INTRODUCTION We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate the neural correlates of sadness, the prevailing mood in major depression (MD), in a prospective, well-documented community sample followed since birth. METHODS The children, comprising 136 children (65 boys and 71 girls) of mothers with varying levels of depressive(More)
Healthy adults carrying the short (S) allele of the human serotonin transporter gene linked polymorphism (5-HTTLPR) show increased amygdala activation during visual processing of emotionally negative stimuli compared to healthy adults homozygous for the long (L) allele. To determine whether abnormal brain responses during negative emotion appear early in(More)
BACKGROUND CREB1 has previously been implicated in mood disorders, suicide, and antidepressant response. There is some evidence that the T allele in rs4675690, a single-nucleotide polymorphism near the CREB1 gene, is involved in the modulation of neural responses to negative stimuli. It is not known whether differential brain activity during negative mood(More)
