English term or phrase: behavioral complacency
Düşük kolestrol seviyesi ile şiddet eğilimi arasındaki ilişkiyi araştıran çalışmalar:
The monkeys fed a low-fat diet exhibited more extreme physical violence than that were not.
Kaplan and his colleagues propose that the links among cholesterol, aggression, and serotonin functioning may have served an important evolutionary role: When foods high in animal fat were abundant, the resultant relatively high serotonergic activity in the brain may have created "behavioral complacency". In times of food scarcity, on the other hand, especially when the scarcity involved foods rich in animal fat, a low plasma cholesterol level may have precipitated impulsive, risk-taking behavior such as aggressive hunting and foraging.
