    Tin Man - Snap Classic

    A scientist studying the minds of psychopaths gets dangerously close. A father’s inability to recognize faces tests his relationships. And a brother is reunited with his North Korean sister for the first time in over five decades.

    You can look human and you can sound human... but what happens when you take a good hard look inside and realize... you're missing something?

    STORIES

    If I Only Had a Heart

    Glynn knows… sometimes the sum of the parts does not equal the hole.

    Produced by Pat Mesiti-Miller

    The Scientist and the Psychopath

    Neuroanatomist James Fallon, Ph.D. studies the most dangerous kind of person: the psychopath. His job is to get up close and personal with the mind of the psychopath so that we can better understand what makes them tick. He treats their brains with the cold calculation of a scientist at work. But in the process, things get mighty personal.

    James Fallon, Ph.D. is a neuroanatomist and geneticist at UC-Irvine. For more about his work and his own life, check out his book: The Psychopath Inside: A Neuroscientist's Personal Journey into the Dark Side of the Brain.
