    • Suzanne,

      Thank you for your suggestion of placing Professor Fallon’s presentation on the OLLI blog. I’ll forward your idea to the UClub Forum Developer.

      February 12: James Fallon, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy & Neurobiology and Psychiatry & Human Behavior, UCI. “Imagine Finding Out –at Age 65 — Who You Really Are.” Dr. Fallon studies the genetic makeup of murderers. Ironically, a PET scan and genetic analysis he underwent revealed the biological makeup of an aggressive, non-empathetic person — a psychopath. How germane is our knowledge of genetics, epigenetics and brain function to our beliefs about violence?
