Low HDL cholesterol, aggression and altered central serotonergic activity
TLDR
This study gives further support to existing evidence indicating that in some individuals, the probability of exhibiting impulsive and violent behaviors may be increased when cholesterol is low and suggests that low cholesterol and alterations in 5-HT activity may be causally related. Expand
Age of alcoholism onset. II. Relationship to susceptibility to serotonin precursor availability.
TLDR
The data are compatible with the interpretation that patients with an early onset of alcoholism have a preexisting serotonin deficit that could manifest itself by an increase alcohol intake early in life and by an increased vulnerability to fluctuations in precursor availability. Expand
Depression, suicide, and aggression in alcoholics and their relationship to plasma amino acids
TLDR
The data suggest the existence of a subgroup of alcoholics with marked amino acid abnormalities at risk for manifestations of depression, suicide, and aggression, and a significant association between histories of aggression and depression. Expand
Cortisol in alcoholics with a disordered aggression control
TLDR
Data are interpreted as indicating that individuals displaying severe forms of violence could have a dysregulated HPA function revealed by exposure to excessive amounts of alcohol. Expand
Long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids decrease feelings of anger in substance abusers
TLDR
New evidence is provided indicating that supplementation with long-chain n-3 PUFAs could be beneficial in the treatment of some individuals with aggressive tendencies, and this trial was doubleblind, randomized, and lasted 3 months. Expand
Age of alcoholism onset. I. Relationship to psychopathology.
TLDR
In an attempt to divide alcoholics into two groups of individuals presenting type 1 and type 2 characteristics, the age of alcoholism onset was used as a criterion because type 2 alcoholics as well as their fathers had been found to abuse alcohol at a younger age than type 1 patients. Expand
Effects of estrogen and progesterone on sleep patterns of female rats.
TLDR
Both hormone treatments modified sleep, but the combined action of estrogen and progesterone more closely duplicated the sleep patterns observed in the intact animal on the night of behavioral estrus. Expand
Associations between increases in plasma n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids following supplementation and decreases in anger and anxiety in substance abusers
TLDR
These pilot data indicate that ensuring adequate n-3 PUFA intake via supplementation benefits substance abusers by reducing their anger and anxiety levels. Expand
Cerebral perfusion in early and late opiate withdrawal: a technetium-99m-HMPAO SPECT study
TLDR
The results of this preliminary study suggest that the chronic use of opiates results in perfusion abnormalities without corresponding abnormalities on imaging studies of cerebral anatomy and morphology, and that these perfusion defects are partially reversible with short-term abstinence. Expand
Duration and Intensity of Combat Exposure and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Vietnam Veterans
TLDR
The longest duration of combat exposure was found in patients who still suffered from PTSD, and the longest duration was shorter for patients in remission and still short for patients who had never developed PTSD. Expand
