2. Significance of the Frontal Lobe

People with conduct disorder have damage to their frontal lobes, the part of the brain responsible for cognitive skills including problem-solving, judgment, and emotional behavior — essentially, it affects the personality of each individual and how they communicate. If the frontal lobe works improperly, people have difficulty learning from negative experiences and often act impulsively. Damage to that part of the brain can be inherited or caused by an injury.
