We use social information to guide our decisions, helping us to behave in ways that are socially acceptable. There is a large amount of individual variability in the inclination to comply with social rules and expectations. Individuals with psychopathic tendencies show a lack of guilt, empathic concern and a disregard for the impact of their decisions on others. However, we do not know how these characteristics relate to cognitive processes involved in reaching the decision to engage in an antisocial act. Dr Brazil will present new research on the link between psychopathic features and trial-by-trial interactions between multiple cognitive processes during social decision-making.
