Huge study, JAMA, teens, anti-social behaviors have reduced grey matter in amygdala, the insula and the pre-frontal cortex. We now need to search for why this is. Ideas?

I've been searching my brains out on what stunts the growth of get matter in the teen age brain. Found one....so far...will post in a poll, but the short answer is corporal punishment. Not saying it's the only cause.

I'd like to see the same study done on a valid, cross-section sample of the American public. Would it agree with this one?

1in 4 women and 1in 7 men experience extreme physical abuse, child abuse, and other exposures to violence may contribute. Genetic causes. .....????

Ok. I think child abusers waaaayyyy under reported. If you have followed my poll then read up on the 30,000,000 word gap...I think this one is top contender for what may be causing this.

No. I just found this place and found out how much I really wanted to talk to people about things I am deeply passionate about. Blog? I'm not very tech savvy.
