    Where evil lurks: Neurologist discovers 'dark patch' inside the brains of killers and rapists

    Dr Roth said no two criminals are alike. He divides them into three groups for the purposes of his hunt for evil.

    The first he classifies as 'psychologically healthy,' people who grow up in an environment where it is 'OK to beat, steal and murder'.

    The second type is the mentally disturbed criminal who looks at his world as threatening.

    'A wrong look, one false move, he can explode and become a killer,' he said.

    The third group are pure psycopaths, a group in which tyrants such as Hitler and Stalin belong.


    The first would be most criminals. The second would be someone like Seung-Hui Cho or Adam Lanza. The third would be obviously Hitler and Stalin. I would include someone like Osama bin Laden, Eric Harris, and Casey Anthony.

    From what I remember from neuroanatomy classes each brain hemisphere has a frontal lobe, a parietal lobe, a temporal lobe and an occipital lobe.

    Also, X-rays have nothing to do with measuring the brain waves or emotions. The brain scan they have chosen as illustration in the story is not an X-ray image. There is some kind of a pencil shaped artefact on that scan.
