Brain and Crime, Volume 197 reviews the relation between brain function and aggressive and rule-breaking (criminal) behavior.  The book's focus is on the violation of social rules and not on violation of regulations that are different in different counties. It discusses the development of this behavior from childhood into adulthood, along with the mechanisms associated with the risk for aggression and rule-breaking behavior.  In addition, it explores from a behavioral level concepts like psychopathology, syndrome and concepts from law, such as crime, defendant and offender. Finally, sections explore brain function, including emotion, cognitive processes, and decision-making.

From the perspective of brain structure, the book covers brain networks and brain disorders. In genetics, the book includes the influence of genes and the mechanisms of epigenetics. All chapters are intended to provide information for use in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders, and in assessment and prevention.
