Posted on March 19th, by Dr. Francis Collins. Serotonin is best known for its role as a chemical messenger in the brain, helping to regulate mood, appetite, sleep, and many other functions. It exerts these influences by binding to its receptor on the surface of neural cells.   Dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by sustained or intermittent muscle contractions causing abnormal, often repetitive movements and/or postures. Dystonic movements are typically patterned and twisting, and may be associated with tremor. Dystonia is often initiated or worsened by voluntary action and associated with overflow muscle activation. Dystonia can be .

Author and researcher, Samuel H. Barondes has written a book entitled, Mood Genes: Hunting for the origins of mania and depression, in which he elaborately describes the extended journey of mood genes.

The journey begins with the evolution of the hunt for the genetic basis of these disorders. To a remarkable extent, his work on what might be called the gay, thrill-seeking and quit-smoking genes reflects his own genetic predispositions. That work, which has appeared mostly in scientific journals, has been gathered into an accessible and quite readable form in Hamer's provocative new book, Living with Our Genes (Doubleday; $).
