Haas and his collaborators collected saliva samples from more than 120 study participants to perform genetic tests that show the levels of methylation on the OXT gene.
What they found is that participants with greater methylation of the OXT gene--likely corresponding to lower levels of OXT expression--had more difficulty recognizing emotional facial expressions, and they tended to have more anxiety about their relationships with loved ones.
Participants with greater methylation of the OXT gene were less accurate in describing the emotional states of the people they saw in pictures," he said.
