Jim Fallon: Natural Born Killer?

Synopsis
Neuroscientist Jim Fallon uncovered the defining characteristics of the ‘serial killer brain’, only to discover he too had the brain and genes of what he calls a ‘really bad news character’. So why wasn’t Fallon a killer? This film explores this question, illuminating the neurological and genetic bases of aggression, nature/nurture and epigenetics along the way and giving a new angle on the question of whether what happens in early childhood can send us towards deviance or conformity.
