Asymmetrical frontal resting-state beta oscillations predict trait aggressive tendencies and behavioral inhibition

Other literature type, Article OPEN
Hofman, D. ; Schutter, D.J.L.G. (2012)

Asymmetrical patterns of frontal cortical activity have been implicated in the development and expression of aggressive behavior. Along with individual motivational tendencies, the ability to restrain one's impulses might be a factor in aggressive behavior. Recently, a ... View more
