What follows is a brief review of recent studies that establish associations or point out linkages between various genes involved in neurotransmitting and various personality traits and behaviors. The discussion focuses primarily on neurotransmitter receptors but also touches on genes involved in neurotransmittor transportation and metabolic pathways. There are nine systems of neurotransmitters (Cooper, Bloom, & Roth, 1996). Based on their biochemical functions, some of them appear to be more relevant to carrying out complex psychological functions than others— therefore, the body of the literature is uneven, concentrating on some neurotransmitting systems and barely touching others.
