Scientists from the University of southern California has shown that aggression and rage in a person can be locked. They conducted an experiment on mice, which were not working properly receptor in the brain responsible for aggression. Scientists have found that when it is disconnected excessive aggressiveness in mice immediately disappears.
Because men are endowed with the same receptor, the researchers soon hope to create a cure for aggression, which in addition to the negative social effects that often accompany autism, Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Reactive aggression is a serious problem for many people who are not always able to restrain impulsive violence," says study author Marco Bortolato.
The predisposition to this type of aggression is responsible low levels of the enzyme monoamine oxidase, which entails a strong reaction to stress. This picture can be observed in the body of criminals or overly aggressive mice. If at low enzyme per person in childhood often shouted and used violence in adulthood it can become dangerous for the society of personality.
The block identified by scientists receptor reduces aggression, allows you to control pathological anger.
