- Aggressotype researchers unravels the role of testosterone in brain activity to social threat. As published in June 2015 in the prestigious journal Science Advances Karin Roelofs and coworkers found out that testosterone biases the amygdala toward social threat approach. The study shows that testosterone administration increases amygdala response in healthy women during threat approach and decreases it during threat avoidance. These findings support and extend motivational salience models by offering a neuroendocrine meachnism of motivation-specific amygdala tuning.
