Further evidence for the role of the dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4) gene in attachment disorganization: interaction of the exon III 48-bp repeat and the −521 C/T promoter polymorphisms
In non-clinical low-risk populations 15% of infants show disorganized attachment behavior1,2 with their caregivers in the Strange Situation,3 a mildly stressful laboratory procedure testing infants’Expand

Dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4) gene polymorphism is associated with attachment disorganization in infants
About 15% of one-year-old infants in non-clinical, low-risk and up to 80% in high-risk (eg maltreated) populations show extensive disorganized attachment behavior1, 2 in the Strange Situation Test.3Expand

Association of D4 dopamine receptor gene and serotonin transporter promoter polymorphisms with infants' response to novelty
Effects of DRD4 and 5-HTTLPR length polymorphisms have been reported on neonatal and infant temperament as well as adult personality traits. The 7-repeat form of the DRD4 III exon VNTR polymorphismExpand

Infant genotype may moderate sensitivity to maternal affective communications: Attachment disorganization, quality of care, and the DRD4 polymorphism
Abstract Disorganized attachment is an early predictor of the development of psychopathology in childhood and adolescence. Lyons-Ruth, Bronfman, and Parsons (1999) developed the AMBIANCE codingExpand
