Association between the type 4 dopamine receptor gene polymorphism and novelty seeking reports a personality genetics study on the DRD4 exon 3 VNTR genetic polymorphis and personality traits assessed with the Temperament and Character Inventory.
It is a extreme value design with subject selected based on high and low score on the novelty seeking personality trait. It is inspired from another Finnish study: Association between novelty seeking and the type 4 dopamine receptor gene in a large Finnish cohort sample.
