This chapter considers two systems that are fundamental to human behavior: learning and the allocation of attention. We review the evidence to suggest that there may be deficits in these systems in a subset of children with antisocial behavior problems—those with high levels of callous-unemotional traits—and explore how altered function of these systems might contribute to the development of immoral behavior.
