Abstract

Neuroticism is a heritable personality trait, characterized by negative emotions such as worrying, feelings of guilt, loneliness and being easily hurt. Increased levels of neuroticism are associated with poor mental health - development of depression in particular - but it remains uncertain whether this association represents a causal effect [1]. Here, we use Mendelian randomization (MR) to investigate whether neuroticism is a causal risk factor for development of depression. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
