School Psychology Review, v22 n3 p386-402 1993
Examines psychobiological literature pertaining to conduct disorder (CD), with particular emphasis on how such information can increase understanding of youths representing undersocialized aggressive subtype of CD. Reviews literature from neuroanatomical, biochemical, psychophysiological, and pharmacological arenas. Outlines theoretical framework offered by Gray, Quay's application of this model to CD, and empirical strategies used to evaluate assumptions of biobehavioral systems. (Author/NB)
