Neuroticism as a personality trait represents a heritable risk for psychiatric disorders. The polygenic risk score for neuroticism (N-PRS) is used to study genetic vulnerability to neuroticism. The current data present the association of the genetic risk for neuroticism to neural reward-punishment processing using functional magnetic resonance imaging. N-PRS was computed based on the individual's genotype information and a genome-wide association study on the UK Biobank data. While individuals performed a monetary incentive delay task, their neural activations for upcoming incentives (reward: gain, punishment: loss) were measured in blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signals during the delay phase. Multivariate ANCOVAs were used to analyze BOLD signals for finding the association between N-PRS and reward-punishment processing by the incentive valence (Related research article: H. Park, K.L.

Disord. 293 (2021) 124-132. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jad.2021.06.016). These data can be used as reference data for future studies examining the role of the genetic propensity for personality traits in the context of psychiatric disorders.
