What is the nature of aggressive behavior? How do you think aggressive behavior can be controlled?
Fear and other aversive stimuli are known to cause aggressive behavior, which is controlled by the amygdala. Meanwhile, "the central nucleus of the amygdale is the single most important part of the brain for the expression of emotional responses provoked by aversive stimuli" (Carlson, 2010, p. 368). Aggressive behavior is learned and has been demonstrated by classical conditioning. It is also species-typical and useful functions are served by it (e.g. defending oneself and mate against a predator). Catecholamine's such as epinephrine and stress hormones play a part as well as they are released when a human is threatened, and this leads to the ...
This solution explains the anatomy and physiology involved in aggressive behavior. It also describes how aggressive behavior can be controlled.
