In the present study, we administered 20 IU AVP nasally in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind manner to 36 healthy men using a between-subjects design. After drug administration, participants performed a competitive reaction time task (Taylor Aggression Paradigm, TAP) to elicit reactive aggressive behavior while… CONTINUE READING
