The current dissertation efforts were made to replicate previous studies and to test the associations between hostile attributional bias (HAB) and aggression. Although it is well established that aggressive individuals show HAB, relatively little is known about neural processes associated with this bias. Therefore, functional neuroimaging methods such as electroencephalogram (EEG) may be useful in determining the underlying neural processes associated with HAB. The major aim of this dissertation was to use brain activity Event-Related Potentials (ERP's) to shed light on the early stages of information processing to examine what are the factors (i, e. feedback) that mediate changes in information processing among healthy male adults.
