Aggression Research Group

The Aggression Research Program studies the etiology and prevention of aggressive and antisocial behavior. The group's focus is on understanding the development of aggressive and antisocial behavior from a cognitive, information-processing perspective. The program emphasizes the integration of laboratory experiments, longitudinal survey studies, and randomized clinical field trials to advance our knowledge of aggression. However, the program also serves as the locus for connecting a variety of other research efforts addressing related issues such as peer-relations, the effects of arousal and emotions on social judgement, and the effects of the mass media on behavior. Research projects in the program are or have been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of Child Health and Development, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, the program is associated with the NSF supported Center for the Analysis of Pathways from Childhood to Adulthood.
