Imaging-Genetics Applications in Child Psychiatry
Pine, Daniel S.; Ernst, Monique; Leibenluft, Ellen
Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v49 n8 p772-782 Aug 2010
Objective: To place imaging-genetics research in the context of child psychiatry. Method: A conceptual overview is provided, followed by discussion of specific research examples. Results: Imaging-genetics research is described linking brain function to two specific genes, for the serotonin-reuptake-transporter protein and a monoamine oxidase enzyme. Work is then described on phenotype selection in imaging genetics. Conclusions: Child psychiatry applications of imaging genetics are only beginning to emerge. The approach holds promise for advancing understandings of pathophysiology and therapeutics. (Contains 2 figures.)
