Low-dose diazepam can increase social competitiveness
EPFL scientists have discovered how low-dose anxiolytics increase the social competitiveness of high-anxious individuals by boosting the energy output of mitochondria in an area of the mammalian brain that controls motivation and reward. Psychologists speak of anxiety in two forms: ‘state' anxiety, which refers to anxiety arising from a particular situation; and ‘trait' anxiety, which refers to anxiety as part of a person's overall personality.
