Fair enough.  Shall we accept there was some misunderstanding between us and move on?

So it seems from Dr Fallon and Prof Baron-Cohen that psychopathy ie erosion or lack of empathy (inability to feel the pain of another) is caused by certain genes but those that go on to commit anti-social acts have usually suffered abuse/neglect too so in effect it is gene environment interaction?

That's about the size of it.

As the debate is about JB v SC I guess we need to consider what a brain scan from SC might reveal.  Although as per the experts quoted in this thread it seems psychopathy is caused by carrying certain genes and being exposed to an environment of abuse and neglect. 

I think the problem is abuse and neglect conjures up low-socio economic families or single parents leading chaotic lives not middle class families like the Bambers where one or both parents suffer a mental illness and possibly emotional problems eg linked to their infertility.  Until I see some evidence to the contrary I will continue to believe SC was adversely affected by June's mental illness circa 1959.

This thread is about why Bamber has campaigned to say he isn't a psychopath Holly

Yes and many of the posts make ref to brain scans including your post #1.  Given the whole hub of the debate is JB or SC are you saying my posts above are unrelated to the thread and off-topic?
