Criminal minds

The Victorian phrenologists claimed they could tell a criminal from a law-abiding citizen by the contours of their skull. In the age of brain scans and theories of criminal psychopathy are we any further on?


The Victorian phrenologists claimed they could tell a criminal from a law-abiding citizen by the contours of their skull. In the age of brain scans and theories of criminal psychopathy are we any further on? Here we consider whether there really is a difference in mentality between the criminal minority and the law-abiding majority and how this might inform our theories of mental illness.

Annie Bartlett is currently Clinical Director of the Forensic Services at Springfield Hospital and also Course Director at St George’s Hospital Medical School in Forensic Mental Health. Her research interests include the study of secure institutions, gender issues in forensic psychiatry, gay and lesbian issues in mental health and the relationship of social exclusion to mental health problems.
