10 Facts About Psychopaths Discovered in UC Brain Scan Study

James Fallon, neuroscientist and professor of psychiatry and human behavior at the University of California at Irvine discovered that his brain scans showed he has psychopathic levels in the cerebral cortex associated with empathy, morality, and self-control.

Fallon, who adheres to the theory of nature v. nurture, commented: “Since finding all this out and looking into it, I’ve made an effort to try to change my behavior. I’ve more consciously been doing things that are considered ‘the right thing to do,’ and thinking more about other people’s feelings.”

Being conscious of his behavior, Fallon has learned to become someone else to function without anyone suspecting he is a psychopath.

During an Alzheimer’s study 8 years ago, Fallon found what he believed to be a relative’s brain scan that displayed definite psychopathic tendencies.

When Fallon further studied the scan, he found it was his own brain.

Fallon’s discovery supports theories that genetics plays a part in psychopathic behavior because he is related to 7 people who allegedly committed murder.

• A man who hanged himself after killing his mother
• Lizzie Borden
• The Cornell family

Fallon describes himself as “obnoxiously competitive [and] aggressive”; although he asserts that he would “rather beat someone in an argument than beat them up.”

Yet he attributes his loving up-bringing to his ability to quell his tendencies toward psychopathy.
