There has been a split in opinion as to whether serial killers become (psychopaths) owing to their environment or DNA. Recently, scientists are placing substantial emphasis on biological factors, including low heart rates and other physiological factors. Brain scanning technology has shot to the central front where biological studies of serial killers are concerned. In his book, Anatomy of Violence, Adrian Raine makes a strong argument that a psychopath (including serial killers) inherit certain biological defects.
