Why We Fight (And Watch Fights)
The headline on this article in Science Daily doesn't quite get it right.
It's not that "Aggression [is] As Rewarding As Sex, Food And Drugs, New Research Shows." But--from what I read in the article--it is that aggression seems to use the same reward pathway in the brain as sex, food and drugs.
At least it does in mice. So it probably does in people.
