What are the long-term implications of an underdeveloped prefrontal cortex?
An underdeveloped frontal cortex can lead someone to exhibit traits such as the lack of ability to focus, poor decision-making skills, memory, planning, impulsiveness, problem-solving, and reasoning skills. These skills are crucial to the proper development of the brain and aid in carrying out everyday and long-term tasks such as planning for your future and educational goals. The failure to properly utilize the prefrontal cortex can lead to criminal activity or psychopathic tendencies.

What criminology theories could be applied to the rising epidemic of increased crime rates in the United States?
In terms of theory, strain theory could be applied to explain why people are committing more crimes because of the lack of opportunity for the lower-class to advance in society. We consistently restrict their needs and wants to move out of the lifestyle that they are in and only offer an easy way out, which is criminal activity. Also, labeling theory can attest to the rising crime rate in the U.S. because of the failure of societal acceptance and transition into the real-world post-release from prison. Ex-felons will forever carry around the label of "felon" that follows them everywhere and hinders their opportunities for jobs, financial assistance, school, housing, and voting rights.
