Antisocial people could have smaller areas of the brain. Criminals' brains are different from the brains of non-criminals. Researchers looked at 672 people aged seven to 26. At the age of 45, the researchers scanned their brains. Eighty of them were antisocial from their early teens. Areas of their brain were smaller.

The research could help doctors understand antisocial behaviour. People may behave badly because of their brain size. A researcher said it was a kind of disability and we needed to be kinder to these people. Another researcher said doctors could help to stop antisocial behaviour. She said these people needed more support.

Back to the brain size lesson.
