Testosterone And Aggression??

Post by gustavo77 on Fri Sep 14, 2018 12:36 pm

I found this:

32 Copyright ©️ 2001 by MJM
REVIEW ARTICLE
The Role of Testosterone in Aggression
Katherine Simpson *† , B.Sc. (Hons.)
ABSTRACT

A lot more to this article but found this interesting.

HOW DOES TESTOSTERONE CAUSE AGGRESSION?
Testosterone acts as a prohormone which when converted into 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5a-DHT)
acts on sustgen receptors or when converted into estradiol by the enzyme aromatase, acts on estrogen
receptors (Figure 1). There is overwhelming evidence that most of the effects of testosterone in mediating
aggression occur after aromatization (33). For example, testosterone induced aggression is concurrent with an elevated level of aromatization and nuclear estrogen receptor activity in the hypothalamic/preoptic area.
Treatment with an aromatase inhibitor blocked this aggression and lowered nuclear activated estrogen
receptors (34,35). Furthermore the intensity of aggressive behaviour was directly correlated with the
aromatase activity (p < 0.02) in the posterior hypothalamus (34)


So it appears that aggression is not directly caused by test but by the aromatazation of test. Thought's anyone??

I read an article not too long ago about aggression and roid rage. And it seemed to make sense for me. It started talking about roid rage and the effects there of, but kind left it wide open when it started talking about getting roid rage confused with High Blood Pressure caused by steroid use.

The only time I start getting edgy or bitchy is when my blood pressure gets out of hand. Once I get control of it, I'm fine. For me, the article had some merrit.

That seems to be a pattern for me too....blood pressure gets high, I get bitchy. Only seems to be when I take some synthetic AAS. Test seems to leave my bp alone...
