You've heard of the fight or flight response. It can save your life when you're in danger, say, of being shot. It turns out, it may also be part of what can turn an angry teen into a school shooter. Scientists are finding that exposure to violence--and triggering that fight or flight reaction--actually alters the brain and can make a teenage boy, for instance, more likely to be violent himself. It's the roots of violence in the next installment in our Science Cafe series. Join the conversation Monday at nine .
