Negative emotionality and excitement/agitation fully transmitted the effect of cognitive deficits on impulsive aggression in meditational models, and the putative mediating role of negative emotionality on the impact of Cognitive deficits on aggression was explored. Expand
Impulsivity in early psychosis: A complex link with violent behaviour and a target for intervention
TLDR
The data suggest that impulsivity is a predictor of VB when analyzed independently and as part of a multi-factorial model and that early intervention strategies in psychotic disorders should include evaluation of impulsivity considering it is linked to increased risk ofVB and may respond to treatment. Expand

Neuropsychological correlates of violence in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Subjects of the present study were high-functioning outpatients who may not have attained a level of neurological impairment inducing constant uncontrollable outbursts of irritative aggression in their daily living, and the importance of defining in detail the clinical characteristics of the subjects studied is discussed. Expand

TLDR
Cognitive impairment appears to be more a feature of schizophrenia than of violent behaviour, although there is evidence that a combination of schizophrenia and violent behaviour is associated with greater cognitive deficits. Expand
