10/20: Analysis of “Serial Killers” The most effective aspect of this essay were the sources and studies. It was interesting to read about the genetic makeup of a possible serial killer and how most serial killers share the same traits. The study that was done on lab animals with the amygdala, was very interesting particularly because scientists used electric impulses which caused the violent behavior in animals. Showing us that there is a possibility that some sort of electrical impulse could trigger a violent behavior with a person as well. “79 percent of known serial killers test positive for these waves”- this shows us that there is a possibility that serial killers could have a defect with the amygdale. It also states that 15 percent of the general population has extremely unusual brainwaves. This essay establishes the writer’s credibility because it further explains the causes and effects of violent behavior in a serial killer. The essay includes support such as statistics for each cause and effect presented.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
