Lead-exposed, alcohol-exposed, lead-and-alcohol exposed, and control rats received shock-elicited aggression testing. Lead-exposed and alcohol-exposed animals made significantly more aggressive responses than did the other two groups. These results support previous data by showing that lead exposure may result in increased emotionality and may counteract the effects of alcohol.
