heart rate and antisocial behavior

2013-05-01 23:53:20.764295+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

From this Slate quick review of a number of books, in the section about The Anatomy of Violence: The Biological Roots of Crime by Adrian Raine:

... there’s a stronger correlation between lower resting heart rate and antisocial behavior than between smoking and lung cancer.

My resting heart rate is sub 60, and I can kick all y'alls asses.

My dog's resting heart rate is also around 60. And yes, she has a tendency to bite strangers.
