In this cast Editor-in-Chief of the JCPP, Prof. Edmund Sonuga-Barke, is joined by Prof. Abigail Marsh of the Department of Psychology at Georgetown University and Dr.Graeme Fairchild from the School of Psychology, University of Southampton. The discussion focuses on the study by Marsh et al (2011) on ‘Adolescents with psychopathic traits reporting reductions in physiological responses to fear’ and the accompanying invited commentary article by Graeme Fairchild, provocatively entitled: ‘I don’t second that emotion’, which highlights the novel and important findings of the study of deficits in fear shown by adolescents with psychopathic traits.
