AbstractWith the ongoing accumulation of decades’ worth of research, biosocial criminology continues to provide theoretical and empirical contributions to the study of human behavior. While many earlier examples of empirical research in biosocial criminology were relatively focused, more recent research has widened the range of topics, theories, and methods included in examinations. The papers presented in this panel are reflective of such expansions. Employing a variety of samples and methodologies the papers in this panel address topics such as the association between victimization and substance use, the etiological underpinnings of intimate partner violence, the effects of cognitive abilities on correctional treatment, and the influence of Moffitt’s maturity gap hypothesis on delinquency and substance use in a genetically sensitive model. The presenters focus both on how their papers contribute to a biosocial perspective on human behavior and to criminology overall.
