Predisposed to Kill: The emerging field of neurocriminology

In the 2002 Steven Spielberg film Minority Report special police unit uses humans with precognition powers, or precogs, to prevent crimes before they happen.  The neuroscience of precognition would be an incredible topic to breach. This isn’t that. Instead, medical and technological advances have brought forth a much more exciting topic: neurocriminology - which has far reaching ethical implication for punishment, prevention and prediction of criminal behavior.
