    Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, Milwaukee, WI 53211, USA
    Int J Androl 32:140-8. 2009

    Physiol Behav 99:451-6. 2010
    ..These results add to earlier reports of an association between T and sensation-seeking. In addition, our results also indicate that genetic variation in DRD4 is independently associated with SSS sensation-seeking...

    Department of Anthropology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
    Am J Phys Anthropol 143:100-11. 2010

    Am J Hum Biol 23:149-67. 2011

    Dan T A Eisenberg
    Department of Anthropology, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington
