Abrupt in Behavior ? Parents to be blamed

If your child is impulsive, do not curse him or her. It can may be inherited from you as new research has linked such behavior with “impulsivity” genes.

“Delay discounting” is the tendency strongly influenced by our genetic makeup.

It timely improves as teenagers get older and when given the choice, to take a smaller reward that is available immediately, instead of a larger reward that will be delivered in the future.

Identifying the “delay discounting” genes are important for understanding the basis of psychiatric disorders, especially addictions and other disorders that involve impulsive decision-making.

For this, Andrey Anokhin and his colleagues from the Washington University’s school of medicine did a study of 602 twins.

The results suggest that “delay discounting” gradually improves as teenagers get older — such that 18 year-olds have a greater ability or tendency to wait for the larger delayed reward, as compared to younger teenagers.

Apart from age, genes accounted for about half of the difference among individuals in their level of delay discounting.

Many genes are likely to influence “delay discounting” and the data suggest that these “impulsivity genes” may include genes coding for enzymes that synthesise the neurotransmitter serotonin and receptors where serotonin binds in the brain.

The report was presented at the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology annual meeting in Hollywood, Florida this week.
