Speaker information

Professor Essi Viding, UCL Psychology and Language Sciences

Although childhood behavioural problems are relatively common, not all problems develop for the same reason, and only a few individuals will go on to develop psychopathy in adulthood. This lecture will review behavioural problems in children, in terms of genetics, brain function and development, and consider why some children may be at an increased risk of developing psychopathy when they grow up.
