This is often referred to as aggression that is related to a conflict in the dominant/submissive relationship between two dogs or human and a dog. It is also used interchangeably with the term dominance aggression.. When the context of the term is being used as a trait, such as: This line of dogs is known to have high social aggression., or This breed of dogs is usually selected for low levels of social aggression, it is referring to the dogs tendency to show aggression for social reasons.. For example, some lines of Rottweilers and German Shepherds may growl at a stranger if that stranger or even certain family members try to give them a command. Some dogs will show aggression if someone tries to touch them. If the body language and history of the dog show that this aggression is not due to fear and is consistent with dominant posturing and rules of hierarchy than these dogs can be referred to as having high social aggression.. Certain dogs can have almost anything done to them and they ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of natal male alliances on aggression and power dynamics in rhesus macaques. AU - Beisner, B. A.. AU - Jackson, M. E.. AU - Cameron, A.. AU - Mccowan, B.. PY - 2011/8. Y1 - 2011/8. N2 - In the wild, male rhesus macaques disperse at sexual maturity. In captivity, however, males cannot disperse from their natal groups. Thus, the presence of natal males in captive rhesus social groups is unnatural and has the potential to negatively influence group dynamics and stability. A primary difference between natal males and non-natal (immigrant) males is that natal males have the opportunity to form long-term alliances with their maternal kin as well as nonkin. We investigated the factors associated with natal males kin alliances and the impact of these alliances on measures of natal male behavior, group dynamics, and group stability. We found that natal males more frequently formed alliances with maternal kin when they were from high-ranking matrilines, had more siblings, and were ...
Abstract: Using a longitudinal design, prior experience with violence as a victim and opportunity to aggress were examined as predictors of college womens verbal and physical aggression toward romantic partners. Five additional categories of predictors identified in previous research (experienced and witnessed parental aggression during childhood, attitudes accepting of aggression, aggressive/impulsive personality attributes, psychopathology, and prior use of aggression) were also examined. Blockwise hierarchical regression analyses were performed to reveal the best predictors of verbal aggression were prior use of verbal aggression in heterosexual conflicts during adolescence, witnessed parental aggression, level of adolescent sexual victimization, being a target of rational conflict strategies during adolescence and use of physical aggression in romantic adolescent relationships, as well as self-reported verbal aggression as an index of personality, weak emotional ties, number of sexual ...
Children with disruptive behavior (DB) are a heterogeneous group who exhibit several characteristics that may contribute to poor social functioning. The present study identified profiles of reactive aggression, proactive aggression, callous-unemotional (CU) traits, and prosocial behavior in a sample of children with DB. Associations with social functioning (social interaction, social status) were then examined, along with sex differences in profile membership. Parent ratings of 304 clinic-referred children ages 6-12 years with DB were analyzed using latent profile analysis. Five profiles were identified: 1) Moderate prosocial behavior, reactive aggression, and CU, and low proactive aggression (labelled Moderate); 2) Relatively high prosocial behavior and low reactive and proactive aggression and CU traits (Prosocial); 3) High prosocial behavior and reactive aggression, moderate proactive aggression, and low-moderate CU (Reactive-Prosocial); 4) Low prosocial behavior, high CU, high-moderate reactive

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

Understanding the joint neurobiological and social bases to aggression is critical to future attempts to tackle this major public health problem. 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 ...
Although there have been a wide range of epidemiological studies examining the impact of patterns of alcohol consumption among adolescents, there remains considerable variability in both defining these patterns and the ability to comprehensively evaluate their relationship to behavioural patterns. This study explores a new procedure for defining and evaluating drinking patterns and integrating well-established indicators. The composite measure is then used to estimate the impact of these patterns on alcohol-related aggressive behaviour among Italian adolescents. Data were collected as part of the 2011 European School Survey Project on Alcohol and other Drugs (ESPAD). A national sample of 14,199 students aged 15-19 years was collected using an anonymous, self-administered questionnaire completed in a classroom setting. Drinking patterns were established using principal component analysis. Alcohol-related aggression was analysed as to its relationship to patterns of drinking, behaviour of friends towards
Overt aggression, increased anxiety, and dysfunctional fear processing are often observed in individuals with conduct disorder (CD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Methylphenidate (MPH), a psychostimulant increasing dopamine and noradrenaline tone, is effective in reducing aggression in both CD and ADHD individuals. However, it is unclear to which extent these effects of MPH are dose dependent. Here, the effects of acute intraperitoneal MPH (3 and 10 mg/kg) on aggression, anxiety, social behavior, and fear extinction were investigated in BALB/cJ mice. Previous studies in BALB/cJ mice have revealed high levels of aggression and anxiety that are associated with reduced top-down cortical control. Administration of 3 mg/kg MPH prolonged the attack latency and prevented escalation of aggression over time compared to vehicle-treated mice, while 10 mg/kg MPH increased number of bites and attacks. In addition, 3 mg/kg MPH decreased social interaction slightly. A strong anxiolytic effect was
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 ...
Aggression can be a serious behavioral concern. Aggressive behavior can occur in cats of any breed, size, age, or gender. Cats dont speak our language, so often aggression is the only way they can communicate to us that they are uncomfortable. Fear is the most common reason for aggression. Other triggers for aggression may include play, territorial behavior, or anticipated pain. It can occur as a conditioned response if the cat has been physically punished in the past.. Pay close attention to your cats body language as you approach. A nervous or fearful cat may display the following signs: sideways or backwards flattened ears, whiskers pulled back, pupils dilated, and tail low or tucked between legs. Your cats body posture maybe crouched or low to the ground, as if they want to hide or turn away. Direct signs of fear aggression include arched back, fur standing on end, and erect puffed up tail. Audible fear aggression signals include hissing, yowling, or spitting.. Play aggression in cats can ...
GAZA, (PIC)- The deputy director of the Gaza Power Plant, Dirar Abu Sissi, the only isolated prisoner in Israeli jails, confirmed that the prison administration has tightened its measures in isolating him since the recent aggression on Gaza.. The Israeli intelligence service Mossad had kidnapped Abu Sissi, 44, in 2011 from Ukraine where he had been applying for citizenship to enable his family to leave Gaza, as his wife is Ukrainian. He was transferred to the occupied Palestinian territories and held in solitary confinement.. The occupation authorities refused to end Abu Sissis isolation despite the fact that they agreed to end all the prisoners isolation after April strike, for fear of revealing the mysteries of his abduction process.. Abu Sissi said in a letter from his solitary confinement in Ashkelon prison that his condition is very difficult, especially after the recent aggression on Gaza.. Abu Sissi is accused of developing resistance missiles that reached during the recent aggression ...
Our findings show that the traditional predictors of antisocial behavior during preadolescence, adolescence, and adulthood also predict high levels of physical aggression from 17 to 42 months of age. These results support growing evidence that chronic physical aggression during childhood, which, in some cases, becomes serious violence during adolescence and adulthood, starts with high levels of physical aggression during infancy and toddlerhood.27,29,53. Our analyses attempted to address the issue of intergenerational transmission of antisocial behavior. Results clearly show that girls high level of antisocial behavior before the end of high school tends to be followed by their childrens high levels of physical aggression in early childhood. These results confirm earlier studies that had shown that mothers criminal history was associated with their childrens criminal behavior.23,54 However, for the first time, we show that the intergenerational transmission of antisocial behavior probably ...

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 ...
Psychiatric symptoms and aggressive communication between partners tend to coexist. However, the majority of studies on the relation between couples aggressive communication and psychiatric disorders are cross-sectional and often report on how one partners aggression may affect symptoms of psychiatric disorders in the other partner, so-called partner effects of aggression. The impact of third variables notwithstanding, prospective studies is needed to disentangle potential causes from alleged effects. Moreover, various types of conflict communication, e.g. overt aggression versus passive aggressive communication styles, may have different impact on different mental health problems. I therefore examined whether symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorder and personality disorders as well as symptoms of alcohol abuse affected change in the use of different conflict styles with partner in a large sample of women. Data was collected over a two-year period. The aggression types were measured ...
Abstract: An approximately representative national sample of 2,602 women and 2,105 men was surveyed regarding their frequency of inflicting and sustaining verbal and physical aggression in a heterosexual relationship. Results revealed that approximately 81% of the men inflicted, as well as received, some form of verbal aggression at least once, while the comparable figure for women was 87-88%. The percentage experiencing some form of physical aggression was lower; about 37% of the men and 35% of the women inflicted some form of physical aggression and about 39% of the men and 32% of the women sustained some physical aggression. No differences were found as a function of ethnicity, family income, and institutional characteristics. Regional differences in the use of verbal and physical aggression, and in the receipt of physical aggression, were found for men..

Authors. Jeffrey M. Halperin, PhD and Kathleen E. McKay, PhD. Description. The prevalence of aggression among youth continues to increase at an alarming rate. With youth violence accounting for 1 in every 12 murders that occurred in the U.S. in 2002 (Snyder & Sickmund, 2006), and 33% of U.S. high school students in 2003 reporting involvement in one or more physical fights within the past year and 12.8% reporting being in a physical fight on school property (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2004), the need to assess and treat aggressive behaviours has never been greater.. The CAS is an informant rating scale that is designed to evaluate setting-specific frequency and severity of aggressive acts of children and adolescents ages 5-18 years. Distinct from other more common measures that address oppositional defiant and antisocial behaviours, the CAS examines the aggressive acts of these youth.. Items describe actual acts of aggression versus a wide variety of behaviours that are ...
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 ...

This chapter reviews the effects of nitric oxide (NO) on aggressive behavior. Topics discussed include NO and aggression in Down syndrome and affective disorders, interaction with serotonin, interaction with the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, and environmental contributions to NO-mediated aggression.
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.

Some studies have reported associations between COMT and MAO genotypes and aggression, though results have been inconsistent. We examined the relationship between Overt aggression scale (OAS) scores, and both MAOA and MAOB polymorphisms in a well-powered sample of 346 subjects with schizophrenia. We also examined COMT in a Stage II replication sample of 150 individuals, and combined these results with our previously reported (Stage I) findings for COMT. We found no evidence of any associations between OAS ratings and any of the polymorphisms investigated under different genetic models. There was no evidence of epistatic interaction between MAOA and COMT on OAS scores. These results fail to support the theory that functional polymorphisms within the MAOA, MAOB, or COMT genes, as determinants of catecholamine enzymatic activity, are risk factors for aggressive behavior ...

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 ...
NEW YORK, Sunday, May 16, 2021 (WAFA) - UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was dismayed yesterday by civilian casualties in Gaza caused by Israeli airstrikes, and also deeply disturbed by Israels levelling to the ground of a tower containing international media outlets in Gaza, a spokesman said in a statement released Saturday.. Guterres spoke as Israel escalated its aggression on the Gaza Strip on Saturday dawn killing 10 members of an extended family in Shati refugee camp, and as the occupying state demolished a 13-floor Gaza building housing Qatar-based Al Jazeera Network and the Associated Press news agency.. The Secretary-General is dismayed by the increasing number of civilian casualties, including the death of ten members of the same family, including children, as a result of an Israeli airstrike last night in the al-Shati camp in Gaza, purportedly aimed at a Hamas leader, his spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said in the statement.. Guterres was also deeply disturbed by the ...

As is being widely reported, not only by ourselves, but in other areas too - the numbers of cases relating to violence and aggression are rising. As a result, we saw interest levels peak in our Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression (PMVA) courses - and now, as restrictions begin to ease in the UK, now it is more important than ever to think about revisiting some of that training.. Many organisations are already thinking about some refresher training. This isnt just our experience at Basis, but for our counterparts too. You may have heard just before Christmas, Basis joined the NFPS - a membership organisation specialising in keeping themselves and others safe, particularly in job roles where physical restraint is used.. The NFPS is an accrediting body and has considerably grown its membership - even since Basis has joined. They now have 200 agencies on board, just like Basis, that are passionate about protecting staff whilst in their roles, not just from violence and aggression ...
Leash aggression is one of the most common behaviors that pet owners like you will have an encounter with. How exactly are you supposed to solve it? This guide helps you address that question by giving you seven tips that you can implement with your pet.. Leash aggression can be defined as a specific type of behavior wherein your pet dog acts aggressive towards you, towards other people or towards other animal when he is on the leash. Pet owners like you often panic when encountering this behavior for the first time - I mean, if your dog is normally sweet and friendly, then how do you explain the fact that he turns into a snarling and growling canine terror when he meets someone else while he is on the leash?. Luckily, though, the cause of leash aggression is easily defined. Therefore, you can actually handle leash aggression quite well as long as you know what factor is causing it. Are you ready for the answer?. Frustration and pent-up anxiety can cause your dog to act aggressively when he ...
Biting and scratching during play are typical of play aggression, a behavior most commonly observed in young cats and kittens. Kittens raised with littermates learn how to bite and scratch with reduced intensity, because play that is too rough causes pain to a playmate, resulting in either retaliation or the cessation of play. Consequently, play aggression is usually seen in kittens that were not raised with littermates or playmates, are under-stimulated, or lack appropriate play outlets.. Play aggression can usually be recognized in a kittens body posture. The tail lashes back and forth, the ears flatten against the head, and the pupils (the black part of the eyes) dilate. This sort of posture usually develops from normal play and is followed by biting and scratching. Kittens that stalk moving objects, like your hands and feet, are also displaying play aggression. Play aggressive cats often stalk or hide, then jump out and attack as you pass.. Try keeping a record of when this occurs to see if ...
Previous studies have shown that children exposed prenatally to cocaine are more aggressive later on than other children (Sood et al, 2005). It is possible that a mothers cocaine use during her pregnancy is associated with her aggressive behavior toward her child later on, and that this maternal aggression in turn plays a role in later childhood aggression. This weeks STASH reviews a study that investigates the association between prenatal cocaine use and maternal aggression during the early years of a childs life and the early relationship between maternal and childhood aggression (Eiden, Schuetze, Colder & Veira, 2011).

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 ...
One in five people with brain cancer show physical aggression and one in four exhibit verbal aggression, according to research presented at a major cancer conference in Australia.
The necessity and purpose of this research was to investigate the potential influence of the age group on: (1) cohesion, (2) aggression, and (3) athletic satisfaction. The subjects were 615 athletes (291 men and 324 women), aged 18-36 years (M= 21.2, SD= 4.8), who participated in soccer, basketball, volleyball, handball and water polo eithin the provinces of Thrace, Attica, and Central Greece. To assess group cohesion, (a) the Group Environment Questionnaire was used, athletes satisfaction was assessed with (b) the Athletes Satisfaction Scale, and finally, to assess anger and aggression, (c) the Anger and Aggression Scale was used. The statistical analysis included descriptive analyzes, and one-way analysis of variance. The results showed that the factors of all three questionnaires showed good internal consistency, and therefore are reliable evaluation instruments. One-way analysis of variance (One Way Anovas) found statistically significant effects of age on: personal attraction, ...
Stress has been considered one of the most relevant factors promoting aggressive behavior. Animal and human pharmacological studies revealed the stress hormones corticosterone in rodents and cortisol in humans to constitute a particularly important neuroendocrine determinate in facilitating aggression and beyond that, assumedly in its continuation and escalation. Moreover, cortisol-induced alterations of social information processing, as well as of cognitive control processes, have been hypothesized as possible influencing factors in the stress-aggression link. So far, the immediate impact of a preceding stressor and thereby stress-induced rise of cortisol on aggressive behavior as well as higher-order cognitive control processes and social information processing in this context have gone mostly unheeded. The present thesis aimed to extend the hitherto findings of stress and aggression in this regard. For this purpose two psychophysiological studies with healthy adults were carried out, both ...

Several treatments applied in this study appeared to alter the general excitability of the experimental animals. To assist in differentiating such effects from more specific influences on aggressive behavior (see below), we evaluated the startle responses of the various test animals toward a wind puff (20 ms; 2-3 m/s) directed to the abdominal cerci (Fig. 2).. We observed no statistically significant differences between the startle responses of the three control groups of crickets: untreated, Ringer-injected, and wind (i.e., previously suspended in a wind stream with tarsal support to prohibit flight) (Fig. 2E,F, white, gray, and lightly hatched bars, respectively). Representative recordings of the startle responses are shown in Figure 2B for three different Ringer-injected (100 μl) crickets. These responses are characterized by a brief (250-350 ms) bout of intended running having a mean maximal translation velocity of 9.6 m/s (SD, 4.1; n = 11 animals; three trials averaged for each) (Fig. 2E, ...

This study examined the role of the level and variability of happiness, anger, anxiety, and sadness in the development of adolescent-reported anxiety disorder symptoms, depressive symptoms, and aggressive behavior in 452 adolescents (250 male) followed from age 13 to 14. Level and between-day variability of emotions were assessed through adolescent report at 3-month intervals across a 1 year period. Level and variability of the four emotions contributed to changes in anxiety disorder and depressive symptoms more consistently than to changes in aggressive behavior. All four emotions were predictive of changes in internalizing problems, while anger played the most prominent role in the development of aggressive behavior. Variability of emotions contributed to changes in anxiety disorder symptoms, while heightened levels of negative emotions and diminished happiness contributed to changes in depression. Results suggested somewhat stronger effects of negative affect on aggressive behavior for ...
Patient aggression and agitation on psychiatric inpatient wards poses a significant problem for both staff and patients, and impairs the therapeutic environment of the ward. Relaxation massage therapy has previously been shown to reduce the level of arousal, stress, anxiety and aggression in adolescents/young adults with various psychiatric disorders including anxiety, depression, conduct disorder and bulimia. This project investigates whether relaxation massage therapy is an effective intervention treatment for the management of arousal and aggression on a young adult inpatient ward.. Two treatment conditions will be assessed at different times on the ward; a) standard (control) treatment as per usual and b) relaxation massage therapy intervention treatment in addition to the standard treatment.

Author(s): Echevarria, David J.; Hammack, Catherine M.; Jouandot, David J.; Toms, Christina N. | Abstract: Previous research reports that acute alcohol exposure disrupts shoaling behavior in the zebrafish. The purpose of these studies is to better understand how acute alcohol exposure (0%, 0.125%, 0.25%, 0.5%, and 1.0%) alters zebrafish behavior. The effects of alcohol on aggressive behaviors in humans have been widely researched. Previous research from this lab has shown a bimodal effect of alcohol on shoaling behavior in zebrafish, with 0.5% and 2.0% (v/v) disrupting shoaling while 1.0% and 1.5% showing no direct effect. Because shoaling is a social behavior and is altered during acute alcohol exposure, aggressive behavior between fish should be addressed. In this series of experiments we explored alcohols effects on aggressive behaviors. In order to address a possible role for alcohol induced aggression as it relates to shoaling we chose to examine the effects of acute alcohol exposure on zebrafish
OBJECTIVE: This study investigates the interaction between brain lesion location and monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) in the genesis of aggression in patients with penetrating traumatic brain injury (PTBI). METHODS: We enrolled 155 patients with PTBI and 42 controls drawn from the Vietnam Head Injury Study registry. Patients with PTBI were divided according to lesion localization (prefrontal cortex [PFC] vs non-PFC) and were genotyped for the MAO-A polymorphism linked to low and high transcriptional activity. Aggression was assessed with the aggression/agitation subscale of the Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI-a). RESULTS: Patients with the highest levels of aggression preferentially presented lesions in PFC territories. A significant interaction between MAO-A transcriptional activity and lesion localization on aggression was revealed. In the control group, carriers of the low-activity allele demonstrated higher aggression than high-activity allele carriers. In the PFC lesion group, no significant differences
Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. Ever since the horrific incident at Columbine High School, violent video games and mass shootings have been intertwined. Now, a new study from an international team of researchers has found playing violent video games not only increases aggression but can also cause players to exhibit less self-control and more unethical behaviors.. The study researchers found these effects were strongest in teenage participants who scored high on a scale for moral disengagement - the capacity for an individual to convince themselves that ethics dont apply in a certain situation.. According to study author Brad Bushman, the results of the study show far-reaching impacts of playing violent video games.. When people play violent video games, they show less self-restraint. They eat more, they cheat more, said Bushman, a professor of psychology and communication at The Ohio State University. It isnt just about aggression, although that also increases when ...

Displacement Aggression And Stress - posted in Biology: In humans, as well as in animals, aggression occurs more often in men. Frustration produces a readiness for aggression. When the source of the frustration cannot be challenged, the aggression gets displaced onto an innocent target with violent behaviour. Displacement behaviour is associated with reduced stress levels among men but not women. Displacement aggression also lowers the level of glucocorticoids in animals like baboons....
Chronic antisocial behaviour in youth has been associated with cortisol, a measure of stress reactivity. However, some studies have found low cortisol levels, while others have found elevated cortisol levels. The present study compared variously defined aggressive subgroups for differences in salivary cortisol. A population-based sample of boys was followed longitudinally from childhood to adolescence. Assessments of different forms of antisocial behaviour were obtained from various informants at several points in time, and cortisol was collected at age 13. Higher cortisol levels were found in boys with conduct disorder (CD) than in boys without CD. In addition, boys with an aggressive form of CD had higher cortisol levels than boys who showed a covert form of CD. Furthermore, reactive aggression was strongly correlated with elevated cortisol. Adolescent boys with chronic reactive aggression and those who scored high on aggressive CD symptoms seem to have a more active ...

Territorial or protective aggression may be exhibited toward people or other animals that approach the pets property. Generally, people and other animals that are unusual, less familiar to the dog, or most unlike the members of the household are the most likely targets of territorial aggression.
Nationalism is widely viewed as a force for interstate violence, but does it really have an important effect on state aggression that cannot be explained by strategic concerns? I provide strong evidence that it does using regression discontinuity analysis. I take advantage of the fact that many countries experience a surge of nationalism when they go to the World Cup, and the World Cup qualification process from 1958-1998 produced a large number of countries that barely qualified or barely missed. I show that these countries are well-balanced across a wide range of factors, including past levels of aggression. However, the qualifiers experienced a significant spike in aggression during the World Cup year. I also replicate the analysis using the FIFA regional soccer championships and find similar results. In both cases, the estimated treatment effect is larger for authoritarian states than democracies, suggesting that democratic norms may help constrain nationalistic aggression. ...
Whether video games with aggressive content contribute to aggressive behaviour in youth has been a matter of contention for decades. Recent re-evaluation of experimental evidence suggests that the literature suffers from publication bias, and that experimental studies are unable to demonstrate compelling short-term effects of aggressive game content on aggression. Long-term effects may still be plausible, if less-systematic short-term effects accumulate into systematic effects over time. However, longitudinal studies vary considerably in regard to whether they indicate long-term effects or not, and few analyses have considered what methodological factors may explain this heterogeneity in outcomes. The current meta-analysis included 28 independent samples including approximately 21 000 youth. Results revealed an overall effect size for this population of studies (r = 0.059) with no evidence of publication bias. Effect sizes were smaller for longer longitudinal periods, calling into question ...
Puppy and dog play, just like all social predatory animals consists of practice predatory behavior and practice fight behavior.. More relaxed body and face postures, as well as the relative restraint during bites, mark the difference between the play and the mature forms of aggression.. Play aggression is used to teach young working dogs techniques before transferring over to more realistic training.. Play aggression can also cause a nuisance and even injury to pet owners and children if not channeled and managed properly. Nonetheless, it is handled differently and should not be confused with any of the mature forms. ...

1.0 INTRODUCTION. The nature versus nurture topic has been an unremitting debate for various aspects of human behavior including aggressive behavior. Aggressive behavior is any behavior exhibited verbally or physically with the intention to destroy property or to injure or infuriate another person. There are studies supporting the source of aggression to be innate, indicating links between behavior and biochemical activities, while other studies have considered environmental and societal factors as influences on behavior.. The founder of behaviorism John B. Watson argued that the conditioned response was viewed as the smallest unit of behavior, from which more complicated behavior could be created. Evidence supporting aggression as a learned behavior comes from studies of behavior in experimental and natural settings, social learning theory and the effect of cultural and social variables.. Biological theories propose that aggression may have a chemical, hormonal or genetic component. Scientists ...

We observed a SKF 86002 Dihydrochloride substantial upsurge in anxiety-like behavior in Mouse monoclonal to CD54.CT12 reacts withCD54, the 90 kDa intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1). CD54 is expressed at high levels on activated endothelial cells and at moderate levels on activated T lymphocytes, activated B lymphocytes and monocytes. ATL, and some solid tumor cells, also express CD54 rather strongly. CD54 is inducible on epithelial, fibroblastic and endothelial cells and is enhanced by cytokines such as TNF, IL-1 and IFN-g. CD54 acts as a receptor for Rhinovirus or RBCs infected with malarial parasite. CD11a/CD18 or CD11b/CD18 bind to CD54, resulting in an immune reaction and subsequent inflammation. aggressor rats in comparison with the nonaggressive group. Furthermore period taken to beat the intruder ...
OBJECTIVE: This article analyses changes in aggressive behaviour throughout the course of dementia. DESIGN: Prospective, 10 year, longitudinal study of aggressive behaviour in dementia, with autopsy follow-up. SETTING: Subjects with dementia, living at home with a carer, Oxfordshire, UK. PARTICIPANTS: Ninety-nine people with dementia (Alzheimers disease and/or vascular dementia) who were living at home with a carer. MEASURES: At 4-monthly intervals, the carers were interviewed about the subjects and the subjects were assessed cognitively. Subjects behaviour was assessed using the Present Behavioural Examination. This is an investigator-based, semi-structured interview consisting of eight main sections monitoring behavioural and psychological change. Eight different aspects of aggressive behaviour were assessed in detail and comparison made with other relevant factors. RESULTS: Verbal aggression is the most common and longest lasting form of aggressive behaviour. Aggressive resistance and physical

The challenge hypothesis outlines the dynamic relationship between testosterone and aggression in mating contexts. It proposes that testosterone promotes aggression when it would be beneficial for reproduction, such as mate guarding, or strategies designed to prevent the encroachment of intrasexual rivals. The challenge hypothesis predicts that seasonal patterns in testosterone levels are a function of mating system (monogamy versus polygyny), paternal care, and male-male aggression in seasonal breeders. The pattern between testosterone and aggression was first observed in seasonally breeding birds, where testosterone levels rise modestly with the onset of the breeding season to support basic reproductive functions. However, during periods of heightened male aggression, testosterone levels increase further to a maximum physiological level. This additional boost in testosterone appears to facilitate male-male aggression, particularly during territory formation and mate guarding, and is also ...

To the libertarian argument that violations of property -- including trespasses on land -- constitute aggression, these critics respond that property ownership itself is aggression because it limits the freedom of others.

The present study shows that mildly increased Mecp2/MECP2 expression leads to alterations in male social aggression. Using C57BL/6N versus FVB/N mice (with their known inherent strain differences in aggressive behavior) (Mineur & Crusio, 2002; Pugh et al, 2004) as models, we demonstrate that the direction of change upon mild Mecp2 overexpression in this behavioral target domain is subject to modification by the genetic background. In other words, the resulting lower or higher social aggression depends on the basic genetic make‐up of a particular subject. Hints of MECP2 influencing aggressive behavior could also be shown in two independent cohorts of schizophrenic men, with a polymorphism in the 3′UTR of the gene co‐determining both the level of MECP2 expression as well as of aggression. The genotype‐dependent expression difference in men found in PBMC (around 50%) is in the range of the transgenic overexpression in both mouse strains, emphasizing the physiological significance of these ...

Spain. SUMMARY. Impulsivity is a trend that can be found in the expression of different behaviors. In human medicine, impulsivity is commonly linked to disorders such as impulsive aggression, pyromania, pathological gambling, and sexual impulsions (Hollander, 2000). In veterinary medicine, impulsivity is commonly referred to aggressive behavior and can be defined as a reduction or a complete lack of warning signals previous to attack. The impulsive dog typically bites without the normal signs of aggression such as growls or bared teeth.. Impulsivity is more a sign than a diagnosis itself. In fact, impulsivity can be found as a component of the aggressive sequence of common canine aggression problems. From a clinical point of view, the manifestation of impulsivity can be very challenging to the clinician for three different reasons: first, it makes diagnosis more difficult; second, it is an element of bad prognosis; and third, it complicates treatment. DIAGNOSIS. Aggression in dogs can be related ...
One of the first large prospective studies (1997, n = 807) controlled for initial levels of child antisocial behaviour and sex, family socioeconomic status and levels of emotional support and cognitive stimulation in the home.11 Even with these controls, physical punishment between the ages of six and nine years predicted higher levels of antisocial behaviour two years later. Subsequent prospective studies yielded similar results, whether they controlled for parental age, child age, race and family structure;12 poverty, child age, emotional support, cognitive stimulation, sex, race and the interactions among these variables;13 or other factors.14-17 These studies provide the strongest evidence available that physical punishment is a risk factor for child aggression and antisocial behaviour.. A landmark meta-analysis published in 200218 showed that of 27 studies on physical punishment and child aggression conducted up to that time (that met the criteria of the meta-analysis), all found a ...
MANKATO, Minn. - The Minnesota Vikings are waving a help-wanted banner over their depleted offensive line.. Offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz has a sports hernia, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation. If the injury requires surgery, Schwartz might need 4-6 weeks to recover. Saints defensive back Jabari Greer reportedly will miss the entire preseason while undergoing a sports hernia procedure. Schwartz returned to the Twin Cities on Friday, Aug. 3 to have an abdominal strain examined to determine whether it is related to hip surgery that sidelined him for the 2011 season. Coach Leslie Frazier said general manager Rick Spielman would troll the waiver wire for linemen to supplement a unit that is down to 12 healthy players. Tackles Pat Brown (sprained knee) and DeMarcus Love (shoulder) also are sidelined. Were going to bring in some guys to work out and take a look, because you dont want to get down to 11 or 10, Frazier said Friday, Aug. 3. Schwartz, whom the Vikings ...

Mindfulness is Associated with Lower Aggression by Lowering Rumination. By John M. de Castro, Ph.D.. Mindfulness may restore the emotional resources needed to maintain self-control, and thus may have an important role to play in anger management by helping people to mindfully respond to provocation rather than react with anger.- AMRA. The human tendency to lash out with aggression when threatened was adaptive for the evolution of the species. It helped promote the survival of the individual, the family, and the tribe. In the modern world, however, this trait has become more of a problem than an asset. It results in individual violence and aggression such as physical abuse, fights, road rage, and even murders, and in societal violence such as warfare. It may even be the basis for the horrors of terrorism and mass murder. Obviously, there is a need in modern society to control these violent and aggressive urges.. Aggression may, at least in part, be amplified by anger rumination; an ...

While its easy to assume that all cases of food aggression are a show of dominance, this isnt necessarily the case. In a dog pack, the alpha dogs always eat first after a successful hunt, and then the other dogs get whats left according to their pack position.. For an alpha dog, showing food aggression is a form of dominance, but for dogs with a lower pack position, it can be a sign of anxiety or fearfulness. Remember, in the wild, dogs never know where or when their next meal will be, so its very instinctual for them to gobble up whatever food there is whenever they have it - and to protect it from anything that approaches.. How to recognize food aggression. When a dog is eating, his body will stiffen and he may keep his head down. He is using his body language to hover over the meal and protect it.. Other signs are that the whites of your dogs eyes may be visible, their ears are held back, their tail is lowered, or their hackles may rise. A dog may show any or all of these signs. ...
Aggression is the most serious and dangerous behavior problem that dog owners may need to face. Since there are many different types of aggression, making a diagnosis, determining the prognosis (the chances of safe and effective correction) and developing an appropriate treatment plan are usually best handled with the help of a veterinary or applied animal behaviorist.
VetVine is an accredited Continuing Education provider for veterinary professionals and resource of expert-driven pet health information for pet owners. This is the forum topic view page. The vomeronasal organ is a sensory organ present in many species that contacts the nasal and oral cavities. It is responsible for receiving chemical signals from other cats in the form of pheromones. Many studies in several species have demonstrated that removal or obstruction of the vomeronasal organ causes a decrease in social and reproductive behaviour. To date, no studies in cats have reported spontaneously occurring vomeronasal disease. The purpose of this study was to determine if naturally occurring inflammatory changes to the vomeronasal organ correlate with increased aggression in cats. Study subjects included 20 cats (10 male and 10 female) from multi-cat households presenting for post mortem examination. 6 animals had been euthanized due to severe aggression, while 14 died of other organic causes.

EnviroNews California) - Los Angeles - There have been few instances in the history of the industrial revolution where anyone has actually gone to jail for atrocities committed against the environment. It seems at least pertinent to ask: Why hasnt anyone been put in handcuffs yet for the BP spill for example, or for the Fukushima full-blown triple melt-through that continues to spew cesium, plutonium, and other deadly isotopes into the environment as we speak?. In the case of Fukushima and the Japanese Yakuza-run TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company), they have blatantly lied their little red wagons off at nearly every juncture since the catastrophe in an effort to cover up the severity of the crisis, all the while exposing even more people to deadly poisons, delaying a heightened, aggressive response in Japan and at the international level.. In fact, it took TEPCO nine months to even openly admit that there had been a nuclear meltdown when they knew this from day two or three after the ...

Citation: Dennis, R.L., Cheng, Z.Q., Cheng, H. 2008. Genetic variations in chicken aggressive behavior: The role of serotonergic system. Poultry Science. 87:612-620. Interpretive Summary: Aggression and cannibalism are of increasing concern to animal welfare and production in husbandry industry. Our research group recently investigated the roles of two major serotonin receptor pathways (5-HT1A and 1B) in mediating aggressiveness in laying hens from strains exhibiting high and low aggressiveness. Our findings provide evidence for the heritable aggression mediation through genetic differences in the serotonergic system in chickens. Our results also show two distinct mediating pathways of aggression through the 5-HT1A and 1B receptors that are prominent in birds of low and high aggressiveness, respectively. The understanding of the genetic and environmental regulation of aggression through the serotonergic system is essential for reducing aggression and cannibalism through selective breeding or ...
Premeditated criminal violence has been around for a long time.. Deliberate criminal violence has motive, involves planning, and is cruel and harmful. The motive often involves the attempt at some real or imagined gain, or forceful seizure. Surprise attacks are favored.. Because the evil of such violence is obvious if in clear view, criminals usually attempt to hide such acts, or to obscure their crime with lies. Secrecy and dishonesty are generally indispensable basic tactics for the success of violent criminality. An exception historically is the criminal violence of those who rule tyrannically; their crimes are sometimes brazen, in your face.. Wars of aggression are criminal violence on a massive scale. During the period after the 2nd WW, the last seventy five years that is, there have been lots of those. There is as yet no effective justice served to those who wage wars of aggression. Once a war has been initiated, one can surrender, or fight back, and hope for the best. Prevention is the ...
