In psychology, the term "attack" can refer to a range of behaviors or actions that are intended to harm or offend someone else. These behaviors can be physical, verbal, or nonverbal, and they can be directed at individuals or groups.

Attack behaviors can be motivated by a variety of factors, such as anger, frustration, jealousy, or a desire for power or control. They can also be influenced by psychological and environmental factors, such as past experiences, personality traits, and social and cultural norms.

In psychology, attack behaviors are often studied as a way to understand the underlying causes and consequences of aggression and violence. Psychologists may use a variety of research methods, such as experiments, surveys, and observations, to study attack behaviors and their effects on individuals and society.

Attack is also the buildup of sound at the beginning of a tone.
