Genetic polymorphisms of serotonin and dopamine transporters in mental disorders

Hey guys, this is my potluck for this week (behavioral genetics).  My term paper for this class (and hopefully my research for this summer) is actually a topic of behavioral genetics regarding different polymorphisms in the serotonin transporter gene.  This study was done in humans, but my research will be with macaques.  Still, I thought this was an interesting study linking functional polymorphisms and monoamine transmission with diseases such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s.
