It has long been clear that there are no genes controlling behavior directly, but that there are behavior regulators in the brain. Numerous neurophysiological, neurochemical and neuropharmacological studies have demonstrated a pivotal role of brain neurotransmitters in the regulation of emotionality and behavior while current knowledge indicates that behavioraffecting genes might act via brain neurotransmitters. The problem of searching for the genetic and neurochemical determinants of… CONTINUE READING
