A role for dopamine neurotransmission in the regulation of motor activity and reinforcement of behavior is supported by considerable evidence. We studied the association between a marker in the dopamine D2 receptor gene (DRD2) and physical activity level in two cohorts. A first cohort consisted of 721 participants from 161 families of the Quebec Family Study (QFS). Physical activity phenotypes were obtained from a three-day diary and a questionnaire probing physical activity during the past… CONTINUE READING
