Abstract

Objective: This review aims to critically evaluate the reported biological, psychological and social correlates of aggression in schizophrenia and to delineate those correlates which could be of use clinicallyand those which require further research. Method: The literature from1974-1996 was searched using Psychlit and supplemented by suggestionsfrom senior members of the authors' Department. Results: Past historyof aggression, psychopathology, extrapyramidal side effects of neuroleptic medications, substance abuse, reduced serotonin function, antisocial and impulsive personality traits , neurological/neuropsychological deficits, electroencephalography, neuroimaging abnormalities and environmental factors were all found to be correlated with aggressive behaviour in schizophrenia. However, there are many methodological limitations of previous studies in this field, often leading to inconsistentand inconclusive findings. Conclusions: Some tentative conclusions regarding clinically useful predictors of aggression in schizophrenia can be drawn at this stage. There is a need for methodological limitations of previous studies to be overcome before more firm conclusions canbe reached.
