Genetic influences on hormonal markers of chronic hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal function in human hair.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cortisol is the primary output of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and is central to the biological stress response, with wide-ranging effects on psychiatric health. Despite well-studied biological pathways of glucocorticoid function, little attention has been paid to the role of genetic variation. Conventional salivary, urinary and… (More)
