Abstract : The effects of exposure to various climatic conditions were analyzed to determine whether these conditions could produce aggression or facilitate shock-elicited agression. Paired rats and single monkeys were used as subjects. The effects of independent and simultaneous changes in temperature and relative humidity were investigated in an attempt to produce agression. Temperature, relative humidity, and length of exposure to climatic conditions were varied to determine if these conditons would facilitate shock-elicited aggression. (Author)
