About this book

This volume is based on papers presented at a Workshop on the Neuropsychology of Aggression held at Newport Beach, California in March 1974. The Workshop was sponsored by the Neuropsy­ chology Research Review Committee of the National Institute of Mental Health (Grant #MH-23355-0l) and by the Department of Psychobiology of the University of California, Irvine. The goal of the Workshop was to review contemporary approaches to the study of aggression. Thus, the chapters of this book cover not only conceptual issues, but also experimental tech­ niques of genetic analysis, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology and neuroendocrinology. It is hoped that these chapters will be of value to investigators of the many important problems of the nature of the biology of aggression. Especial thanks go to Mrs. Chris Johnson who played a major role both in organizing the Workshop and in preparing the manuscripts for publication. In the latter task Miss Sue McKenney also participated and deserves thanks. Richard E.
