Adrian Raine, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania and author of "Autonomy of Violence." He is a well know scholar exploring the connection between biology and crime. The following two videos give a visual glimpse into a biosocial perspective of crime. While research continues to show the link between biology and crime, it can also create new ethical questions concerning the accountability of crime.




Does knowing that a person's geneticmake-up or neuro capacity influencesa person's behavior impact how/if we hold a criminalaccountable for his or her actions? In other words, if a person's biology doesn't allow a person to make the right choice (a noncriminal one), how can we as a society hold that person accountable? Isthe action "truly" their choice? We usuallydon'thold kids or people with a diminishedcapacityto the same standards, so why would this be any different?

The investigation into the relationship between biology and criminality, as exemplified in the films above, raises important questions regarding the influence of a person's neurotypicality or genetic composition on their conduct and the ensuing consequences for holding people responsible for their deeds. Adrian Raine's talk on the topic explores the complex connection between criminal behaviour and genetics, which makes one think about the moral implications of determining guilt. The movies explain how biological variables interact to shape behaviour; they present research that links brain anatomy, genetics, and neural activity to criminal conduct predispositions (YouTube, 2014). Raine's...
