After that, we accessed ABADV (http://www.socsci.uci.edu/ ~jkrichma/ABADV/) and in genes box we put these search terms: "Tshr, Tph1, Tph2, Ddc, Slc18a1, Slc18a2, Slc6a4, Htr1a, Htr1b, Htr1d, Htr1f, Htr2a, Htr2b, Htr2c, Htr3a, Htr3b, Htr4, Htr5a, Htr5b, Htr6, Htr7, Maoa, Maob" and in Brain structure boxwe put "Isocortex, OLF, HPF, CTXsp, STR, PAL, TH, HY, MB, P, MY, CB" (Figure 3).
