    1. Predictors for self-directed aggression in Italian prisoners include externalizing behaviors, childhood trauma and the serotonin transporter gene polymorphism 5-HTTLPR

      Independent effects of 5-HTTLPR on self-directed aggressive behavior. Contingency analysis of self-directed aggressive behavior by 5-HTTLPR functional activity variants shows a variant dosage effect (L-R χ2 = 8.5, P = 0.014; Pearson χ2 = 8.1, P = 0.017). Triallelic 5-HTTLPR genotypes were grouped as low activity (SS, SLG, LGLG), intermediate activity (SLA, LALG) and high activity (LALA) variants.

    2. Genome-wide association mapping of heritable temperament variation in the Tennessee Walking Horse

      Genome-wide association analysis shows a significant peak on ECA13 for temperament factor 2-tractable in horses.

    3. The influence of AVPR1A genotype on individual differences in behaviors during a mirror self-recognition task in chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)

      L. M. Mahovetz, L. J. Young and W. D. Hopkins

      Male DupB+/− chimpanzees exhibited more scratching and agonistic behaviors than all other sex and genotype cohorts during a mirror self-recognition task.

    4. CDKL5 knockout leads to altered inhibitory transmission in the cerebellum of adult mice

      S. Sivilia, C. Mangano, S. Beggiato, A. Giuliani, R. Torricella, V. A. Baldassarro, M. Fernandez, L. Lorenzini, L. Giardino, A. C. Borelli, L. Ferraro and L. Calzà

      CDKL5 deletion impairs the establishment of a correct GABA- and glutamatergic cerebellar network, leading to locomotion abnormalities.
