The Psychopath Inside: A Neuroscientist’s Personal Journey into the Dark Side of the Brain is James Fallon’s dramatic story of how his research led him to view his life and his scientific work in a new light. Part memoir, part scientific journey, his account of his discovery changes the kinds of questions we need to ask about nurture and nature; about the role of genes and the role of environment; and the long term effect of violence versus the power of supportive and nurturing parenting.
James Fallon is an award-winning neuroscientist and the Sloan, Fulbright, and National Institute of Health Scholar at the University of California, Irvine.
Joining us today on Medical Monday to discuss neurological issues, specifically the treatment and surgical interventions for epilepsy are Drs. Matthew Adamo and Timothy Lynch of Albany Medical Center.
Dr. Matthew Adamo specializes in general and pediatric neurosurgery, including surgical treatment for epilepsy, brain and spinal cord tumors, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries and congenital and developmental abnormalities, such as spina bifida.
