Summary

This program studies the primal centers of the brain and the behaviours they control in order to gain an understanding of violence. Illustrating the role of brain chemicals like dopamine and seratonin as well as social conditioning that brings belligerence to the forefront, the film shows how violence is accepted, celebrated, or conveniently overlooked. Specific topics include sleep deprivation, the link between brain damage and domestic violence, the thought processes of convicted murderers, and a Bolivian village in which fist-fighting settles legal disputes.
