Although many psychiatric disorders are "emotional" disorders, no disorders exist for which dysfunctional anger is a necessary feature.

We analyzed data on 1,158 psychiatric outpatients who underwent a semi-structured interview fo...

Five hundred and forty-two clinicians (a response rate of 30%) assessed one of two matched case histories by ma...

In a 100-trial iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma (IPD), with instructions to simulate wartime interactions, competition/aggression was defined as “attacking the opponent,” and “waiting for troop reinforcements” was the noncompetitive a...
