A biological defect in the way blood flows in the brain rather than a psychological defect could be one reason why some people become criminal psychopaths, a new study shows. Researchers from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London monitored the emotional responses of six men who had committed repeat offenses such as attempted murder, rape with strangulation and grievous bodily harm. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6198704.stm http://www.abc.net.au/science/news/stories/2006/1803469.htm?health How do we tackle them? What is the best punishment for them?

psychopathy to me is simply the inability to empathise with anyone therefore it is learning that is at fault rather tghan the brain

The latest research shows that the inability to empathize is related to structural fault in brain, that is they are not capable of learning. In fact you have much more experience as you teach to this kind of people. Are you able to connect to them? Do they feel guilty?

I agree, but if they have faulty brains, it is going to be difficult till we do brain transplant.
