Abstract : Most research in the area of aggression has been concerned with the stimuli or environmental conditions that produce or maintain aggression. Although antecedent variables that are related to the occurrence of aggression are valuable in a preventive sense, perhaps of more practical concern is the identification of those variables which can suppress or control on-going aggression. The investigation shows that shock-induced aggression can be suppressed to a near zero level when each shock-induced aggressive response (measured in hose-biting responses) is followed with additional shock.
