Thyroid hormones and adult interpersonal violence among women with borderline personality disorder
Aggressive behavior in psychiatric patients in relation to hormonal imbalance (Review)
TLDR
The hormonal imbalances that have been noted to accompany aggressive behavior in different psychiatric disorders are summarized to highlight another somatic dimension linked with this behavior.
Is there a relationship between thyroid hormone levels and suicide attempt in adolescents?
TLDR
Investigation of thyroid hormone levels in between adolescents with suicide attempt history and normal population found that serum TSH levels were significantly lower in case group than control group and the individuals with subclinical hyperthyroidism had more suicide attempts than the ones in control group.
Personality traits in attempted and completed suicide
Personality Factors Underlying Suicidal Behavior Among Military Youth
TLDR
Based on results, neuroticism might increase suicide, but extraversion and conscientiousness personality traits are associated with a reduced risk of suicide.
Chronotype Differences in Suicidal Behavior and Impulsivity Among Suicide Attempters
TLDR
Findings suggest that eveningness may be a risk factor for violent suicide attempts by increasing impulsivity, and a significant association between chronotype and type of suicide attempt was detected.
Neurobiological markers for personality, inflammation, and stress A naturalistic study in knee arthroplastic patients
TLDR
Some aggressive and impulsive personality traits in non-disordered persons co-vary with various CSF biomarkers indicating lack of serotonergic control over dopamine signaling, decreased BBB integrity and inflammation.

Temperament and Personality Dimensions in Suicidal and Nonsuicidal Psychiatric Inpatients
TLDR
Although suicidal psychiatric patients have MMPI-2 profiles in the pathological range, they exhibit several differences from nonsuicidal patients, indicating that patients at risk of suicide have specific temperaments as well as personality and defense mechanism profiles.

ABSTRACT: The functional linkage between platelet MAO activity and psychopathology was explored by analyzing temperamental correlates in 40 male subjects by means of scales from the Eysenck
Dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in alcoholism.
TLDR
It is suggested that a reduction in peripheral thyroid hormones may be caused by a direct toxic effect of alcohol on the thyroid gland, which induces a central compensatory activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis with an increased TRH release.
Toward a clinical model of suicidal behavior in psychiatric patients.
TLDR
A stress-diathesis model is proposed in which the risk for suicidal acts is determined not merely by a psychiatric illness but also by a diathesis, reflected in tendencies to experience more suicidal ideation and to be more impulsive and, therefore, more likely to act on suicidal feelings.
Gonadal hormone correlates of sensation seeking and anxiety in healthy human females.
TLDR
An 'inverted U shape' relationship between sensation seeking and plasma FSH levels was showed and lower Thrill and Adventure Seeking scores were also found in subjects with higher levels of 17 beta-estradiol.
