Abstract:

This program seeks to determine if there is a physical source behind people's moral impulses and whether notorious psychopaths, clearly deficient in morality, are in actuality "born bad." Are You Good or Evil? uses brain scans to compare and contrast the brains of law-abiding and criminal adults; considers brain scan evidence suggesting that psychopaths have abnormalities in the part of the brain that deals with emotions and impulses; and shows how scientific assessments of brain scans and upbringing can be combined to predict the likelihood of whether a child will grow up to be a criminal. The video also speculates as to whether a plea of "defective moral hardwiring" could be used as a defense in court.
