Elevated levels of externalizing behaviour (aggression, oppositional behaviour) in the early years of life can forecast a variety of problems later in childhood. Rabia Chhangur investigates the underlying neurobiological processes that link genes and environment to externalizing behaviour in children. She focuses specifically on the way genetic makeup influences the dopamine system because of its link with reward-based learning and reward sensitivity.
