From a historic standpoint the 1st experiences at the reaction of the organism to tense events regularly, and at the psychobiology of tension particularly, are most likely these of Cannon and de los angeles Paz, the physiologists who confirmed in 1911 that the adrenal medulla and the sympathetic method are concerned with emergency events. Cannon famous that the venous blood of cats anxious by means of barking canines contained adrenaline, a reaction of the organism which was once avoided through adrenalectomy or through component of the splanchnic nerve innervating the adrenal medulla. Cannon urged that the adrenal medulla used to be appearing in live performance with the sympathetic frightened approach, in order that either platforms have been activated in the course of rigidity. The position of the sympathetic method in keeping with demanding occasions used to be later emphasised by way of the experiments performed by way of Maickel et al. (1967) and through Mason (1968): those authors sincerely confirmed that stressors turn on the sympathetic method inflicting it to unencumber adrenaline and noradrenaline. This line of study might be contrasted with that performed via Hans Selye, founded on of the adrenal cortex within the rigidity reaction. Selye's findings and theories originated the function the so-called hypothalamic - pituitary - adrenal cortex (HPA) version of tension: briefly, in the course of rigidity adrenocorticotropic hormone is published from cells of the anterior pituitary and elicits secretion of glucocorticoids from the adrenal cortex.

Since, in such contexts, aggressive behavior can be considered a successful response to stress, a number of researches have pointed to the study of the factors involved in the expression of this behavior during inescapable shock experiences. Pharmacological as well as neurochemical studies have shown that a number of neurotransmitter systems modulate aggressive behavior induced by inescapable shock (Valzelli, 1981).
