Brain chemistry controls violence and violent behavior
(NaturalNews) Brain chemistry and violence have been linked for some time. The brain governs violent behavior. Research from esteemed universities such as Tulane University, University of California, Stanford University, Cornell Medical Center, Mount Sinai Medical School, University of Pennsylvania, Oxford University, and Yale University have found that the biological and environmental causes of violence are connected.
Some of this research dates back to 1973 and was, at that time, published in well-known journals such as Fortune Magazine. Defects in the hippocampus can cause rage, “as if you poured gasoline on a fire-and it went whoosh!” states Benson E. Ginsburg, a geneticist. David Hamburg, who headed the psychiatry department at Stanford University Medical School, estimates that 200,000 potential presidential assassins live in the United States alone.
