The Mind of a Dictator

James Fallon


2011 OFF in Oslo


James Fallon is an American neuroscientist specializing in consciousness, creativity, and the ways in which the brain relates to art, law, and violence. In his talk, Fallon took us on a fascinating tour of a hypothetical dictator’s brain. Since almost no studies have been conducted on the brain chemistry of tyrants, Fallon used tests performed on psychopaths, who share many of the same characteristics, as a foundation for his theories.
