Course Description: Psychopathy is characterized by grandiosity, callousness, and manipulativeness combined with a lack of remorse, empathy, and guilt. It is often comorbid with conduct disorder (CD) and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Neuroimaging studies have recently been conducted to explore various brain areas in individuals presenting with psychopathic traits. Researchers found that psychopathy was associated with numerous neuroanatomical abnormalities. Structural and functional irregularities involving the limbic and paralimbic systems appear to be associated with core psychopathic features. Researchers further posit that ASPD and psychopathy stem from biological processes.
