‘Genome-wide DNA methylation analysis of aggressive behaviour: a longitudinal population-based study’
Open Access paper from the JCPP
Background – Human aggression is influenced by an interplay between genetic predisposition and experience across the life span. This interaction is thought to occur through epigenetic mechanisms, inducing differential gene expression, thereby moderating neuronal cell and circuit function, and thus shaping aggressive behaviour.
