However, the predictive power of the maladaptive traits was greater for bullying than for cyberbullying; it is possible that the expression of aggression via digital media requires a lower level of personal dysfunction, due to the disinhibitory role of anonymity and the numerous, readily available, opportunities for displaying aggressive behaviour online.
We've riffed endlessly on the whole "Cigare" theme and for a while even packed the bottles in a sort of oversize Cigare box, replete with faux-governmental warnings ("Will lead to disinhibitory behavior") and a citation that it was bottled in La Republica Doonimicana.
The authors write that such strategies may be "driving patients' brains further toward, rather than away from, the pathological disinhibitory state that has long been associated with tinnitus."
The drug has been most strongly associated with the 'chem sex' phenomena, due to its disinhibitory effect but also commonly used as a recreational drug in clubbing.
Although cyberbullying shares some features with traditional bullying, such as power imbalance and intentionality, there are noteworthy distinguishing features: anonymity (Lapi-dot-Lefler & Barak, 2012; Moore, Nakano, Enomoto, & Suda, 2012), the disinhibitory effect of the Internet (Casale, Fiovaranti, & Caplan, 2015), the size of the audience (Sticca & Perren, 2012) and repetition (Ybarra, Espelage, & Mitchell, 2014).

During wrist movement, Purkinje cells (PCs) with somatosensory receptive fields (RFs) in the distal arm are strongly suppressed before movement onset, while DNs with the same RFs show concurrent bursts of activity (disinhibitory control on DNs).
Thus, early bipolar antidepressant activity excreted by lurasidone has been correlated with disinhibitory norepinephrinergic effects of agonistic activity at 5-HT1A (which may play a core mechanism in bipolar depression [78] beyond major depressive disorder [79]) and antagonism at alpha-1 norepinephrine and serotonin 5-HT2A receptors, though the presence of norepinephrine reuptake inhibition (lurasidone is also weak alpha-2a (autoinhibitory, presynaptic) antagonist (Ki = 10.8 nM) for lurasidone [64]) is essential in order to sustain it [61], whereas dopaminergic activity overall may likewise play a major role [80].
In addition, he identified four non-aversive types of instigators: incentive (which prompted the individual to act aggressively because he or she anticipates positive consequences), modeling (which could have four different functions--directive, disinhibitory, emotional arousal, and stimulus-enhancing), instructional (a rewards and punishment system of compliance and obedience), and delusional instigators, or what he referred to as "bizarre beliefs" (Bandura, 1983, p.

Recent studies draw attention to the use of benzodiazepines in cases with manifested suicide risk, on the one hand, due to the "arming" of these persons with a treacherous self-destructive "weapon" and, on the other hand, due to the disinhibitory effect upon the behavior.
