Interesting study.

Interesting study.

Though the Neuroscience part might be relatively new, the study of criminal minds by psychiatrists, psychologists, criminologists, and pathologists had been in place for more than a century. For example, Jean Alexandre Eugène Lacassagne, a French pathologist digged deep into details in the latter part of 19th century by using the method of studying "criminal autobiographies".

When it comes to risk taking and criminal intent, it is a highly interconnected topic that depends on variables such as, environment (social, economic and financial) , level of risk, upbringing, local culture, educational level, rule of law to name a few.

Risky behavior of an individual could also change over time with more awareness across various areas coming with experience, and worldly exposure.

For that matter, even driving a bike could be considered a risky proposition by some, whereas it would be the common transportation means in some parts of the world.

Does it mean that risk taking would not result in criminal intent?

Potentially, yes.

For example, if a person makes an overstretched bet on something, and fails, then it could set a vicious loop, especially, if the person fails to admit the mistake, and continues with the old practices. In a way, it is a vital reason for repeated stock market crashes, real estate crashes to name a few.
