Influence of 5-HTTLPR genotypes on structural and functional connectivity within amygdala-prefrontal cortex circuitry
TLDR
An important candidate gene for the development and pathophysiology of anxiety and depression is the gene encoding the serotonin transporter promoter protein (locus, SLC6A4; variant, 5-HTTLPR).
Imaging genetics of cognitive functions: Focus on episodic memory
Long story short: the serotonin transporter in emotion regulation and social cognition
The gene encoding the serotonin transporter (5-HTT) contains a regulatory variation that has been associated with anxiety-related traits and susceptibility for depression. Here we highlight recent
Identification of neurogenetic pathways of risk for psychopathology
TLDR
Recent multimodal neuroimaging strategies and studies examining the effects of multiple genes in concert within large subject populations have shown promise in the development of a more complete understanding of the interrelationships between genes, brain function, behavior and associated risk for psychopathology.
Developmental psychopathology in an era of molecular genetics and neuroimaging: A developmental neurogenetics approach
  • L. Hyde
  • Medicine, Psychology
    Development and Psychopathology
  • 2015
TLDR
How neurogenetics and current imaging and molecular genetics approaches can be incorporated into developmental psychopathology perspectives with a goal of providing models for better understanding pathways from among genes, environments, the brain, and behavior is discussed.
Genetic Variation in Serotonin Transporter Alters Resting Brain Function in Healthy Individuals
The neurobiology of individual differences in complex behavioral traits.
  • A. Hariri
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Annual review of neuroscience
  • 2009
TLDR
An overview of a research strategy seeking to integrate these complementary technologies and utilizes existing empirical data to illustrate its effectiveness in illuminating the neurobiology of individual differences in complex behavioral traits is provided.
Dysbindin-1 genotype effects on emotional working memory
TLDR
Effects of variability in DTNBP1 on emotion-specific WM capacity and region-specific task-related brain activation in humans are suggested and altered dopaminergic and/or glutamatergic neurotransmission may be related to the increased WM capacity.

Neuroimaging studies of serotonin gene polymorphisms: Exploring the interplay of genes, brain, and behavior
TLDR
This review will outline the experimental strategy by which genetic effects on brain function have been explored and highlight the effectiveness of this strategy to delineate biological pathways and mechanisms contributing to the emergence of individual differences in brain function that potentially bias behavior and risk for psychiatric illness.
Functional neuroimaging of genetic variation in serotonergic neurotransmission
TLDR
How functional neuroimaging can be used to characterize the effects of polymorphisms in 5‐HT subsystem genes on the response of neural circuits underlying the generation and regulation of mood and temperament as well as susceptibility to affective illness is discussed.
Serotonin Transporter Genetic Variation and the Response of the Human Amygdala
TLDR
Genetically driven variation in the response of brain regions underlying human emotional behavior is demonstrated and differential excitability of the amygdala to emotional stimuli may contribute to the increased fear and anxiety typically associated with the short SLC6A4 allele.
A susceptibility gene for affective disorders and the response of the human amygdala.
TLDR
A potent modulatory effect of the 5-HTTLPR on amygdala reactivity to environmental threat is revealed, which may represent a classic susceptibility factor for affective disorders by biasing the functional reactivity of the human amygdala in the context of stressful life experiences and/or deficient cortical regulatory input.
Beyond affect: a role for genetic variation of the serotonin transporter in neural activation during a cognitive attention task.
TLDR
Functional and structural differences suggest a much broader role for 5-HT transport efficiency in brain processes than previously thought, particularly in frontal cortical regions, anterior cingulate, and cerebellum.
Imaging genetic influences in human brain function
5-HTTLPR polymorphism impacts human cingulate-amygdala interactions: a genetic susceptibility mechanism for depression
TLDR
Morphometrical analyses showed reduced gray matter volume in short-allele carriers in limbic regions critical for processing of negative emotion, particularly perigenual cingulate and amygdala, and relative uncoupling of this circuit.
Early experience and serotonin transporter gene variation interact to influence primate CNS function
TLDR
An environment-dependent effect of the rh5-HTTLPR genotype on CNS 5-HT function is demonstrated and nonhuman primates may provide an important avenue for investigating gene/environment interactions using candidate genes for physiological and behavioral traits.
Mapping the genetic variation of executive attention onto brain activity
TLDR
Genotyping 16 subjects for the DRD4 and MAOA genes found a polymorphism in which persons with the allele associated with better behavioral performance showed significantly more activation in the anterior cingulate while performing the Attention Network Test (ANT).
