Paediatric conduct disorders characterised by aggressive traits and/or social impairment: from preclinical research to treatment
Aggression is a basic physiological trait, which can lead to maladjustment, social impairment and crime when expressed in the wrong context. As knowledge about aggression aetiology is limited and current treatment strategies are insufficient, the Aggressotype project is working on closing this gap.
Overview: the study concept
Get an insight into the work of Aggressotype, how we investigate the aetiology of maladaptive aggression in paediatric conduct disorders most strongly predisposing to pathological aggression, and how we employ highly innovative approaches in humans and animal models to maximize the project's output.
Facts and figures
Find out more about the background of the two most frequent psychiatric disorders, the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and the Conduct Disorder, and to get an impression of how Aggressotype wants to improve individualized treatment for people affected by these disorders.
