John Fossella, Jin Fan, Xun Liu, Kevin Guise, Karin Brocki, Patrick R. Hof, Raja Kittappa, Ronald McKay, Michael Posner
2008 Biological Psychology  
Particular emphasis is placed on converging evidence that links system-level and biochemical studies with models of synaptic function.  ...  In shaping our own imaging genetic hypotheses on the development of Attention Networks, we review relevant literature on core models of synaptic physiology and development in the anterior cingulate cortex  ...  These types of changes might cause relatively minor biochemical changes but would be measurable using neuroimaging, and could influence human brain function in clinically meaningful ways.  ...

Personality traits and vulnerability or resilience to substance use disorders

Annabelle M. Belcher, Nora D. Volkow, F. Gerard Moeller, Sergi Ferré
