      We found a significant gene-environment interaction between variation in the glucocorticoid receptor gene NR3C1 and long-term stress exposure on ADHD symptom count. This effect was further moderated by the serotonin transporter polymorphism 5-HTTLPR. These interactions were reflected in gray matter volume of posterior brain regions involved in processing of social cues. The pattern of findings fit very well with the literature on stress exposure, together with the central role of the two genes in regulation of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis, the primary stress response pathway, and its association with ADHD.
