It has been suggested (Scott, 1958; Valzelli, 1967) that aggression is not a unitary concept. This premise is based on the fact that stimulus situations eliciting aggression are so diverse and hence there must be several types of behavior. It followed from this that there would be a variety of physiological substrates involved in the mediation of these different aggression types. Only recently, however, has any systematic attempt been made to list the types of aggression and indicate a basis for classification. Moyer (1968), suggested that if there were several forms of aggression, then progress in understanding the general phenomenon of this behavior could be made only when the various types were carefully and operationally defined. The definitional phase must then be followed by research in which experimental manipulations are applied to the subjects who are then tested in a variety of situations which define the various classes of aggression. A given manipulation may very well facilitate one kind of aggression, suppress another, and have no effect on a third (Moyer, 1968).
