Threat-related amygdala functional connectivity is associated with 5-HTTLPR genotype and neuroticism.
Communication between the amygdala and other brain regions critically regulates sensitivity to threat, which has been associated with risk for mood and affective disorders. The extent to which theseExpand

Sweet taste sensitivity is influenced by 5-HTTLPR genotype and affected in seasonal affective disorder
(1) 5-HTTLPR study: the stable influence of the 5-HTTLPR (S/L) and rs25531 (A/G) polymorphism in the promoter region of the 5-HT transporter (SERT) gene on basic sweet taste sensitivity in healthyExpand

Concentric strength training at optimal or short muscle length improves strength equally but does not reduce fatigability of hamstring muscles
The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of a 6‐week period of knee flexion strength training at either optimal or short muscle length, on length‐specific muscle strength and fatigue.Expand
