Why do people behave antisocially? Insights from neuroscience
11:00-11:45

Attempts to explain the roots of antisocial behaviour championed by criminologists and social psychologists have often focussed on environmental influences, personality traits and social learning theory. Recent advances in the field of neuroscience, however, have led to the emergence of a fresh perspective in which antisocial behaviours are linked to the functioning of specific brain circuits.

We warmly invite everyone with an interest in neuroscience, the brain and how it works, to come and join us for this free public talk.
