This chapter examines the neural bases of aggression and describes how they affect human functioning. It describes the results of lower animal research on the effects of brain stimulation and lesioning. It identifies the brain stem and the limbic system as important neural influences on aggression. The findings of stimulation studies indicate that aggressive behaviours can be produced . The study of neural influences on aggression has indicated that A. one specific region of the brain controls aggression. B. activating the amygdala can facilitate aggressive outbursts in humans. C. activating the occipital lobe can cause a tyrant monkey to be more docile. D. activating the frontal lobe can trigger aggressive behavior.
Aggression is also differentiated from similar but distinct concepts including antisocial behavior, juvenile delinquency, coercion, assertiveness, aggressive cognition, and aggressive affect. This chapter provides readers with a clear understanding of what aggression and violence are as well as what they are not. Mechanisms controlling aggressive behavior started to be identified from late 20's of the 20th century and subsequent research described such mechanisms in great detail. While the findings are of great relevance for the understanding of aggression per se, they provide limited insights into the mechanisms of abnormal aggression i.e. those mechanisms that underlie aggression-related.

From the book reviews: “This book reviews the neurobiological underpinnings of aggression and violence. The target audience includes neurobiologists, neuroscientists interested in social behavior in general and aggressive behavior in particular.
This is an excellent reference on this important, developing area of : Springer-Verlag Wien. Violence, like all human behavior, is controlled by the brain.
From the everyday road rage, to domestic violence, to a suicide bombing, the biology of anger and aggression is the root cause of most violent behavior.
Violence can activate some of the same circuits of addiction in individuals, especially males, who seek out violence. In recent years, a number of functional and structural neuroimaging studies have investigated the neural bases of aggressive and violent behaviour in children and adolescents.
Most functional neuroimaging studies have persued the hypothesis that pathological aggression is a consequence of deficits in the neural circuits involved in emotion by: Most of the time the neural circuits of aggression are life-saving, as when a mother instantly reacts aggressively to protect her child in danger, but sometimes they misfire and violence.
The first hurdle in researching aggression is how to define it. It is an easier task with animals, who tend to display stereotyped patterns of violence such as killing to gain food or territory.
With humans and non-human primates, classifying aggression becomes more difficult because there is complication of intent. two forms of aggression, including the apparent parallel between similar forms of aggression in humans and other animals as well as their neurological bases, is considered below.
Neural basis of aggression and rage Twoof themodelsdescribedabove –defensiverageandpredatory attack – have been studied extensively in the cat with respect to their.
The book will also offer important information to neurologists and psychiatrists dealing with aggressive behavior in the clinic and ultimately, may provide means to understand, and on the long run, to discover novel approaches to the treatment of abnormal human aggression.
The problem of defining aggression—and thus differentiating it from violence—has already been discussed in Chapter 2 by David Crowell and continues to be an issue throughout this book.
The position taken in this chapter is that it is clinically useful to consider extreme aggression or violence as a separate category of behavior. Epidemiology and Genetics. A recent World Health Organization report provided a 1-year worldwide estimate of million people dying from either self-inflicted or interpersonal violence (excluding armed conflict), with a much larger number of nonfatal victims of violence (), most of which being unplanned acts representing impulsive of episodic or intermittent impulsive.
from Part II - BIOLOGICAL BASES OF VIOLENCE By Jean r. Séguin, Patrick Sylvers A neural basis for sociopathy. Archives of General Psychiatry, 57, – violence, and aggression: A report of the Vietnam Head Injury Study.
Neurology, 46, – Animal models using a wide range of species, from tiny fruit flies to our primate cousins, have proven invaluable for understanding the neural bases of this kind of aggression.
However, technological advances have made modern humans much more adept at escalated forms of aggression and violence compared to other animals. Michael was just reading a very violent book. Now, when he walks through his school, he interprets other students' shouts as violent instead of as simply excited.
The fact that his mind now interprets ambiguous events as violence, because the concept of violence was there already, is called _____.
Alcohol-related aggression and violence are a widespread cause of personal suffering with high socioeconomic costs. Innearly one in three violent acts in Germany was committed under the. This volume assembles the leading aggression researchers both at the preclinical and clinical level.
They review the current state of knowledge about neural mechanisms of aggressive behavior and point to the need for innovative methodologies to further our.
One mechanism that helps us control our negative emotions and aggression is a neural connection between the amygdala and regions of the prefrontal cortex (Gibson, ). The prefrontal cortex is in effect a control center for aggression: when it is more highly activated, we are more able to control our aggressive impulses.
The Cambridge Handbook of Violent Behavior and Aggression - edited by Daniel J. Flannery September From the book reviews: “This is an essential read for researchers and clinicians interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of aggressive behaviors.
It illustrates how an understanding of the neural mechanisms of aggression is integral to the development of novel treatment interventions. Despite the attention paid to violence, little is understood about its neural basis in schizophrenia. On a psychological level, aggression in schizophrenia has been primarily attributed to psychotic symptoms, desires for instrumental gain, or impulsive responses to perceived personal slights.
Some of these studies address aggression in general, whereas others are specific to bullying behavior as a distinct type of aggression. In order to investigate the relationship between exposure to violence and the development of aggressive behavior, Huesmann et al.
.The Social Psychology and Neuroscience Lab in the College of Humanities and Sciences is studying psychopaths, revenge, domestic violence, and whether violence can be treated like an addiction. From left: Doctoral students Emily Lasko, Sam West and Alexandra Martelli, and David Chester, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of.In this comprehensive book, editors Phillip R.
Shaver and Mario Mikulincer have assembled chapters from international experts to provide a broad-based and multidisciplinary analysis of aggression and violence, their negative consequences, and promising interventions.
