&NA; Empirical analyses conducted within a causal‐analytic framework (path analysis) on a sample of normal adolescent human males suggested that circulating levels of testosterone in the blood had a direct causal influence on provoked aggressive behavior (self‐reports): A high level of testosterone led to an increased readiness to respond vigorously and assertively to provocations and threats. Testosterone also had an indirect and weaker affect on another aggression dimension: High levels of… Expand
Testosterone and aggression in male and female preschool children
TLDR
Brain maintains that it is unlikely that androgens have a simple causal effect on human aggression and violence, and supports a bi-directional model with androgens both influencing and being influenced by aggressive behavior. Expand
Cortisol Moderates the Relationship between Testosterone and Aggression in Delinquent Male Adolescents
TLDR
Results indicate a moderating effect of cortisol on the relationship between testosterone and overt aggression in delinquent male adolescents, and implications and directions for future research are discussed. Expand
Relationships between aggression and pubertal increases in testosterone: a panel analysis of adolescent males.
TLDR
Panel analyses incorporating concurrent, lagged, and change measures found few significant relationships between aggression and T or pubertal development, and the general absence of T/aggression relationships is discussed. Expand
Testosterone, antisocial behavior, and social dominance in boys: pubertal development and biosocial interaction
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that testosterone relates to social dominance, with the assumption that behaviors associated with dominance differ according to social context. Expand
The role of alcohol and steroid hormones in human aggression.
TLDR
It is clear that a multidimensional approach, combining both biological and psychosocial factors, will be necessary for the development of a more general concept of human aggression in the future. Expand
An exploratory study on self-evaluated aggression and androgens in women
Healthy, premenopausal women completed the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire. Venous blood samples were taken at the mid-cycle phase of the menstrual cycle to determine plasma androgen levels.Expand

TLDR
It is clear that a multidimensional approach, combining both biological and psychosocial factors, will be necessary for the development of a more general concept of human aggression in the future. Expand
Androgen dynamics in the context of children's peer relations: an examination of the links between testosterone and peer victimization.
TLDR
Statistically controlling for age and pubertal status, results indicated that on average verbally bullied girls produced less testosterone and verbally bullied boys produced more testosterone than their nonbullied counterparts. Expand
Salivary testosterone and aggression, delinquency, and social dominance in a population-based longitudinal study of adolescent males
TLDR
A decrease in aggressive and delinquent behavior was observed in a period in which T rises dramatically, and positive associations were observed between T and proactive and reactive aggression and self-reported delinquent behavior. Expand

TLDR
Earlier findings of androgen effects on aggressive and antisocial behavior in male offenders were confirmed for male adolescents from a general population sample, and the results stress the importance of the androgen metabolite DHT. Expand
