Title: Testing the Integrated Emotions Systems Model of Psychopahty
Authors: McIntosh, John
Supervisor(s): Bates, Timothy
Issue Date: 20-Jul-2009
Abstract: This study attempted to test the predictions of the Integrated Emotions System model as a candidate neurological mechanism behind the symptoms of Psychopathy. The experiment compared scores of the PPI to performance on a visual discrimination task with emotional and neutral distracters. The results showed no significant relationship between the psychopathy score and task performance. The study also compared the PPI Psychopathy score with Five Factor Model personality resemblance to the prototypical Psychopath as indexed by the PRI. A large correlation was found suggesting that Psychopathy can be defined using normal FFM personality dimensions.
