Psychiatry involves the study and treatment of mental illness, emotional disturbance, and abnormal behavior.
Def. the "branch of medicine that subjectively diagnoses, treats, and studies mental illness and behavioural conditions" is called psychiatry.
"Plasma testosterone was determined in 36 male prisoners; 12 with chronic aggressive behavior, 12 socially dominant without physical aggressiveness and 12 who were not physically aggressive or socially dominant. A battery of psychological tests--the Scale of Susceptibility to Annoyances, the California Personality Inventory, the Adjective Check List, the Garabedian Index of Prison Socialization, the Lykken Measure of Anxiety, and the Buss-Durkee Hostility Inventory--were administered over the same time period. There was a significantly higher level of plasma testosterone in the aggressive group as compared with the nonaggressive group or with the other two groups combined. The socially dominant group also had a significantly higher level of testosterone than the nonaggressive group."
"In the socially dominant group the only correlation reaching significance was that of succorance with testosterone (0.58, P < 0.05)."
"The primary condition of racism refers to the psychological mechanisms and psychiatric problems which arise from this issue of power and will be found in the dominant group."
