“Behavior originates in the brain, and violence is no exception.” So begins an article by Dr. Debra Niehoff, adjunct professor in the Department of Social and Behavioral Science at Bucks County Community College, which reviews the current literature and then explains both the biologic and environmental factors that may lead to aggressive behavior on the part of both men and women.

Her work appears in Violence and Gender.
