A functional genetic variation of the 5-HT2a receptor affects human memory


de Quervain, D J F; Henke, K; Aerni, A; Coluccia, D; Wollmer, M A; Hock, C; Nitsch, R M; Papassotiropoulos, A (2003). A functional genetic variation of the 5-HT2a receptor affects human memory. Nature Neuroscience, 6(11):1141-1142.

Abstract

Human memory capacity is highly variable across individuals and is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. A roughly 50% heritability estimate indicates that naturally occurring genetic variations have an important impact on this cognitive ability. Therefore, we investigated a functional variation of a memory-related serotonin receptor in 349 healthy young volunteers, and found 21% poorer memory performance in subjects with the rare variant.
