Abstract

In this paper a way to analyse psychopathy computationally is explored. This is done by creating and analysing a temporal-causal network model using a Network-Oriented Modeling approach. The network model was designed using knowledge from the field of Cognitive and Social Neuroscience and simulates the internal neural circuit assumed to play a role in the moral decision making process. Among others, empathy and fear are considered to affect the decision making. This model provides a basis for a virtual agent for simulation-based training or a support application for medical purposes.
