Association of brain processes presumably underlying aggression with serotonin transporter gene polymorphism in men was studied. Carriers of more active gene variant are characterized by higher aggression index, increased component of brain potential mismatch negativity responsible for automatic difference detection, and decreased P300 component characterizing involuntary attention and cognitive control.
