Towards an endophenotype for amygdala dysfunction  

Studies have confirmed the important participation of the amygdala in social perception, such as processing faces, and generated hypotheses about its role in mental illness, such as autism. Yet the precise role that the amygdala might play in mediating an endophenotype for social dysfunction remains poorly understood. This study plans a systematic and in-depth investigation of this topic.
