Abstract
A negative blood oxygen level - dependent (BOLD) has been associated with a high concentration of GABA using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and fMRI. Subjects with long-allele carriers have seen with high concentration of serotonin in Rostral Subgenual portion of the anterior cingulate cortex (rACC). In this paper, we investigate the effect of serotonin concentration on hemodynamic responses. Our results show a negative BOLD signal in rACC in the subjects with long-allele carriers. In contrast, the subjects with short-allele carriers showed positive BOLD signals in rACC. These results suggest that the serotonin transporter gene impacts the neuronal activity and eventually the BOLD signal similar to GABA.
