Project Description

In this article The Roots of Human Aggression, the author examines how violent behaviors are initiated within the brain. By viewing violence as pathology, he attempts to find a common element that unites all violent behaviors. The author had a distinct vision and worked with the illustrators to portray the mysterious “Hypothalamic attack area.”
