First happiness genes have been located
For the first time in history, researchers have isolated the parts of the human genome that could explain the differences in how humans experience happiness. These are the findings of a large-scale international study in over 298,000 people, conducted by VU Amsterdam professors Meike Bartels and Philipp Koellinger. The researchers found three genetic variants for happiness, two variants that can account for differences in symptoms of depression, and 11 locations on the human genome that could account for varying degrees of neuroticism.
