Abstract or Description

Neuroimaging studies on adult psychopaths have shown white matter abnormalities in fronto-temporal neural circuitry critical for emotional processing, but it is not known if children who show psychopathic tendencies exhibit white matter abnormalities. In this study, we found that boys with psychopathic tendencies showed decreased white matter concentration (WMC) compared with typically developing boys.
