The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between the daily life events and the availabilities of serotonin transporters (SERT) and dopamine transporters (DAT) in healthy volunteers. Thirty-seven volunteers, 19 males and 18 females, were recruited. The SERT availability was approximated using SPECT and [123I] ADAM while the DAT availability was approximated using SPECT and [99mTc] TRODAT-1. All participants completed the Recent Life Change Questionnaire. The results showed that SERT and DAT may be sensitive to the presence of stressful events.
