Description

Physiological arousal reduction has been posited as a general theory of behavior that could unify the behavioral sciences. This study explores physiological arousal reduction in the context of interpersonal aggression in an attempt to further the evidentiary base underlying the general behavioral theory. Participants freely responded to a provocative or non-provocative act by a confederate. Basal skin conductance was measured as a manifestation of physiological arousal. Results indicate that arousal and aggression are poorly correlatively linked, and a need for more wide-ranging research under the auspices of the general theory is expressed.
