Children With Early Signs Of Psychopathy Show No Remorse To Pain

Children With Early Signs Of Psychopathy Show No Remorse To Pain | Clinical Psychology | Scoop.it

Using brain scans, researchers found no empathy in children with conduct problems when shown images of others in pain.

 

Their brain scans revealed little response from the bilateral anterior insula, anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), and inferior frontal gyrus. The ACC is particularly responsible for regulating reasoning functions, including empathy, impulse control, and emotion. Past studies show that the bilateral anterior insula exhibits weak responses to emotional faces following alcohol consumption, while the inferior frontal gyrus holds what's called Broca's Area, which is normally damaged in non-fluent aphasiacs or individuals who struggle with getting words out and speak in short sentences.
