Researchers at the University of Haifa in Israel suggest that therapy used to treat frontal brain injuries could also benefit psychopathic patients.

"Seeing as psychopathic behavior is similar to that of a person with brain damage, it could be that it could benefit from similar forms of treatment," study author Dr. Simone Shamay-Tsoory said in a news release.
