Emotion and Disorders of Emotion
You might want to check out this open access special focus issue of Nature Magazine on emotion and disorders of emotion. The starting editorial introduces the articles.

It explores how individual variation in the serotonin transporter gene may interact with personality, emotion regulation and social cognition.
