Synopsis by Alice Day
Are certain individuals wired to become violent criminals? Or do environmental factors cause aberrant behavior? Could it be a combination of both? In Ultrascience 2: Born to be Bad, scientists explore the intricate structure of the brain in order to understand why people are driven to acts of unspeakable violence. Using technologies only recently developed, researchers are able to look into previously unseen areas of brain function to determine the factors that might cause criminal tendencies. The Ultrascience 2 series presents modern developments in science aimed at a broad range of viewers.
