The Neurobiological and Psychosocial Implications of Psychopaths: A Review

Sahiti Ganduri


Abstract: Psychopathy is defined and understood as a personality disorder, classified as Antisocial Personality Disorder F60.2 by the International Classification of Disorders 10. The word ?psychopath? however, is making comebacks into modern culture, to define set standards about low-empathetic behaviour. Cultivation of various studies, infer that the part of the brain responsible for feelings of empathy fails to respond, when psychopaths see other people in pain (Decety J, Chen C, Harenski C and Kiehl KA (2013) . Recent studies show numerous new findings in the behaviour and neurological (functional and structural) features of psychopaths. Psychopathy is a symptom complex consisting of affective (emotional) deficits, interpersonal (interpersonal skills) deficits, and impulsive behaviors such as aggression, substance abuse, and chronic lying. This study aims to provide a detailed analysis of various researched findings of psychopathic behaviour. The findings from this study aims to provide a validated scope of understanding for future development in the field of antisocial personality disorder.
