Ever wondered if you could have the makings of a movie killer? Dr James Fallon has spent years studying the distinct brain patterns in serial killers...and it gets pretty weird.

Fallon discovered that the orbital cortex is pretty important.

Low activity in this area makes desire suppression harder: violence, rage, sex and drinking will be controlled at sub-normal level.

Then, discovering he had EIGHT alleged killers in his family tree, Fallon scanned his own brain.

Fallon is even reportedly related to Lizzie Borden, accused of axing her family to death in 1882.

His brain matched almost EXACTLY with scans he'd taken of serial killer brains!

We can't exactly go home and scan our brains, but it makes you think...

Do you think you could have the brain of a movie serial killer?
