About this book

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 understanding of this greatly understudied set of behaviors.

Reviews

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. Each chapter details the latest research techniques and describes how information gleaned from these studies can guide future investigations.” (Melissa Jones, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2014)
