    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    Psychiatr Genet 23:204-13. 2013
    ..The evidence, though, was limited mostly to serotonin-related and dopamine-related genes. In the present study, we focused on the oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR)...
  2. doi request reprint Loneliness in adolescence: gene x environment interactions involving the serotonin transporter gene
    Eeske van Roekel
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Child Psychol Psychiatry 51:747-54. 2010
    ..Behavioral genetic studies with twin designs have found a significant genetic component for loneliness in children and adults, but no molecular genetic studies have been conducted to reveal the functional polymorphisms involved...
  3. doi request reprint The dopamine D2 receptor gene, perceived parental support, and adolescent loneliness: longitudinal evidence for gene-environment interactions
    Eeske van Roekel
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Child Psychol Psychiatry 52:1044-51. 2011
    ..Earlier research focused on genes within the serotonin and oxytocin systems, but no studies have examined the role of dopamine-related genes in loneliness. In the present study, we focused on the dopamine D2 receptor gene (DRD2)...
  4. pmc Parental depressive feelings, parental support, and the serotonin transporter gene as predictors of adolescent depressive feelings: a latent growth curve analysis
    Eeske van Roekel
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Youth Adolesc 40:453-62. 2011
    ..Furthermore, no associations were found between 5-HTTLPR genotype and adolescent depressive feelings, and no gene-environment interactions emerged. Limitations of the study and implications of the findings are discussed...

    PLoS ONE 8:e77689. 2013
    ..Adolescents carrying an A allele were more susceptible to negative environments during weekend days than GG carriers. Our findings emphasize the importance of operationalizing the phenotype and the environment accurately. ..

    Maaike Verhagen
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 9:e92768. 2014
    ..Our results underline the importance of sex-stratified analyses when examining effects of the BDNF genotype and the necessity of conducting gene studies to intermediate phenotypes of loneliness. ..
