  • Bad Brain

    Is this the first time that a murderer's brain was examined in this fashion ?

    MURDERER'S BRAIN EXAMINED-



    Berlin, Monday;

    Peter Kurten, thc Dusseldorf Jack the Ripper, was executed at Cologne. Ten minutes afterwards three eminent scientists examined his brain in an endeavour to probe the secret of the criminal impulse of the world's worst murderer. The body was sent to Berlin where scientists will analyse the organs to search for abnormal conditions which may account for his diabolical crimes.

        Hi Howard

        I'm pretty sure the removal and examination of the brains of criminals was practiced long before Kurten

        I'll try and find some examples

          Lombroso examined the brain of a murderer and rapist in 1876

          I came across this article which will be of particular interest to Jeff in that it discusses comparisons between the behaviour of psychotics and psychopaths
