Mechanism:

  • AA: Decreased number of D2S receptors. [R]
  • A: Slight decrease in number of D2S receptors. [R]
  • C: Normal number of D2S receptors. [R]

The Minor “A” allele is associated with:

  • Increased risk of schizophrenia. [R]

  • Decreased performance of working memory and attentional control tasks (AA and AC). [R]

  • Increased susceptibility of cocaine and Heroin addiction (AA and AC). [R]

  • Tendency of individuals to make negative (Poor) life decisions. [R]

    • These include financial, intellectual, and scientific decisions.

The Major “C” allele is associated with:

  • Normal risk of schizophrenia. [R]

  • Normal performance of working memory and attentional control tasks (AA and AC). [R]

  • Normal susceptibility of cocaine and Heroin addiction (AA and AC). [R]

  • Individuals have a normal tendency to make negative (Poor) life decisions. [R]

    • These include financial, intellectual, and scientific decisions.
