Target tissue sensitivity, testosterone– social environment interactions, and lattice hierarchies

  • Kathleen C. Chambers (a1)
Abstract

The following three points are made. One must consider not only the levels of circulating hormone but the target tissue upon which the hormone acts. Increased testosterone levels alone do not account for differences in displayed intermale aggression, because testosterone and social environment interact in complex ways to influence behavior. A given behavior can be triggered by multiple motivational systems.
