Serotonin has become the major focus of biological studies of suicidal behavior and impulsive-aggressive behavior in humans. The serotonin transporter (5-HTT) gene is one of the important genes involved in the regulation of serotonin transmission. We examined the association of impulsivity in Korean populations with a functional polymorphism of the promoter region of the 5-HTT gene (5-HTTLPR). We recruited 186 adolescent prisoners and 64 medical students. Impulsivity was measured using the… CONTINUE READING
