Crime Times is pleased to introduce in this issue Dr. Adrian Raine, a member of our highly distinguished Professional Advisory Board.

ADRIAN RAINE, D.PHIL., is a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Southern California, and an adjunct associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh's Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. He is the author of The Psychopathology of Crime (See Crime Times, Vol. 1, No. 4, Page 3), and Schizotypal Personality Disorder, as well as numerous articles in major journals.

Dr. Raine is the recipient of a Research Scientist Development Award from the National Institutes of Mental Health, which has allowed him to devote himself full-time to research on crime and violence. Currently he is collecting extensive long-term data on a sample of 1,995 subjects in Mauritius, in order to assess factors influencing criminal behavior, violence, and substance abuse. In addition, he is testing 500 15-year-old school boys in Pittsburgh on psychophysiological, neuropsychological, and hormonal measures, and comparing this data with data collected eight years earlier when the boys were seven years old.

Dr. Raine and fellow researchers also are using magnetic resonance imaging to investigate structural brain deficits in violent adult offenders.
