Friendship experiences and anxiety among children : a genetically informed study
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
This study examined (a) whether, in line with a gene-environment correlation (rGE), a genetic disposition for anxiety puts children at risk of having anxious friends or having no reciprocal friends; (b) to what extent these ...
The dark side of friends : a genetically informed study of victimization within early adolescents’ friendships
(Taylor & Francis, 2015)
Using a genetically informed twin design, this study examined (a) whether, in line with gene–environment correlation (rGE), a genetic disposition for anxiety puts children at risk of being victimized by a close friend or ...
Does cortisol moderate the environmental association between peer victimization and depression symptoms? a genetically informed twin study
Many youths who are victimized by peers suffer from depression symptoms. However, not all bullying victims become depressed and individuals’ biological sensitivity may play an important moderating role in this regard. ...
Longitudinal links between gambling participation and academic performance in youth : a test of four models
Gambling participation and academic achievement
Gambling participation and low academic performance are related during adolescence, but the causal mechanisms underlying this link are unclear. It is possible that gambling participation impairs academic performance. ...
Links between friends' physical aggression and adolescents' physical aggression : what happens if gene-environment correlations are controlled?
Exposure to deviant friends has been found to be a powerful source of influence on children’s and adolescents’ aggressive behavior. However, the contribution of deviant friends may have been overestimated because of a ...
The expression of genetic risk for aggressive and non-aggressive antisocial behavior is moderated by peer group
Numerous studies have shown that aggressive and non-aggressive antisocial behaviors are important precursors of later adjustment problems. There is also strong empirical evidence that both types of antisocial behavior are ...
Personal and familial predictors of peer victimization trajectories from primary to secondary school
Predictors of peer victimization trajectories
(American Psychological Association, 2016-07)
Using a sample of 767 children (403 girls, 364 boys), this study aimed to 1) identify groups with distinct trajectories of peer victimization over a six-year period from primary school through the transition to secondary ...
Environmental influence of problematic social relationships on adolescents' daily cortisol secretion : a monozygotic twin-difference study
(Cambridge University Press, 2017-02)
BACKGROUND: This study investigated the potential environmental effects of peer victimization and the quality of relationships with parents and friends on diurnal cortisol secretion in mid-adolescence. METHOD: ...
Gene-environment correlation linking aggression and peer victimization : do classroom behavioral norms matter?
Using a genetically informed design based on 197 Monozygotic and Dizygotic twin pairs assessed in grade 4, this study examined 1) whether, in line with a gene-environment correlation (rGE), a genetic disposition for physical ...
Evidence of a unique and common genetic etiology between the CAR and the remaining part of the diurnal cycle : a study of 14 year-old twins
Introduction By and large, studies have reported moderate contributions of genetic factors to cortisol secreted in the early morning and even smaller estimates later in the day. In contrast, the cortisol awakening ...
