Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree the two pathologies are different, with different etiologies.  I disagree there is no neurological component/basis for sociopathic behavior.  There are clinical histories of patients with dysfunctional sociopathy who exhibited symptoms as children , before socialization and enculturation processes are complete.  

I went through this exact discussion about schizophrenia during the heyday of Behaviorism and Freud.  They pointed to "hundreds of studies from anthropology and psychology" proving (sic) Bateson's (et.al.) Double Bind Theory.  Doubt many people take it seriously in 2010.
