Among other findings, there are abundant data relating low serotonergic activity ± as measured by low cerebrospinal fluid 5-hydroxyindolacetic acid, and a blunted response of prolactin to fenfluramine ± to impulsive behavior. Many studies on testosterone activity show a relation between high plasma levels and a tendency towards aggression. It… Expand
