Molecular genetic underpinnings of self-control: 5-HTTLPR and self-control in a sample of inmates

Journal of Criminal Justice, 2015, vol. 43, issue 5, 386-396
Several studies now show that self-control, as proposed by Gottfredson and Hirschi (1990), is at least moderately heritable. Studies of molecular genetic variation related to serotonergic function suggest that the heritability of self-control may be explained, in part, by the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism.
