The new 2016 issue of G2B REVIEWS brings the question of development into focus with a collection of reviews by researchers who are leading efforts to understand how brain and behavior are shaped during the formative years of early life, and decipher the mechanisms by which genes and early environmental experience impact risk for an array of mental illnesses. This collection of 12 reviews provides a very timely perspective on the current state of developmental research across a range of fields and illuminates some of the exciting paths this work is bound for in the coming years.

    There is the interplay between aggression, brain monoamines and the Hedlund white color mutation in American minks. The Hedlund white color mutation increases brain serotonin level in the midbrain and substantia nigra in aggressive minks. Levels of serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) as well as 5-HIAA/5-HT ratio in brain regions of standard (+/+) and Hedlund white (h/h) minks with tame or aggressive behavior towards man. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 vs. corresponding tame minks; #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01, ###P < 0.001 vs. tame +/+ minks; @P < 0.05, @@@P < 0.001 vs. aggressive +/+ minks.
