Vasopressin/Serotonin Interactions in the Anterior Hypothalamus Control Aggressive Behavior in Golden Hamsters
Studies in several species of rodents show that arginine vasopressin (AVP) acting through a V1A receptor facilitates offensive aggression, i.e., the initiation of attacks and bites, whereas serotoninExpand

Neural Connections of the Anterior Hypothalamus and Agonistic Behavior in Golden Hamsters
In male golden hamsters, offensive aggression is regulated by an interaction between arginine-vasopressin and serotonin at the level of the anterior hypothalamus. The present studies were conductedExpand

Testosterone facilitates aggression by modulating vasopressin receptors in the hypothalamus
In many species, testosterone treatment facilitates offensive aggression tested in resident-intruder models. As the mechanisms of action of testosterone remain unclear, we hypothesized thatExpand

Serotonin regulation of aggressive behavior in male golden hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus).
These studies examined the neurochemistry and neuroanatomy of the serotonin (5-HT) system innervating the anterior hypothalamus (AH) and the interaction of 5-HT receptor agonists with arginineExpand

Isolation and the stress of being bullied.
Approximately one-third of children report being victims of bullying, and this victimization has been linked to a number of negative psychological outcomes. In the present study, we examined theExpand

Coping With the Stress of Being Bullied
The stress of being bullied has been associated with a wide range of negative consequences. In the present study, the authors hypothesized that the process of adapting to and coping with bullyingExpand

Behavioral and Neurobiological Consequences of Social Subjugation during Puberty in Golden Hamsters
In golden hamsters, offensive aggression is facilitated by vasopressin and inhibited by serotonin. We tested whether these neurotransmitter systems respond to modifications resulting from the stressExpand

Repeated exposure to social stress alters the development of agonistic behavior in male golden hamsters
In male golden hamsters, exposure to social stress during puberty alters aggressive behavior. Interestingly, agonistic behavior undergoes two major transitions during puberty: a decline in attackExpand

Stress facilitates consolidation of verbal memory for a film but does not affect retrieval.
The effect of psychosocial stress on distinct memory processes was investigated in 157 college students using a brief film, which enabled comparison of verbal and visual memory by using a singleExpand

Neural circuitry of play fighting in golden hamsters
In hamsters, play fighting matures gradually into adult aggression. As these two behaviors share many similarities in this species, we predicted that a single neural circuitry controls theirExpand
