SHR # 1121 :: Roid Rage In Rats? Testosterone Effects On Aggressive Motivation, Impulsivity And Tyrosine Hydroxylase ::

Guest: Dr. Ruth Wood

Testosterone has been blamed for outburst of aggression in men. The media loves to scream Roid Rage anytime a person acts inappropriately and its discovered they are using this hormone. So does Roid Rage really exist? Dr. Wood's group looked at rats receiving the equivalent human dose of seven hundred and fifty milligrams of testosterone a day and how prone they were to inappropriate bouts of aggression and impulsivity. This is a very important study as it will either ratify or refute the way people think about inappropriate behavior and its linkage to testosterone.
