FINAL SUMMARY
OF ONE REFERENCE
1998



    "Central Arginine Vasopressin may play a role in enhancing, while Serotonin plays a role in inhibiting, aggressive behavior in personality-disordered individuals. 


Since there is only one reference on this page, the "Final Summary of the Reference" is a quote from that single reference. 

Cerebrospinal Fluid ... 1998   

My comment:   
    This early article suggests a strong possibility that
central Arginine Vasopressin enhances human aggression.  While this aggression enhancement may be inhibited by central Serotonin Arginine Vasopressin may also enhance human aggressive behavior through a mechanism independent of central Serotonin in personality-disordered subjects.

    "Central
Arginine Vasopressin may play a role in enhancing, while Serotonin plays a role in inhibiting, aggressive behavior in personality-disordered individuals. 
    In addition to the possibility of central
Arginine Vasopressin and Serotonin interacting to influence human aggression, central Arginine Vasopressin may also influence human aggressive behavior through a mechanism independent of central Serotonin in personality-disordered subjects.
