Cohen-Mansfield, Jiska; Marx, Marcia S.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v28 n4 p285-94 1989

Agitated and nonaggressive behaviors were correlated with past stressful events, and physically aggressive behavior was correlated with the lack thereof; no relationships were found between agitated behavior and history of a mental disorder or past leisure habits.
