Frontostriatal mechanisms could cause aggression towards outgroup members

Time : 23rd of June 2022 11:11:03 AM

People showed an aggressive tendency to harm other people in opposing groups due to increased activity in the brain's reward network, as per a study. This aggression was positively associated with increased neuronal activity in the dorsal and rostral medial prefrontal cortex, ventral striatum, and the nucleus accumbens while deciding the magnitude of aggression.
