Abstract: Research in groups of individuals with life histories of suicidal behavior, personality disorder, or criminal offense has unearthed important information. Evidence points to impulsive, or affective aggression as the type most likely to lead to recurrent violence. Moreover, there seems to be a biologica component not found in relation to other forms of aggression. Studies of brain serotonin activity and genetic influences have begun to establish the part played by biology in human behavior.
