Criminological theory dating back 100 years has been aware of the need to develop a neurobiology of extroversion, impulsivity, frontal-lobe dysfunction, and aggressive behaviour, yet in the 20th century criminologists have largely forsaken this psychobiological legacy.

This book looks at this legacy with reference to a variety of neurobiological methodologies. The authors are all researchers who have contributed considerably to their respective fields of psychiatry, psychology, psychobiology, and neuroscience.
