Neural and Hormonal Mechanisms In Aggression

Here is a quick mindmao I created on the neural and hormonal mechanisms in aggression. I have included the psychologists that either support or criticise the findings, however I have not put what they did. I shall include this information in a separate revision source. The information on this mindmap has been retrieved from The 'Dog' Book and also Collins Student Support Material Book.
