Imaging genetics and mind

I just learned, by a post on mindhacks about a new technique to investigate the like between the brain and the mind. In fact, the author of the paper on >Science and Consciousness Review is Thomas Ramsoy.

He found a link between the version (Small or Long allele) of the gene that codes for 5-HT and the levels of 5-HT in the amygdala. Moreover, some papers have shown a link between the link of 5-HT and behavior (anxiety, fear, depression). Quick link to read, go over.
