Maj. Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 in a 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas. In the almost four years since that event, 16 more mass shootings have occurred in the United States, with fatalities ranging from four to 28, according to data compiled by Mother Jones.

Each such event inevitably begets the question: What motivates killers? What can turn a person to such an act of violence? A 2009 TED talk by neuroscientist Jim Fallon may hold one of the keys to the enduring mystery of human violence.

Fallon explains that after examining the brains of around 70 psychopathic killers, certain common traits became evident — every single brain showed signs of damage. Fallon was even able to pinpoint a specific area where murderers had experienced trauma: the orbital cortex. Furthermore, he found that the age at which the damage occurred was also a sign of whether someone would become a killer or not.

Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford Played Dead After Being Shot At Fort Hood

A soldier who was repeatedly shot during the Fort Hood shooting rampage says he played dead before realizing the gunman might notice he was sweating.

Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford testified Tuesday during the opening day of the trial for Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is accused of killing 13 people.

Alonzo told jurors he panicked when he saw Hasan was holding a weapon inside a building where soldiers were preparing to deploy in November 2009.

Alonzo says he tried to appear dead after being shot, then later decided to flee because, “dead men don’t sweat.”

He says soldiers were trying to push their way out of a double-door exit, but one door was locked shut, so it created a bottleneck.

Nidal Malik Hasan: ‘The Evidence Will Clearly Show That I Am The Shooter’

The Army psychiatrist who faces the death penalty for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood has told jurors that “the evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter.”

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan on Tuesday began his court martial with opening statements that lasted less than two minutes. He told jurors: “The evidence presented during the trial will only show one side.”

The 42-year-old Hasan had wanted to argue that he shot U.S. troops to protect Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. But the judge forbade the American-born Muslim from using that defense.

Hasan was shot in the back during the rampage and was paralyzed from the waist down.
