Gene context of Impulsive Behavior

  • While several classes of substances of abuse may ameliorate various symptoms of ADHD, individuals with ADHD may also be vulnerable to substance use because of poor judgment or impulsive behavior in social settings [14].
  • Wolfram syndrome and suicide: Evidence for a role of WFS1 in suicidal and impulsive behavior [15].
  • Those rules, and their application to the role of the DRD2 gene in addictive, impulsive behaviors, are reviewed [16].
  • However, a replication study with a larger sample and an investigation of psychiatric patients with pathological levels of impulsivity are necessary to qualify these topographical ERP-parameters of cognitive response control as valid measures of the brain electrical basis of impulsive behavior [17].
  • Taken together, NO appears to play an important role in normal brain 5-HT function and may have significant implications for the treatment of psychiatric disorders characterized by aggressive and impulsive behaviors [18].
