It appears that social information processing is negatively affected by inflammation, but extant research is primarily experimental and comes from laboratory-based manipulations of inflammatory sta...

Examining psychopathic traits at the factor or facet level has revealed that various aspects of psychopathy may be differentially related, even in opposing directions, to important outcomes (e.g., intelligence, emotion regulation). Empirical work on relations between psychopathy and internalizing disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression, has provided evidence for a positive association with antisocial traits. However, findings for the affective domain have been more...

Abstract Increasing evidence indicates that the interaction between testosterone and cortisol is associated with variation in aggressive behavior. However, results are mixed. The current study further explored the association between testosterone, cortisol, and both reactive and proactive aggression in a large sample of university students. Models considered direct and interactive effects between baseline measures of testosterone and cortisol as well as change in hormones in response to a social...

Rape myths are attitudes that implicitly and explicitly blame victims for their own sexual victimization. Greater adherence to rape myths is linked to several negative outcomes, including the neutralization of gender-based violence and the perpetration of sexual violence. Few studies have considered how previous life experiences and individual-level traits influence the development and greater adherence to rape myths. The current study examines how traits associated with the three-factor model o...

Abstract Recent work has generalized Steinberg's (2008) dual systems model of adolescent risk taking behavior to the explanation of crime (Burt, Sweeten, & Simons, 2014; Vazsonyi & Ksinan, 2017). However, risky behaviors and crime are not synonymous and the traits associated with criminal behavior may extend beyond impulsivity and sensation seeking. The current work used a large sample of University students to further explore the generalization of the dual systems model of adolescent risk takin...

Abstract The current work assesses overlap between self-control and psychopathy with a focus on the Grasmick et al. (1993) self-control scale (gscs) and the levenson et al. (1995) self-report psychopathy scale (lsrps). using a sample of undergraduates analyses found the association between the elements of self-control and psychopathy factors was stronger than the association among the elements self-control themselves. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses found that factors emerging from ...

There is consistent evidence to suggest that individuals with low resting heart rate are more likely to engage in a variety of antisocial behaviors. The present study examines whether this finding can be extended to stalking perpetration. Drawing from fearlessness theory and stimulation-seeking theory, as well as conceptual work of Meloy and Fisher, we find that individuals with low resting heart rates had significantly greater odds of engaging in stalking behavior, net of controls for sex, age,...

This research tests two potential explanations of school disciplinary responses: minority threat hypothesis and prisonization of schools. Data from the Arizona Safe and Drug-Free Schools (SDFS) survey and Arizona Youth Survey (AYS) are analyzed using ordinary least squares (OLS) regressions. Findings demonstrate that the percentage of Black, Hispanic, and Native American students was not associated with exclusionary responses to school misconduct, but was linked to decreases in mild and restorat...

Abstract While studies have shown a robust association between sensation seeking (SS) and adolescent marijuana use, comparatively little is known about the mechanisms that potentially account for this association. The current study tests a theoretical model linking SS to marijuana use through risk appraisal and normative influences (i.e., perceived behavior and attitudes of others). Utilizing a nationally representative, cross-sectional sample of high school seniors ( N = 2117), the current stud...
