Deficits in response inhibition and heightened impulsivity have been linked to psychiatric disorders and aggression. They have been investigated in clinical groups as well as individuals with trait characteristics, yielding insights into the underlying neural and behavioral mechanisms of response inhibition and impulsivity. The motor inhibition tasks(More)

Up to now, it remains unclear how monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), which has been repeatedly linked to aggression, affects brain activity within resting-state networks (RSN). Here, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to test whether the MAOA genotype might influence activity within the common RSN. Our results demonstrate that during rest,(More)
Results of meta-analyses suggested subtle deficits in cognitive control among antisocial individuals. Because almost all studies focused on children with conduct problems or adult psychopaths, however, little is known about cognitive control mechanisms among the majority of persistent violent offenders who present an antisocial personality disorder (ASPD).(More)
