Abstract

Many biological variables have also been shown to be related to offending. The causal link between executive functioning and crime appears to be centered upon neuropsychological deficits. It is these neuropsychological deficits that criminologists have uncovered that are so closely related to one’s propensity for crime through such constructs as self-control. It seems clear that multidisciplinary collaboration is needed to advance knowledge about the causes of offending. Ideally, leading biological, psychological, sociological, and criminological researchers should hold a series of meetings to seek agreement on a general causal model, priorities in testing specific theories derivable from it, key variables to be measured, common instrumentation to be used, key design features, and common analytic methods.
