Abstract

The phenomenon of violence which has been seen in all historical ages is a behavioral pathology and has increased in various communities and time and has never been exactly handled. Communities usually deal with the results instead of investigating the reasons of the violence and often tend towards to the treatment solutions with palliative methods, and try to suppress and prevent violence through various laws and criminal procedures. However, instead of focusing on the palliative methods, reasons of violence need to be investigated with scientific studies and new treatment methodologies need to be developed. This project has been suggested by a student who is a medical doctor candidate in order to contribute to the solution of the violence issue. The mechanisms of "neural plasticity depending on learning" forms the basis of this hypothesis Therefore, the possibility of creating cognitive and behavioral changes in humans with the learning methods that may lead to neuroplasticity, has been reviewed in the related literature. Additionally, the efficiency of this type of learning methods in preventing the violence and the ethical issues were discussed.
