Anti Social Behaviour? It’s All In The Mind.

A study published by the Journal Of Child Psychology and Psychiatry has uncovered findings that the brains of girls displaying anti social behaviour are significantly different to their better behaved friends.

The same link has also been found in a similar study of teenage boys.

The study found that the amygdale (a part of the brain) was significantly smaller in boys and girls who displayed behavioural abnormalities. There is hope that by using brain scans early in a childs life, the risk of behavioural problems may be stopped before they even emerge. This could be done through offering counselling at an early stage.
