ABSTRACT
This paper gives a brief insight into the basic concepts of biological theories of personality with the purpose of understanding the personality proile of risk for antisocial behaviour in children and adolescents. he interest for the biological processes underlying the diferent personality traits and psychopathology in children and adolescents has increased in recent years. herefore, the aim of this review is to summarize the results of the previous studies on the role of the personality and following neurobiological systems: testosterone, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal gland axis, autonomic nervous system and monoamine neurotransmitters in violent behaviour in children and adolescents. he efect of interaction of diferent biological and psychosocial factors, possible interpretations, as well as directions for further investigations are also pointed out. Conclusion -- Biological processes play a key role in the genesis of violent behaviour. However, further research should also take into consideration the complexity of their interactive relationship and the impact of various adverse environmental factors.

    In some patients with major depressive disorder (MDD), individual illness characteristics appear consistent with those of a neuroprogressive illness. Features of neuroprogression include poorer symptomatic, treatment and functional outcomes in patients with earlier disease onset and increased...

    Rationale: The serotonergic and opioidergic neurotransmitter systems are critical regulators of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis through their respective excitatory and inhibitory inputs. Serotonin transporter (5-HTT) genotype has been studied as a marker of HPA axis dysregulation...
