    Cognitive ability has a substantial genetic component and more than 15 candidate genes have been identified over the past 8 years. One gene that has been associated with general cognitive ability is the cholinergic muscarinic 2 receptor ( CHRM2). In an attempt to replicate this finding we typed...

    Previous functional gene group analyses implicated common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in heterotrimeric G protein coding genes as being associated with differences in human intelligence. Here, we sought to replicate this finding using five independent cohorts of older adults including...

    Rationale: The molecular mechanisms underlying susceptibility to psychostimulant addiction remain unclear. Searching for commonalities in the effects of addictive drugs on brain gene expression is a prolific approach to determine transcriptional signatures influencing drug abuse. Objective: We...

    Schizophrenia is widely acknowledged as being a syndrome, consisting of an undefined number of diseases probably with differing pathologies. Although studying a syndrome makes the identification of an underlying pathology more difficult; neuroimaging, neuropsychopharmacological and post-mortem...
