Why aggression? Neurophysiology of emotion WebinarLIVE!

Why aggression? Neurophysiology of emotion WebinarLIVE!

What is aggression and when is it normal?

Darwin first made the case for the existence of emotion in non-human animals - but how effective are we within the veterinary profession at understanding emotion in our patients? What are the quantifiable changes that take place in an emotional state? Webinar presenter Dr Sally Nixon joins us to take a look at the neurophysiology of emotion and will then apply that to aggression. Just about all of us have been faced with the challenge trying to help an aggressive patient; within this fascinating live webinar Sally will clarify exactly what aggression is, when it’s normal and when and how to intervene.
