Week FOUR
Biological Theories
Element of danger associate with it- more or less saying that there is born criminals
Now we have Socio-biological theories, study of biological factors that may make
some people at greater risk of committing a crime
Foundations
-Positivism (scientific method and empirical research).
-Cesare Lombroso (atavistic anomalies).
The Core Principles of Biosocial Theories
Genetic make-up contributes significantly to human behavior. Humans are not
created equal. Hormones (difference in testosterone/ men vs. women) (whoever
contested/ the situation your placed in might be the factor to higher testosterone).
A focus on brain functioning and mental processes. Learning, mood and behavioral
motivation are influenced by biochemistry and cellular interaction.
Instinct influences behavior. There is an innate human drive to possess and control
others.
The biosocial conditions combined with a social stressor that someone my engage in
criminal behavior.
Biochemical Factors and Crime
Vitamin and Mineral deficiencies.
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
Male hormone levels (the testosterone effect). High levels of testosterone: 1) lowers
resting arousal levels; 2) lowers brain seizure levels; 3) right-ward shift in
neocortical functioning.
Biochemical Factors and Crime
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).
Allergies.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
