The primary object of our research is to understand the development of aggressive antisocial behavior (AAB) over the lifespan. In particular, we study the longitudinal development of AAB from young children up to old age, how it presents and interact with mental health development, neurocognition, somatic health and general adaptive processes. Our research is conducted within the field of forensic psychiatry, drawing on theory and methods from several disciplines, including developmental psychopathology, epidemiology, cognitive neuroscience and psychophysiology.
