S-16924 [(R)-2-[1-[2-(2,3-dihydro-benzo[1,4]dioxin-5-yloxy)-ethyl]- pyrrolidin-3yl]-1-(4-fluorophenyl)-ethanone], a novel, potential antipsychotic with marked serotonin1A agonist properties: III. Anxiolytic actions in comparison with clozapine and haloperidol. (1/2225)

S-16924 is a potential antipsychotic that displays agonist and antagonist properties at serotonin (5-HT)1A and 5-HT2A/2C receptors, respectively. In a pigeon conflict procedure, the benzodiazepine clorazepate (CLZ) increased punished responses, an action mimicked by S-16924, whereas the atypical antipsychotic clozapine and the neuroleptic haloperidol were inactive. Similarly, in a Vogel conflict paradigm in rats, CLZ increased punished responses, an action shared by S-16924 but not by clozapine or haloperidol. This action of S-16924 was abolished by the 5-HT1A antagonist WAY-100,635. Ultrasonic vocalizations in rats were inhibited by CLZ, S-16924, clozapine, and haloperidol. However, although WAY-100,635 abolished the action of S-16924, it did not affect clozapine and haloperidol. In a rat elevated plus-maze, CLZ, but not S-16924, clozapine, and haloperidol, increased open-arm entries. Like CLZ, S-16924 increased social interaction in rats, whereas clozapine and haloperidol were inactive. WAY-100,635 abolished this action of S-16924. CLZ, S-16924, clozapine, and haloperidol decreased aggressive interactions in isolated mice, but this effect of S-16924 was not blocked by WAY-100, 635. All drugs inhibited motor behavior, but the separation to anxiolytic doses was more pronounced for S-16924 than for CLZ. Finally, in freely moving rats, CLZ and S-16924, but not clozapine and haloperidol, decreased dialysis levels of 5-HT in the nucleus accumbens: this action of S-16924 was blocked by WAY-100,165. In conclusion, in contrast to haloperidol and clozapine, S-16924 possessed a broad-based profile of anxiolytic activity at doses lower than those provoking motor disruption. Its principal mechanism of action was activation of 5-HT1A (auto)receptors.  (+info)

Selective antiaggressive effects of alnespirone in resident-intruder test are mediated via 5-hydroxytryptamine1A receptors: A comparative pharmacological study with 8-hydroxy-2-dipropylaminotetralin, ipsapirone, buspirone, eltoprazine, and WAY-100635. (2/2225)

The present study characterized the effects of the novel, selective, and potent 5-hydroxytryptamine1A (serotonin) (5-HT1A) receptor agonist, alnespirone [S-20499, (S)-N-4-[5-methoxychroman-3-yl)propylamino)butyl- 8-azaspiro-(4,5)-diacetamide, hydrochloride] on offensive and defensive resident-intruder aggression in wild-type rats and compared its actions with those of the prototypical full 5-HT1A agonist 8-hydroxy-2- dipropylaminotetralin (8-OH-DPAT), the partial 5-HT1A agonists ipsapirone and buspirone, and the mixed 5-HT1A/1B agonist eltoprazine. All five agonists exerted effective dose-dependent decreases of offensive aggressive behavior in resident rats; 8-OH-DPAT was the most potent (ID50 = 0.074 mg/kg), followed by eltoprazine (0.24), buspirone (0.72), ipsapirone (1.08), and alnespirone (1.24). However, in terms of selectivity of the antiaggressive effects as determined by the absence of decrements in social interest and general motor activity, alnespirone appeared to be superior. In the defensive aggression test, neither alnespirone nor any of the other four agonists changed defensive behaviors in the intruder rats. The involvement of 5-HT1A receptors in the antiaggressive actions of these drugs was confirmed by showing that the selective 5-HT1A receptor antagonist WAY-100635 (N-[2-[4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1-piperazinyl]ethyl]-N-(2- pyridinyl)cyclohexanecarboxamide trihydrochloride), which was inactive alone, fully prevented the antiaggressive effects of alnespirone, 8-OH-DPAT, and buspirone and partly reversed those of ipsapirone and eltoprazine. The data clearly indicate that alnespirone effectively suppresses offensive aggression with an advantageous profile of action compared with other full or partial 5-HT1A agonists. These selective antiaggressive actions of alnespirone are mediated by stimulating 5-HT1A receptors, presumably the somatodendritic autoreceptors at the raphe nuclei. Furthermore, the data provide evidence for a major involvement of these 5-HT1A receptors in the modulation of aggressive behavior by 8-OH-DPAT, ipsapirone, buspirone, and eltoprazine.  (+info)

Measuring intermediate outcomes of violence prevention programs targeting African-American male youth: an exploratory assessment of the psychometric properties of six psychosocial measures. (3/2225)

This study examined the psychometric properties of six psychosocial measures that may be useful indicators of intermediate outcomes of violence prevention programs targeting African-American male youth. Baseline and 6 month follow-up survey data are used from 223 African-American male 12-16 year olds participating in a violence prevention program evaluation study. The constructs of interest are beliefs supporting aggression, aggressive conflict-resolution style, hostility, ethnic identity, self-esteem and hopelessness. Each construct is measured as a multi-item scale. Exploratory factor analysis results provided limited support for the unidimensionality of these scales, thus suggesting that further scale development is warranted. Reliability coefficients for the scales ranged from 0.55 to 0.80. Bivariate analyses with baseline data indicate that all six measures have construct and criterion-related validity, as they are associated with each other and with four behavioral criteria in the expected directions. Predictive validity was also demonstrated for beliefs supporting aggression, aggressive conflict-resolution style, hostility and hopelessness which were associated with weapon-carrying behaviors measured in the 6 month follow-up survey both before and after controlling for corresponding behaviors measured in the baseline survey.  (+info)

d,l-fenfluramine response in impulsive personality disorder assessed with [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography. (4/2225)

Reduced serotonergic activity has been associated with impulsive aggression in personality disordered patients in metabolite and pharmacologic challenge studies. This study used positron emission tomography to explore whether reduced serotonergic function occurs in critical brain regions such as orbital frontal and cingulate cortex that, may play a role in modulating aggression. Six impulsive-aggressive patients and five healthy volunteers were evaluated for changes in regional glucose metabolism after administration of the serotonergic releasing agent d,l-fenfluramine (60 mg, p.o.) or placebo. Volunteers demonstrated increases in orbital frontal and adjacent ventral medial frontal cortex, cingulate, and inferior parietal cortex, whereas impulsive-aggressive patients showed no significant increases in glucose metabolism after fenfluramine in any region. Compared with volunteers, patients showed significantly blunted metabolic responses in orbital frontal, adjacent ventral medial and cingulate cortex, but not in inferior parietal lobe. These results are consistent with reduced serotonergic modulation of orbital frontal, ventral medial frontal, and cingulate cortex in patients with impulsive-aggressive personality disorders.  (+info)

Side effects of extinction: prevalence of bursting and aggression during the treatment of self-injurious behavior. (5/2225)

Findings from basic and applied research suggest that treatment with operant extinction may produce adverse side effects; two of these commonly noted are an increase in the frequency of the target response (extinction burst) and an increase in aggression (extinction-induced aggression). Although extinction is often used to treat problem behavior in clinical settings, few applied studies have examined the prevalence of these side effects or their possible attenuation with other operant procedures. An analysis of 41 data sets for individuals who received treatment for self-injurious behavior indicated that extinction bursts or increases in aggression occurred in nearly one half of the cases. The prevalence of bursting and aggression was substantially lower when extinction was implemented as part of a treatment package rather than as the sole intervention.  (+info)

An evaluation of "informed consent" with volunteer prisoner subjects. (6/2225)

"Informed consent" sets a goal for investigators experimenting with human subjects, but little is known about how to achieve or evaluate it in an experiment. In a 3-year, double-blind study with incarcerated men, we attempted to provide a "free and informed consent" and evaluated our efforts with an unannounced questionnaire administered to subjects after they completed the experiment. At that time, approximately two-thirds had sufficient information for an informed consent, but only one-third was well informed about all key aspects of the experiment and one-third was insufficiently informed to give an informed consent. We found that institution- or study-based coercion was minimal in our experiment. From our evaluation of the questionnaire and experience at the study institution, we conclude that an experiment with human subjects should be designed to include an ongoing evaluation of informed consent, and active attempts should be made to avoid or minimize coercive inducements. Experiments with significant risk, which require a long duration and/or large sample size relative to the institution's population, should probably not be performed on prisoner subjects. The experimenter should be independent of the penal institution's power structure. Presenting and explaining a consent form to volunteers on one occasion is probably an in adequate procedure for obtaining and maintaining an informed consent.  (+info)

Practical approaches to reduce the impact of bullying. (7/2225)

Bullying has serious long term consequences for all concerned. The cost of ignoring bullying is great, and it is no longer acceptable to view bullying as a normal part of everyday life that children have to learn to tolerate. Effective strategies exist to reduce the frequency of bullying and to make this type of aggressive behaviour less likely to occur.  (+info)

Emotional stress and characteristics of brain noradrenaline release in the rat. (8/2225)

We have investigated several characteristics of the rat brain noradrenaline (NA) release caused by various stressful situations. Stresses such as immobilization or electric foot shock, wherein the physical factors rather than emotional ones were greatly involved, caused more marked increases in NA release in the more extended brain regions, as compared to psychological stress and conditioned fear, which caused increases in NA release preferentially in the hypothalamus, amygdala and locus coeruleus (LC) region. When the electric shock stress and psychological stress for 1 hr daily were repeated for 5 consecutive days, increases in brain NA release induced by electric shock were rapidly reduced, but those caused by psychological stress were enhanced rather than reduced. Rats with no stressor controllability (uncontrollable) had more severe gastric lesions and more marked increases in NA release in such brain regions as the hypothalamus and amygdala after 21 hrs of training than controllable rats. Rats with no opportunity to predict electric shock exhibited more severe gastric lesions and more marked increases in hypothalamic NA release than the predictable rats. The rats not allowed to express their aggression had more severe gastric mucosal lesions and a more noticeable and persistent increases in extracellular NA content in the amygdala determined by intracerebral microdialysis than the rats allowed to express aggression by biting a wooden stick in front of them during stress exposure. In aged rats (12 months old), recovery from increases in NA release in the hypothalamus and amygdala and increases in plasma corticosterone were much later than in young (2-month-old) rats. When rats were exposed to a series of six 15-min stress interrupted by 18-min non-stress periods for 180 min, they had much greater increases in brain NA release than rats stressed continuously for 180 min. Based upon these findings, we suggest that such stresses might be harmful to our health as psychological, uncontrollable and unpredictable stresses, stress unable to express aggression, stress in elderly people, and stress with lack of suitable rest.  (+info)

Aggression is one of the core symptoms of antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) with therapeutic and prognostic relevance. ASPD is highly prevalent among inmates, being responsible for adverse events and elevated direct and indirect economic costs for the criminal justice system. The Impulsive/Premeditated Aggression Scale (IPAS) is a self-report instrument that characterises aggression as either predominately impulsive or premeditated. This study aims to determine the validity and reliability of the IPAS in a sample of Portuguese inmates. A total of 240 inmates were included in the study. A principal component factor analysis was performed so as to obtain the construct validity of the IPAS impulsive aggression (IA) and premeditated aggression (PM) sub-scales; internal consistency was determined by Cronbachs alpha coefficient; convergent and divergent validity of the sub-scales were determined analysing correlations with the Barratt Impulsiveness scale, 11th version (BIS-11), and the Psychopathic
In the wild, female chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) are subject to male aggression that at times can be prolonged or particularly violent. There are no reports of cooperative retaliation to such aggression, a strategy observed in the congeneric Pan paniscus, from the wild despite ,4 decades of detailed behavioral study across a number of populations and its occurrence among captive female chimpanzees. If the reports from captivity represent an inherent capacity, then the absence of similar reports from wild populations suggests that females may be able to form coalitions only under appropriate ecological and demographic conditions. During a study of male and female aggressive interactions among chimpanzees of the Budongo Forest, Uganda, wild adult female chimpanzees sometimes formed coalitions with one another to retaliate against male aggression.

The overarching goals are: (a) to conduct perhaps the most systematic integration of biosocial risk factors for childhood aggression in order to predict later aggression, (b) to conduct one of the very few biosocial interventions on childhood aggression, (c) to predict and treat two fundamentally different manifestations of aggression proactive and reactive aggression which likely have different etiologies and responsiveness to treatment. The specific aims are: (1) to assess biological (genetic, neurocognitive, brain imaging, neuroendocrinological, neurotoxin, psychophysiological, nutritional), psychosocial (neighborhood, family, school, peer, psychological) and psychiatric (ADHD, CD, ODD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, schizophrenia-spectrum) risk factors for male and female aggression in order to better predict later aggression, (2) to improve prediction ...
LAKE SUCCESS (Nov. 8). Israel today opposed the idea of an attempt on the part of the United Nations to define aggression in absolute terms by means of a list of its various forms. Arthur Lourie, of the Israel delegation (##)sing that no such list could be exhaustive, announced Israels intentions to abstain on a Soviet proposal to this effect. He said that a decision should be made by competent organs of the U.N. in each individual case of alleged aggression.. Meanwhile, in an address prepared for delivery before the General Assemblys legal Committee, Jacob Robinson, of the Israel delegation, vigorously urged that the international Law Commissions formulation on the Nuremberg principles of punishment of war criminals should be adopted despite their imperfection. He declared that the original formulation had already been "dehydrated" and denounced proposals to refer the whole question back for further study and "further weakening.". ...
This longitudinal study examined relationships for male and female intimate partner aggression with depression and physical health, and indirect effects of aggression on health via depressive symptoms for 119 midlife couples. Physical and emotional aggression victimization and perpetration were examined; for 63% of couples both spouses reported at least one act of aggression over a three year period, for 9% only the husband was aggressive, for 12% only the wife was aggressive, and for 16% no partner aggression was reported. Path modeling revealed associations for husband total aggression with husband depression and with a composite variable of wife physical health, which combined measures assessing heath conditions, subclinical symptoms, preventive care behaviors, health behaviors, and physical health quality of life. There was a non-significant indirect effect from husband total aggression to the husband physical health composite via husband depression, which was significant in the model ...
Introduction. Biological Explanations of Aggression Genetic factors One biological explanation of aggression includes genetic factors. Studies into aggression often find aggressive children have aggressive parents. One explanation of this is that aggression is inherited genetically. Miles and Carey carried out a meta-analysis of 24 twin and adoption studies and found that genes could account for 50% of the variance in aggression. This suggests aggression can be passed on genetically. Other research has focused on indentifying important characteristics of genes that may cause aggressive tendencies, particularly focusing on chromosomes. Sandberg indentified the 47XYY karyotype. While a normal individual has 46 chromosomes (23 from each parent) it is possible that males have an extra Y chromosome. As males are generally thought of as more aggressive it was thought having an extra Y chromosome (male chromosome) would increase their aggression. Court-Brown even suggested XYY males would be best ...
Manns team investigated the effects of Prozac alone, alcohol alone, and Prozac plus alcohol on two types of aggression: offensive and defensive. "Offensive would be two males fighting over territory, for example," says Mann. "Defensive involves an aggressive response to a painful or frustrating stimuli.". Mice in the three drug groups were put in a cage together, to investigate offensive aggression, or given a mild electric shock, to investigate defensive aggression. In the second case, the mices tendency to bite an inanimate object protruding into their cage in response to the shock was measured. Prozac is thought to work by prolonging the presence of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Low levels of serotonin are associated both with alcohol consumption and with aggression. The team expected that alcohol alone would boost aggression - and that this effect would be counteracted by an accompanying dose of Prozac. Prozac alone was expected to decrease aggressive behaviour. On the day ...

Close description of the ecological setting, culture and dynamics of young womens fighting is illuminating, but it should not distract us from the fact that, everywhere and at every historical period, physical aggression between women is less frequent and less severe than between young men. As the dangerousness of the aggressive act increases so does the magnitude of the sex difference. Just as the sex difference is greater for aggravated than simple assault, so same-sex homicides show the greatest imbalance with 97% committed by men around the world [36]. Meta-analysis of self-report studies find effect sizes of d = 0.59 for physical aggression, d = 0.19 for verbal aggression and d = 0.05 for indirect aggression [37]. In other primate species also, aggression between males is more injurious than between females [38].. This pattern of sex differences has been explained in terms of sexual selection [37]. Daly & Wilson [18] focused on the greater variance in male reproductive success which offers ...
Introduction. Allen (2009:103) asserts that aggression is a social act and that various forms of socially acceptable aggression are reinforced on a daily basis through the media, public discourse and teaching. In line with this, Grossman (2010:309) states that society inadvertently desensitises vulnerable learners to aggression and socialises them to accept it as a means of coping with their social environment and lifes challenges. He believes that this is a cultural shift that accounts for much of the tragic learner aggression occurring in schools.. As a microcosm of society, secondary schools are not immune to the aggression portrayed by society. Marie Poggenpoel and Chris Myburgh (2008:3) of the University of Johannesburg said that such aggression in South African schools was a reflection of what was happening in society. Professor Poggenpoel made this comment following a sword attack on learners and staff at a secondary school in Krugersdorp. Various explanations were offered as to why ...
In recent years, researchers have begun making headway in their search for biologically based indicators of aggression.. A large body of research, including past work by Bortolato, has zeroed in on the enzyme monoamine oxidase A (MAO A) as a possible biomarker for aggression. Specifically, Bortolato and others have shown that the combination of MAO A deficiency and extreme stress or abuse at a young age can cause pathological aggression in mice and adult males.. In 2011, Bortolato and his colleagues built on these findings by developing the first animal model of this genetic-environment interaction. In particular, he developed a new transgenic line of mice with very low levels of MAO A and then subjected them to early life stress that simulated child neglect and abuse. As expected, the mice demonstrated increased aggression.. In 2012, Bortolato and his colleagues made a breakthrough discovery when they identified a critical neurological factor in aggression: a brain receptor that malfunctions in ...
The present study revealed that 85 percent of these respondents had been harassed or intimidated, 65 percent had been threatened, and nearly 50 percent had been subjected to acts of actual physical aggression at least once during the course of their professional careers. In contrast to expectations, there was no more overall aggression in respondents forensic practice than in their nonforensic practice. The ANOVA demonstrated that the appearance of difference was because of the higher amount of time that respondents in this study engaged in forensic work. When proportion of time spent in forensic work was taken into account, there was no difference between the forensic and nonforensic settings for threats, H/I, or acts of physical aggression.. Previous surveys of the lifetime incidence of aggressive events experienced by mental health professionals have ranged from 22 to 61 percent in the category of threats9,11,22 and 14 to 55 percent in the category of physical aggression,6,7,9-11,22 placing ...
Corticosterone is a stress hormone known to modulate social aggression. The consumption of a high sucrose solution also changed the activation levels of many genes, including inflammatory genes, in brain regions associated with aggression. This study shows a clear cause and effect in animals; however, the association between aggressive behavior and sugar consumption in humans remains controversial. Studies have found associations between refined sugar intake and aggression/hyperactivity while others have not. Future clinical studies may help shed some light.. ...
This study examined the importance of early childhood friendships and their contribution to subsequent aggression. The aim was to discover whether having aggressive friends in kindergarten leads to a child showing signs of aggression 1 year later. Aggressive friends could be viewed as an environmental factor contributing to childhood aggression. However, something in an individuals genetic makeup may cause them to choose aggressive friends. This would be a case of genetic factors interacting with environmental factors. It can be difficult in such cases to determine whether it is genetic or environmental factors that are contributing to aggression. Monozygotic (MZ) twins share 100% of their genes and are usually brought up together. Thus, in an MZ twin pair, if one twin shows signs of aggressive behaviour and the other does not, aggression could not be explained by genetic factors or by an interaction between genetic and environmental factors. Instead, the difference must be explained by some ...

Introduction. Outline and evaluate genetic factors in aggression. The idea that genetic factors play a role in aggression has been studied by many psychologists. They have looked at twin studies to try and find evidence of a genetic basis. Twin studies provide evidence of a link by comparing the tendency of both twins in pairs of monozygotic and dizygotic twins expressing aggression. One twin study was carried out by McGue et al, by using a multi-dimensional personality questionnaire to assess levels of aggression; they were able to find correlational values of both MZ and DZ twins. The study found that genetic factors play a part in aggression. In studies such as these the twins are asked to self report or else the parents asked to fill in questionnaires, in this way there is a problem of how each individual assesses aggression. ...read more.

This study investigated the aggressive behavior of female Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata (Blyth, 1875)) during lactation. Following parturition, the frequency of aggression showed an initial decline during weeks 1â€"2 of infant life, then increased to peak during weeks 7â€"8 post partum, and finally declined again to prepartum levels. Neither the initial decline nor the subsequent increase in aggression rate post partum was related to sociodemographic characteristics of the motherâ€"infant dyad or to measures of maternal style. These results suggest that variation in postpartum aggression may be influenced less by the quality of the motherâ€"infant relationship than by the mothers relationships the mother has with group mates ...
Adjusting by individual-level confounding factors, the MSEM model showed deviant peer associations as being the greatest influence for both types of adolescent aggressive behaviour, followed by harsh discipline. By contrast, parental supervision and pro-social peers exerted a very important protective role, particularly against delinquent behaviour. Consistent with three-level Rasch model results, neighbourhood social processes did not predict adolescents aggressive behaviour. The left-hand side of the Figure shows that structural neighbourhood factors indirectly exerted their effect on aggression and delinquency by increasing the risk of poor parenting and greater deviant peer affiliation.. DISCUSSION. This paper has investigated pathways linking neighbourhood characteristics to individual-level aggression and delinquency. The significance of the indirect effects indicated that structural neighbourhood conditions were important for adolescents aggressive behaviour, given that although they ...

A crisis in South African schools. Aggressive behaviour in South African schools has become an increasing concern as "people of all ages, cultures, and both genders" resort to aggressive behaviour in order to express their emotions and frustrations (Breet, Myburgh & Poggenpoel, 2010:511). According to a report providing an overview of school-based violence in South Africa, there are serious concerns about the high rate of violence and aggression in primary and secondary schools, and even in broader society. Violence and aggression are not limited to learners at schools but also manifest in teachers (South African Council of Educators (SACE), 2011:1).. Reports appear regularly on male teachers who resort to and display aggressive behaviour in South African schools. Some examples are: Toerien (2002) refers to an incident in which a male teacher raped a 13-year-old primary school learner. Rade-meyer (2003) describes an incident where a male teacher grabbed learners by the neck and then pushed one ...

In substance use and psychotic disorders, socially problematic behaviours, such as high aggression may, in part, be explained by deficits in social cognition skills, like the detection of emotions or intentions in others. The aim of this study was to assess the magnitude of social cognition impairment and its association with aggression in individuals with methamphetamine (MA) dependence, methamphetamine-associated psychosis (MAP), and healthy controls (CTRL). A total of 20 MAP participants, 21 MA-dependent participants without psychosis, and 21 CTRL participants performed a facial morphing emotion recognition task (ERT) across four basic emotions (anger, fear, happiness and sadness) and the reading the mind in the eyes task (RMET), and completed the aggression questionnaire ...

The role of genetic factors in aggression can be tested in twin studies. MZ twins share all of their genes, while DZ twins share a maximum of 50%. If MZ twins are more alike than DZ twins in terms of their aggressive behaviour than this suggests a strong genetic influence rather than environmental. Studies of adult twins suggests that at least 50% of the variance in aggression can be explained in terms of genetic factors.. Adoption studies can help determine the relative contributions of environment and heredity in aggression. A study by Mednick and Hutchings shows an interaction between genes and their environment. They studied criminal records of adopted Danish children, the results showed that having a criminal biological father increased the risk of criminality, but the highest risk was for those with a criminal biological father and a criminal adoptive father.. One gene that has been linked to aggression is the gene coding for the production of MAOA. MAOA regulates the metabolism of ...
Aggressive behavior is an important component of fitness in most animals. Aggressive behavior is genetically complex, with natural variation attributable to multiple segregating loci with allelic effects that are sensitive to the physical and social environment. However, we know little about the genes and genetic networks affecting natural variation in aggressive behavior. Populations of Drosophila melanogaster harbor quantitative genetic variation in aggressive behavior, providing an excellent model system for dissecting the genetic basis of naturally occurring variation in aggression. Correlating variation in transcript abundance with variation in complex trait phenotypes is a rapid method for identifying candidate genes. We quantified aggressive behavior in 40 wild-derived inbred lines of D. melanogaster and performed a genome-wide association screen for quantitative trait transcripts and single feature polymorphisms affecting aggression. We identified 266 novel candidate genes associated with

Fifteen to 20 percent of adults with developmental/intellectual disabilities have problem behaviors. For this study, the researchers focused specifically on aggression, self-injury or property destruction and set out to determine if there was a genetic underpinning for these behaviors. They focused on the gene that encodes monoamine oxidize A or MAOA. MAOA is involved in the regulation of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is linked to appetite and mood, and the neurotransmitter and hormone norepinephrine, which is linked to the fight-or-flight response. Previous studies found that variations in MAOA were linked to violent behavior ...

Abstract: "Aggressive behavior typically peaks in toddlerhood and decreases by school entry. However, an estimated ten percent of children do not show this normative decline. In addition, persistent aggression in toddlerhood, preschool, and early childhood may develop into disruptive, problem behavior in adolescence and adulthood. The current study examined 318 boys and girls from a sample selected in toddlerhood for externalizing behavior problems. At 2, 4, and 5 years of age mothers reported on childrens aggressive behavior. In addition, observed and physiological measures of child temperamental reactivity and emotion regulation and maternal behavior were assessed in toddlerhood. A sub model of SEMM (structural equation mixture modeling), latent profile analysis (LPA; Gibson, 1959), was performed, resulting in 4 longitudinal profiles of aggression: a high profile, a sub-threshold profile, a normative profile, and a low profile. Composites of observed emotion regulation, physiological emotion ...
For more information, see http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/04/science/to-study-aggression-a-fight-club-for-flies.html?ref=science&_r=1).. Does that mean that we humans have aggression neurons in our own brains? We dont know for sure, but in other work we have identified what appear to be aggression neurons in the mouse brain. These neurons are located in the hypothalamus, an evolutionarily ancient structure deep in the brain that is also present in humans. Therefore, it seems likely that humans have similar cells as well. But if we were able to find these cells in mice, then why even bother with flies? First, the work in mice progresses far more slowly than in flies, because of their long generation time (10 weeks for a mouse, compared to 12 days for a fly). Our findings in the fly encouraged us to pursue our more laborious studies in mice. Second, flies have only about 3-5 of these "aggression neurons" in their brain, while mice have ~2,000. That makes it much easier to study the neurons in the ...
On their own territory, most dogs and some cats are more likely to fight than retreat, and dogs with their owners may stay close rather than retreating. When approached rapidly, a dog or cat may go through the stages of aggressive behavior very quickly and bite without the intruder being able to react. Dogs that are highly reactive or aroused may react with a defensive response almost reflexively, in comparison to a dog that is calm enough to make a quick assessment of the approaching stimulus and "decide" on the appropriate response. Dogs and cats that are mildly fearful may calm down if the intruder shows no fear, waits until the pet settles, and then offers a food reward. Reaching for a dog or cat while continuing to advance is likely to provoke further aggression. Some dogs may freeze, and while they are neither advancing or retreating, they are still in an aroused aggressive state, ready to respond with aggression, often quite quickly, even to subtle changes in the social interaction. ...

Finally, 19 dogs were retained for this study, showing, according to different behavioural specialists, disinhibited dominance aggression. Functional imaging studies were performed on all these ...

What self-respecting mother would not do all within her power to look after the welfare of her offspring? Not too many. But sometimes these feelings of protectiveness can be expressed as "maternal aggression" that can make a once-friendly pet virtually unapproachable.. Some of this protectiveness arises out of affection and concern of a mother for her young. However, nature and alterations in brain chemistry catalyze the response. The sight, sound, and smell of the newborn, as well as tactile signals received during nursing, cause the release of a "bonding hormone," oxytocin, which seals the mother-infant bond (and has other mechanical effects on the uterus and other smooth muscle tissues). In addition to this change, blood levels of progesterone, the hormone of pregnancy, fall rapidly as estrogen levels climb. The calming effect of progesterone is lost and the more activating effect of estrogen replaces it. Also, and perhaps most significantly, the rise and fall of the milk-releasing hormone ...

Individuals who survive an infection normally become immune to that particular disease, although not to other diseases. This is because the immune system "remembers" foreign antigens, a process called immune memory . Next time the same antigen appears, it triggers a far swifter and more aggressive response than before. Consequently, the invading microorganisms will usually be overwhelmed before they cause noticeable illness. Immune memory is due to specialized B cells called memory cells . As discussed earlier, virgin B cells are triggered to divide if they encounter an antigen that matches their own individual antibody. Most of the new B cells are specialized for antibody synthesis, and they live only a few days. However, a few active B cells become memory cells, and instead of making antibodies, they simply wait. If one day the antigen they recognize appears again, most of the memory cells switch over very rapidly to antibody production. Vaccination takes advantage of immune memory. Vaccines ...

This report describes some aspects of the drinking behavior of a nationally representative cohort of men and women in the United States in 1988. The data are drawn from the 1988 round of the NLSY, which include interviews with 10,466 men and women who were 23 to 30 years of age. The descriptive analyses showed that males drank both more frequently and in heavier quantities than females. Blacks drank less heavily and less often than whites and Hispanics. Socioeconomic status is associated with less abstaining, but more modest drinking patterns. Men and women who were married and those who were parents were less likely to drink, in terms of both frequency and quantity. Twenty percent of the sample reported experiencing at least one alcohol-related problem in the past year. About 15 percent of the sample experienced alcohol-related aggression problems, and the same proportion experienced problems involving loss of control over alcohol intake. Alcohol-related problems in the workplace were rare, ...
Social living incurs both costs and benefits [1]. On the one hand, social animals cooperate with group members to better detect predators or exploit food [2]. On the other hand, they compete with the same individuals over food, mating partners and shelter [3,4]. This dilemma has supposedly shaped behavioural strategies and cognitive abilities of group-living animals in order to better outcompete group members when facing a conflict of interest, without losing the benefit of group living [5-7].. When facing a conflict of interest, animals are viewed as going through a decision-making process of whether or not to escalate the conflict to overt aggression [8,9]. Besides several factors related to costs and benefits, animals are more likely to engage in aggression when they have a greater likelihood of accessing the resource after the conflict [9]. Therefore, in order to outcompete the opponent successfully, it is important to correctly predict the outcome of a conflict situation. For example, ...

Sexual selection is the process of competing for access to a mate, and this includes intersexual selection and intrasexual selection. The two types of sexual selection include intrasexual and intrasexual selection, which is either the competition between members of the same sex or choosing a mate of the opposite sex, respectively. In intrasexual selection, weaponry is thought to be important as it increases competitive access. Recent research suggests that overall size and shape can be a predictor of fight outcome. Male Cyphoderris monstrosa are known to be aggressive when it comes to territory and mates, exhibiting this in contests. Using a vertical log arena, pairs of male Cyphoderris monstrosa were subjected to behavioural aggression trials. Contestants from the trials were dissected and photographs of their head, femora, and forewings were taken. Using these photographs, landmarks were used to determine morphological size and shape of each individual contestant. This study found that overall ...

Abstract: Misophonia is an understudied but relatively common respondent behavior condition, the effects of which range from annoying to debilitating. Misophonia cannot be classified with DSM or ICD-criteria. Misophonia is known as a condition where commonly occurring innocuous stimuli (e.g. chewing sound) elicit anger and accompanying physiological responses which function as motivating operations for overt aggression and escape. Recent basic research on misophonia as a behavioral phenomenon has identified an immediate physical response (typically a muscle flinch) elicited by misophonic stimuli, which is unique for each person. Although there are some common misophonic stimuli, each person has a unique set of stimuli, which often includes auditory and visual stimuli, but can be any sensory modality. Misophonia is similar to general sensory sensitivity which is common with autism, but the management and intervention for each are quite different. Misophonia was first identified and named by ...

Slayer Repentless. Nuclear Blast. www.slayer.net. Release Date: September 11, 2015. "Violence" and "aggression" are two words that have always been associated with thrash metal gods Slayer. For over thirty years Slayer has been leading the charge as one of the pioneers of the most aggressive thrash metal music in history. Beginning with their 1983 debut album HAUNTING THE CHAPEL the LA based quartet have produced some iconic albums that have withstood the test of time and has defined a whole genre of music. With the untimely passing of original member Jeff Hanneman and thirty plus years of head banging it could be easily deduced that Slayer is irrelevant or non-existent, but nothing could be further from this assumption. Slayer is alive and well and they are here to stay. On Sept 11, 2015 the band released their long anticipated twelfth CD REPENTLESS and maybe it should have been more aptly titled "relentless" because this album does not let up for one second. After the introduction track ...

This result, which everybody desires, would be achieved if either one of two things happened: (1) that Germany was made incapable of starting another, war, (2) that the minds of Germans were so changed that they would not wish to start another and would not permit their government to lead them into one. Neither of these things, as we have seen, happened after the last war. If our aim is to prevent what did happen the last time from happening again, upon which of these preventives shall we rely?. Some people think that we must rely chiefly upon what has been called "moral disarmament"-a change in the state of mind of a sufficient number of Germans so that no future ruler or government will be able to lead the country into another war of aggression. It is pointed out that, in the last free election in Germany, the Nazis and the parties with a similar program had a bare majority; and it is argued that, after the Nazis have brought Germany to a ruinous defeat, most of those who had been infected ...

Nowadays, we want to have everything tailored to our personality. Personal computer, tablet and smartphone with unique applications, original shoes, unique style and everything that looks unusual. Are we so careful while choosing our diet?. Our metabolism, just like our character or personality, has also its individual characteristics. We can feed anyone, but not everyone can be nourished and that makes a huge difference.. An Intruder in the territory. We usually know our blood type; all we need to do is to give a sample of blood and we can learn a lot. What about our metabolism? We often do dozens of food allergy or intolerance tests, but when our body is nourished with wrong fuel, it responds with aggression on each factor, literally. That is why one bite can cause even ten adverse effects. We are wrong when we are focusing on counting calories only, though it is a trend created mainly by media, nutritionists and doctors. While the body senses even a trace amount of an intruder on its ...

Congratulations on highlighting again the effects of adult bullies on staff in schools. The accumulation of reports in your pages reinforces my long-held belief of the inadequacy of the procedures used for selecting senior staff in schools. A comprehensive selection procedure which uses a personality questionnaire as one element and a leadership task as another, will give insights into the levels of confidence and aggression exhibited by candidates. The more traditional procedure of interview possibly augmented by a presentation will miss these and other vital clues in the search for the "ideal candidate". So, by improving selection methods, not only will governors and heads be more likely to choose the best person for the job, but they will also be minimising the possibility of selecting a bully who will undoubtedly have a devastating effect on relationships within the school. A worthwhile investment. Jane Phillips Phillips Education Associates Lime Villa, Summer Grove Elstree, Herts ...
This disclosure describes techniques for controlling spectral aggressors in a sensing device that uses a chopper amplifier to amplify an input signal prior to sampling the signal. In some examples, the techniques for controlling spectral aggressors may include generating a chopper-stabilized amplified version of an input signal based on a chopper frequency, sampling the chopper-stabilized amplified version of the input signal at a sampling rate to generate a sampled signal, and analyzing a target frequency band of the sampled signal. The chopper frequency and the sampling rate may cause spectral interference that is generated due to the chopper frequency to occur in the sampled signal at one or more frequencies that are outside of the target frequency band of the sampled signal. The techniques for controlling spectral aggressors may reduce the noise caused by the chopper frequency in the resulting sampled signal, thereby improving the quality of the signal.

Thanks Massimo, I think thats an interesting point and it helps me to understand where youre coming from. However, lets take the example of human aggression. First, there is plenty of archaeological and anthropological evidence of inter-specific aggression in humans. Second, there is sound evolutionary theory reasoning from first principles regarding the existence of adaptations for the regulation of aggression and how they should operate (e.g. Parker 1974). Third, there is a host of empirical studies that reveal the operation of such adaptations at the hormonal, psychological, and behavioral level (e.g. Jon Archers excellent work on the challenge hypothesis, and also experimental work by Aaron Sell). Maybe you meant to use the rape example as an illustration of hypotheses you believe are weak, which is fine. Independently of whether the rape hypothesis is correct, this does not show that ev psych hypotheses in general are less testable than gene-culture coevolutionary models, or that they ...
In the medical literature and the media at large, women are predominantly represented as victims rather than perpetrators of violence. Women who commit violence toward others are violating social, cultural, and psychological norms to a much higher extent compared with men; when women act violently, it is generally unexpected.1 Studies have suggested that when dealing with stress and negative emotions such as anger, women are more likely than men to use internalized coping strategies.2 Women are less likely to be physically violent toward others and are more likely to express aggression as introverted problems such as depression, anxiety, and substance misuse. Laboratory studies have provided evidence of gender differences in aggression in response to experimentally produced stress. Numerous studies have shown that the behavioral profiles associated with coping with stress differ in men and women, with higher levels of aggressive behaviors in men.3,4 Beck et al.,5 in their information study, ...

Konrad Lorenz was the author of some of the most popular books ever published about animals, including the best-selling Man Meets Dog and King Solomons Ring. On Aggression is one of his finest works, as well as the most controversial. Through an insightful and characteristically entertaining survey of animal behaviour, the Nobel Prize winner tracks the evolution of aggression throughout the animal world. He also raises some startling questions when he applies his observations of animal psychology to humankind. His conclusions caused an unprecedented controversy, culminating in a statement adopted by UNESCO in 1989 which appeared to condemn his work. Whether or not Lorenz actually claimed aggression is hard-wired into the human psyche, and that war is an inevitable result, is something readers can decide upon for themselves. However you react, there can be no doubting that in todays violent world this powerful work remains of paramount importance.
This study investigated the impact of violent experiences during childhood, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and appetitive aggression on everyday violent behavior in Burundian females with varying participation in war. Moreover, group differences in trauma-related and aggression variables were expected. Appetitive aggression describes the perception of violence perpetration as fascinating and appealing and is a common phenomenon in former combatants. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 157 females, either former combatants, supporters of armed forces or civilians during the civil war in Burundi. The PTSD Symptom Scale Interview was used to assess PTSD symptom severity, the Appetitive Aggression Scale to measure appetitive aggression and the Domestic and Community Violence Checklist to assess both childhood maltreatment and recent aggressive behavior. Former combatants had experienced more traumatic events, perpetrated more violence and reported higher levels of appetitive aggression than
Intermittent explosive disorder (sometimes abbreviated as IED) is a behavioral disorder characterized by explosive outbursts of anger and violence, often to the point of rage, that are disproportionate to the situation at hand (e.g., impulsive screaming triggered by relatively inconsequential events). Impulsive aggression is not premeditated, and is defined by a disproportionate reaction to any provocation, real or perceived. Some individuals have reported affective changes prior to an outburst (e.g., tension, mood changes, energy changes, etc.). The disorder is currently categorized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) under the "Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Conduct Disorders" category. The disorder itself is not easily characterized and often exhibits comorbidity with other mood disorders, particularly bipolar disorder. Individuals diagnosed with IED report their outbursts as being brief (lasting less than an hour), with a variety of bodily symptoms ...

Police Scotland have said the arrest of a man responsible for a series of offensive Facebook posts about Syrian refugees resettled on the Isle of Bute should send a clear message that such social media abuse will not be tolerated..

Twelve Syrian families arrived in the seaside town in early December, as Scotland welcomed one third of the thousand refugees David Cameron agreed to take from camps bordering Syria before the end of last year.. Following the arrest, Insp Ewan Wilson from Dunoon police office said: "I hope that the arrest of this individual sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of activity which could incite hatred and provoke offensive comments on social media." ...
Head-butting during aggressive behavior is common and widespread among cetaceans, suggesting that it may be a basal behavior for the group. Although data are not available for most species, head-butting has been observed in species in each of the four major cetacean lineages. Among the Mysticeti, male humpback whales (Baker and Herman, 1984) have been observed to ram each other with their heads during competition for females. Of the three species that constitute the Physeteroidea, sperm whales have been observed to use head-butting during male-male aggression (Berzin, 1972) and when attacking whaling boats and whaling ships (Chase, 1821; Starbuck, 1878; Sawtell, 1962). Among the Ziphioidea, male bottle-nosed whales have been observed to use their enlarged melon to ram competing males (Gowans and Rendell, 1999). Among the Delphinida, aggressive head-butting has been observed in Amazon river dolphins (Caldwell et al., 1989), narwhals (Silverman and Dunbar, 1980), long-finned pilot whales (Reilly ...
