with other individuals".[verification needed] There were four subtypes, referred to as "reactions"; antisocial, dyssocial, sexual, and addiction. The antisocial reaction was said to include people who were "always in trouble" and not learning from it, maintaining "no loyalties", frequently callous and lacking responsibility, with an ability to "rationalize" their behavior. The category was described as more specific and limited than the existing concepts of "constitutional psychopathic state" or "psychopathic personality" which had had a very broad meaning; the narrower definition was in line with criteria advanced by Hervey M. Cleckley from 1941, while the term sociopathic had been advanced by George Partridge in 1928 ...
Antisocial personality disorder, psychopathy, dissocial personality disorder and sociopathy are constructs that have generally been used to predict recidivism and dangerousness, alongside being used to exclude patients from treatment services. However, antisocial personality disorder has recently begun to emerge as a treatment diagnosis, a development reflected within cognitive behaviour therapy and mentalisation-based psychotherapy. Many of the behaviour characteristics of antisocial personality disorder are, at the same time, being targeted by interventions at criminal justice settings. A significantly higher proportion of published articles focusing on antisocial personality concern treatment when compared to articles on psychopathy. Currently, the proposal for antisocial personality disorder for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition, suggests a major change in the criteria for this disorder. While the present definition focuses mainly on observable behaviours,
In this study, we examined a range of clinical and cognitive domains in young adults with ASPD, a condition often associated with a host of deleterious long-term outcomes. Unlike many prior studies, we examined ASPD in a representative non-treatment-seeking community sample, rather than, for example, participants recruited from forensic settings (incarcerated populations or those on parole). We also excluded participants with substance use disorder(s). Our sample of ASPD participants can be regarded as being at the milder end of the disease severity spectrum. The key cognitive findings were that ASPD was associated with impaired response inhibition on the Stop-Signal Task, and impaired risk adjustment on the Cambridge Gamble Task, both with medium-large effect size, but intact performance on the other domains considered (general response speed, set-shifting, working memory, and executive planning). ASPD was also associated with significantly elevated rates of previous illegal acts (not ...
This disorder was previously known as both psychopathic and Sociopathic personality disorder. Like most personality disorders, there are many factors that may contribute to the development of symptoms.
Antisocial personality disorder (APD) is a personality disorder which is often characterised by antisocial and impulsive behaviour. APD is generally (if controversially) considered to be the same as, or similar to, the disorder that was previously known as psychopathic or sociopathic personality disorder. Approximately 3% of men and 1% of women have some form of antisocial personality disorder (source: DSM-IV).

Despite a relatively low prevalence, individuals with antisocial personality disorder made substantial contributions to self-reported violence in the household population of Britain. Eliminating the exposure of the disorder would have reduced the proportion of individuals reporting injuries to others by almost a quarter, indicating a subgroup in the population suitable for targeted (or secondary and tertiary) prevention strategies. Individuals with antisocial personality disorder demonstrated strong associations with injuring victims, and their violence was repetitive. They victimised partners and family members as well as strangers, and were most likely to be violent towards the police. They reported violence in all locations studied, and violence was more likely when intoxicated. They were also likely to receive injuries themselves, thereby adding to the burden of care on healthcare services.. These behaviours represent components of a generalised antisocial lifestyle comprising a wide range ...

Diagnostically speaking, psychopathy has been most closely represented as Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) since the DSM-III, with very little change in DSM-IV. The criteria for ASPD, however, are inadequate for indexing the full psychopathy syndrome (Hare, 1996), which is a much more useful construct to consider in workplace settings. The DSM-IV ASPD criteria are heterogeneous and reflect non-specific behavioral deviance rather than the affective and interpersonal characteristics representative of psychopathy. Of focal importance to our topic, the diagnostic criteria for ASPD heavily emphasize criminal behavior and are likely to be less useful in characterizing the non-criminal, or "successful" variants of psychopathy that are more applicable in the workplace setting.. The DSM-5 trait model was ultimately relegated to Section III of the manual (Emerging Measures and Models) and the categorical system of classifying personality disorders from the DSM-IV was retained. Delaying full ...
This paper reviews current findings in the human aggression and antisocial behaviour literature and those in the animal abuse literature with the aim of highlighting the overlap in conceptualisation. The major aim of this review is to highlight that the co-occurrence between animal abuse behaviours and aggression and violence toward humans can be logically understood through examination of the research evidence for antisocial and aggressive behaviour. From examination through this framework, it is not at all surprising that the two co-occur. Indeed, it would be surprising if they did not. Animal abuse is one expression of antisocial behaviour. What is also known from the extensive antisocial behaviour literature is that antisocial behaviours co-occur such that the presence of one form of antisocial behaviour is highly predictive of the presence of other antisocial behaviours. From such a framework, it becomes evident that animal abuse should be considered an important indicator of antisocial behaviour
The assessment of psychopathy in children and adolescents is a very important area of research and it is still in its infancy. There seems to be reasonable evidence that juvenile psychopathy shows similar correlates (e.g. aggression, neurocognitive deficits, substance misuse) to adult psychopathy. Our knowledge about the nature, stability and consequences of juvenile psychopathy, however, is still very limited. There have been no published longitudinal studies of the stability of psychopathy as assessed by any of the current measures and it remains unclear to what degree the antisocial behavioural items that contribute to the psychopathy label change over time, given what we know about adolescent-limited antisocial behaviours. The limited data on the psychometric properties of current instruments, particularly information on recommended or specific cut-off scores for prototypical psychopathy, suggest that it is premature to assign this label to younger cohorts. For this reason many researchers ...

The chosen media article does provide a rational, albeit evidently simplistic account of the possible neurological deficits providing an explanation for the actions and behaviour of James Holmes. Dvorsky approaches the target audience successfully in an appropriate manner giving simplified accounts of three possible neurological explanations with relative depth and avoiding excessive use of scientific jargon. To analyze the quality of information it is also relevant to note that the writer is not an expert within the field of neuroscience, therefore questioning the reliability of the information provided. The interpretation of current scientific knowledge within the article is fairly accurate, well researched with dense coverage concerning psychopathy and schizophrenia and to a lesser extent, brain damage. For example, in terms of psychopathy, the author mentions the Hare Psychopathy Checklist Revised PCL-R (Hare, 2003), accurately describing its use to classify individuals as psychopaths and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Increased Testosterone-to-Cortisol Ratio in Psychopathy. AU - Glenn, Andrea L.. AU - Raine, Adrian. AU - Schug, Robert A.. AU - Gao, Yu. AU - Granger, Douglas A.. PY - 2011/5. Y1 - 2011/5. N2 - Only a few studies have examined hormones in psychopathy, and results have been mixed. It has been suggested that because hormone systems are highly interconnected, it may be important to examine multiple systems simultaneously to gain a clearer picture of how hormones work together to predispose for a certain construct. In the present study, we attempt to clarify the role of the hormones cortisol and testosterone in psychopathy by examining both hormones in a community sample of 178 adults demonstrating a wide range of psychopathy scores. Results showed that psychopathy scores were associated with an increased ratio of testosterone (baseline) to cortisol responsivity to a stressor. Psychopathy was not associated with either of these measures independently or with baseline cortisol levels. ...

A growing literature has sought to extend the psychopathy construct to youth [1-4]. In one approach to doing so, Lynam [1] proposed locating the future psychopath within the current childhood diagnostic nomenclature. He hypothesized that children high in both hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity (HIA), as exemplified in attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and conduct problems (CP), as exemplified in a diagnosis of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) or conduct disorder (CD), define a subgroup afflicted with a particularly virulent strain of conduct disorder--what he described as "fledgling psychopathy." In a subsequent test of his model, Lynam [5] found initial support for his predictions. Categorizing a high-risk sample of boys into four groups as a function of their standing on HIA and CP, Lynam found that boys high in both HIA and CP could be reliably distinguished from the other boys (low HIA/low CP, HIA-only, and CP-only) using measures of psychopathic personality, ...
I am a psychiatrist and have spent my life helping people overcome severe depression. While in practice, I became frustrated by the fact that many people with depression also have addiction. Although excellent biological and psychological treatments for depression exist, addiction makes the treatment of depression very difficult. My personal mission is to reduce the impact of addiction and antisocial behavior on families. To do this, I have devoted myself toward the prevention of mental illness and addiction. Recently, I have authored a book called Just Like His Father? Please review the material found at http://www.parentingtheat riskchild.com. Many psychiatric disorders including addiction and antisocial personality, are genetically transmitted in families. Just Like His Father? is about how to parent a child to overcome genetic risk for ADHD, addiction and antisocial personality disorder ...
Some individuals who sustain damage to the frontal lobes exhibit behavioural similarities to psychopaths, such as poor long-term planning, shallow affect, aggressiveness, low tolerance for frustration and impulsivity. However, research has not found brain damage in diagnosed psychopaths.. Nurture: Psychopathic Traits May Be Exacerbated by Abuse. It is now well-known that those who are abused and traumatized in childhood are more likely to abuse others in adulthood (though it should be noted that the majority of abuse victims break the cycle and do not go on to become perpetrators). Unfortunately, this has made it easier for psychopaths to do what they do best-play on the sympathies of others-by claiming to have suffered abusive childhoods. But psychopaths are just as likely to have come from loving, nurturing homes as from abusive ones, and many abused children do not grow up to be psychopaths.. Although abuse can worsen existing psychopathic traits, it does not cause psychopathy. However, it ...
AIMS: To examine the direction of causation between young peoples antisocial behaviour and alcohol (mis)use in the longer and shorter term, together with their joint effects on alcohol-related trouble. METHODS: A longitudinal study (2586 pupils) supplied data, allowing exploration of the causal effects of alcohol (mis)use and antisocial behaviour between ages 11 and 15, using structural equation models of longer and shorter-term relationships and joint-effects models in respect of alcohol-related trouble at age 15. This method allowed us to evaluate which of three hypotheses, described as disinhibition [alcohol (mis)use causes or facilitates antisocial behaviour], susceptibility [antisocial behaviour causes alcohol (mis)use] or reciprocal [alcohol (mis)use causes antisocial behaviour and the reverse] receives most support, both overall and by gender, social class, and drinking context. RESULTS: Overall, the results support the susceptibility hypothesis, particularly in the longer-term ...
The word "psychopath" is often applied (correctly or incorrectly) to people who act in ways contrary to rational or moral guidelines in society. This includes anti-social, cri…minal, or violent behavior. The term "psychopath" is used by medical professionals who believe the mental illness these people have is caused by neurological, social, and environmental conditions. Those who emphasize the social influences use the term "sociopath". The Fourth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-IV) calls the condition "Antisocial Personality Disorder". The equivalent overseas is Dissocial Personality Disorder. They are people whose peculiar and dysfunctional brain wave patterns and structure of the cerebral cortex cause them to fail to be socialized while growing up. Although they can be intelligent, they tend to find school extremely difficult and dont tend to be organized enough to do well at jobs. Since they are usually hostile, sometimes ...
Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) is a condition characterised by a persistent pattern of disregard for the rights of others manifesting prior to age 15 as conduct disorder then continuing into adulthood. A core feature of ASPD is an elevated and persistent pattern of impulsive aggression, which places those with the condition at increased risk for criminal offending leading to increased risk for incarceration and recidivism, presenting a significant burden on society and the criminal justice system.1 As such, ASPD is highly overrepresented in offender populations with upwards of 40% of inmates meeting diagnostic criteria.1,2 ASPD is highly heritable with estimates of heritability reaching as high as (h2 = 0.80).3 Considering the pervasive pattern of impulsive aggression emerging early in life among antisocial populations, convergent genetic and environmental risk factors in early childhood are strongly suggested to contribute to impaired ability to suppress aggressive behaviour.4,5 Risk ...
This module will provide an in-depth understanding of environmental and neurobiological factors implicated in the development and maintenance of severe antisocial and violent behaviours throughout the lifespan. The course will focus on a number of psychiatric disorders in childhood (e.g., Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder) and adulthood (e.g., Antisocial Personality Disorder, Psychopathy) associated with antisocial and violent behaviours.. In discussing theoretical perspectives on different disorders, there will be an emphasis on the dynamic interplay between genetic, neurobiological, psychological, social, cognitive, emotional, and environmental influences (i.e., multiple levels of analysis). The role of a number environmental (e.g., childhood maltreatment, nutrition, smoking during pregnancy) and neurobiological factors (e.g., genes, brain functioning and lesions, autonomic nervous system) will be discussed and how their interactions can increase risk for antisocial and violent ...
I too had an adoptive daughter who displayed similar behaviour. She is grown up now and we are estranged. But I feel she suffered from the traumatic seperation age three from her mother. She held this anger and pain with in. Social workers do not seem to get it that some children cope fine but others never recover and offering these children for adoption is like a time bomb. The trouble is who can diagnose which children will be ok. Who would wish to write off a sweet little four year old as a fledling psychopath? These children need special care with people who are aware of their suffering and personalities and who can warn others and try to engage with the children themselves. I never got help for my child. I tried to understand on my own and this has damaged all of us. Still I now understand much about dysfunctional families and children and this has helped me. Knowledge is the key. I feel these children thrive on our ignorance they go under the radar. Once they are grown they will not ...
Part of the answer is that the oddities are subtle so that our general listening mode will not normally pick them up. But my own experience is that some of the "skipped" or oddly arranged words, or misused words are automatically reinterpreted by OUR brains in the same way we automatically "fill in the blank" space on a neon sign when one of the letters has gone out. We can be driving down the road at night, and ahead we see M_tel, and we mentally put the "o" in place and read "Motel." Something like this happens between the psychopath and the victim. We fill in the "missing humanness" by filling in the blanks with our own assumptions, based on what WE think and feel and mean. And, in this way, because there are these "blank" spots, we fill them in with what is inside us, and thus we are easily convinced that the psychopath is a great guy - because he is just like us! We have been conditioned to operate on trust, and we always try to give the "benefit of the doubt." So, there are blanks, we ...

Psychasthenic psychopathy is a kind of a psychopathy with prevalence in patient character of irritable delicacy, lowered self-rating, self-distrust.. There is a congenital predisposition. Also development of this type of a psychopathy is promoted by misaducation (the acquired psychopathy): excessive guardianship of seniors, desire of parents to control the childs acts, underestimation of his own opportunities, belittling of child abilities.. Psychasthenic psychopathy symptoms People suffering from psychasthenic psychopathy are shy, easily vulnerable, self-distrusting. They dont estimate adequately their opportunities and so are inclined to recheck constantly their actions for the sake of achievement of the best result, never remain pleased with results of their activity. Indecision is inherent to them, such people are completely deprived of passion and possess excessive care, forsee the actions on many steps forward, minimizing risk of negative result. These persons are distinguished by ...

Glib and Superficial. Psychopaths are often voluble and verbally facile. They can be amusing and entertaining conversationalists, ready with a clever comeback, and are able to tell unlikely but convincing stories that cast themselves in a good light. They can be very effective in presenting themselves well and are often very likable and charming. One of my raters described an interview she did with a prisoner: "I sat down and took out my clipboard," she said, "and the first thing this guy told me was what beautiful eyes I had. He managed to work quite a few compliments on my appearance into the interview, so by the time I wrapped things up, I was feeling unusually… well, pretty. Im a wary person, especially on the job, and can usually spot a phony. When I got back outside, I couldnt believe Id fallen for a line like that.". Egocentric and Grandiose. Psychopaths have a narcissistic and grossly inflated view of their own self-worth and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of ...
An inverse correlation between psychopathic traits and autonomic nervous system responsiveness has been observed in various neuroscience and psychological studies. Past research has suggested that low resting heart rate is a robust biological risk factor for a number of psychopathic traits over the course of an individuals lifetime. The reason for the link between heart rate and psychopathy is presently unknown, but it has been hypothesized that a number of other social, biological, or psychological factors, including parenting techniques, socioeconomic status, and peer influences, may influence the strength of this relationship. However, further study is needed to examine specific social factors which may be of value in this relationship and which aspects of those relationships, if any might have the most impact on psychopathic traits. The goal of this study is to further explore the possible moderating effect an individuals relationship quality with parents may have on the relationship between

Childhood seems to represent an important timeline of vulnerability. Previous research indicates that first symptoms of many adult psychopathologies such as depression, anxiety, antisocial personality disorders, etc. can already be observed in early childhood. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the dynamics that lead to maladaptive development, known to pose various challenges on individuals, families, and society. Biological embedding is seen as one underlying mechanism. In this process, early childhood adversities are assumed to result in enduring changes in systems responsible for the physiological stability of an organism, which then may have detrimental consequences for the physical and mental health.. The aim of the present thesis was to provide a different perspective on adaptive child development, and how it is influenced by various risk and protective factors. Moreover, it aims to contribute to a better understanding of underlying biological mechanisms, investigating the ...
Experience shapes neural circuits in the brain. This review explores current research in neuroscience on experience-dependent synapse formation in mice. Studies using the chessboard trimming paradigm are analyzed to provide information on the effects of partial versus complete deprivation. The resulting formation of transient spines and new persistent spines indicates the impact experience has on shaping neural pathways. Research on long-term sensory deprivation in the adolescent and adult somatosensory cortex indicates that once brain pathways are established in adulthood, they are difficult to change. Together these findings are applied to the questions presented in the literature of developmental psychopathology, such as the implications of spine growth and elimination in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder. Future research is limited by the ethical concerns of imaging dendritic spines in humans; however, the findings outlined in this review hold speculative

It wasnt long before she started trying to corner me at the office and talk about sex. She would be talking about something innocent and suddenly tell me she was good in bed, or that she liked to look at mens peniss and watch them masturbate. She blatantly propositioned me on more than one occasion. Each time she would pull this, I would quit what I was doing and leave. I thought surely she would realize I wasnt interested. But she never stopped. I started trying to completely avoid her. No matter how many times I stopped her, Stephanie continued to get worse and worse.
