People behave aggressively because of the death of brain cells

Novosibirsk scientists have argued that human aggression has a scientific basis. Aggressive behavior is associated with excessively rapid death of brain cells. The lack of neurons or their overabundance, experts say, can cause depression, other mental diseases, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

In the experiment, scientists noticed that in the region of the hippocampus aggressive laboratory mice increased proBDNF protein concentration. This substance belongs to the markers of nerve cell death.

The assumption of scientists is too early to form in a specific scientific theory. This requires additional research and experiments. The plans for the near future to see what happens in the brain during outbreaks of aggression.
