8) Gender gap and heart rate
Although it is well established that males engage in more crime compared with females, little is known about what accounts for the gender gap. In this study, the hypothesis that a low resting heart rate partly mediates the relationship between gender and crime is tested. A low resting heart rate partially mediated the relationship between gender and all types of adult criminal offending, including violent and nonviolent crime. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1745-9125.12138/full
