Abstract


Animal studies shows that at a much based level, animals tend to leave some mark indicating territorial boundaries like urinating, rubbing a body on the tree etc. In case of chance meeting the strong would dominate over the weaker. The male animal tends to follow the female everywhere. Each species have characteristic mania of fighting adversities like lions blow up there mane, elephants flap and race after the enemy, etc. in any overt show of strength and aggression. The member shall risk a fight to comer female. However, in case of sports aggressive overtures are shown in ready display of strength and stamina. People tend to use illegal but realistic means to boost up their strength or in other words their overt aggression. This is supplemented by chemicals known as "doping in sports". The present paper discusses such an aspect with emphasis on psychobiology of aggression.
