Evidence for heritability of biogenic amine levels in the cerebrospinal fluid of rhesus monkeys.


Susceptibility to several human psychopathological disorders is under partial genetic influence, and many of these disorders have biological correlates that may form part of the basis of this vulnerability. In humans, alterations in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) metabolite levels of the amine transmitters norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin have been… (More)
