Some people may be genetically ill-equipped to cope with frustration or other emotional crises. The impairment of intelligence caused by chromosome defects may give rise to sociopathic behaviour in individuals. Neurotransmitters such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine may also play a role in provoking violent behaviour.
