Brain Gray Matter Volume Different In Males With Violent Behavior History

Brain Gray Matter Volume Different In Males With Violent Behavior History

Brain scans have revealed that males with a history of violent behavior have more gray matter in certain parts of the brain, while those with a substance abuse disorder have less, researchers from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, revealed in Archives of General Psychiatry.

They wrote:
"The interpretation of studies of the brain morphology of violent offenders is further limited by the fact that most of these men present with a substance use disorder (SUD). Thus, teasing apart alterations in brain structure associated with persistent violent behavior and those associated with SUDs presents an ongoing challenge."
