This Funzing Experience:

Join an experienced Forensics Lecturer to explore and gain insights into criminal behaviour, including:

  • Is there such a thing as 'Natural Born Killers'? Jennifer will review the evidence for neuroscience, genetics and hormones having a role to play, including the scientific literature on what you can really tell about someone just by looking at them.

  • Control-Balance Theory – explore the cases of Jeffery Dahmer, Vlad the Impaler, Harold ‘Dr. Death’ Shipman, Ed Gein and corporate corruption.

  • Exploring Other factors – the role of IQ (watch the Dating Game Killer in action), education, gender (and that time of the month!), the weather, and the effect of alcohol and drugs.
