    Teenage anti-social behaviour caused by 'brain abnormality' - Daily Mail

    Antisocial behaviour in teenagers may be due to brain abnormalities that cause them to be aggressive, according to a new study.

    Scientists have discovered that teens with a psychiatric condition known as ‘conduct disorder’ have an abnormal pattern of brain activity compared with those without the condition.

    Conduct disorder leads to a high level of aggressive and antisocial behaviour and affects five teenagers in every 100 in the UK.
