Chapter 7 discusses the acceptance in the field of acquired brain injury of the connection between dysexecutive symptoms such as impulsivity, impaired problem-solving, perseveration, or compromised insight and the incidence of aggression. This connection is now receiving much attention in the study of adolescents, psychiatric populations, and alcohol-related violence and prisoners, and reference is made to imaging studies to support a strong association between increased aggression and prefrontal activity.
