The genetic and environmental etiology of the association between vocabulary and syntax in first grade
Etiology of vocabulary and syntax
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-03-09)
This study examined the genetic and environmental etiology of vocabulary, syntax, and their association in first graders. French-speaking same-sex twins (N = 555) completed two vocabulary tests, and two scores of syntax ...
A longitudinal twin study of callous-unemotional traits during childhood
Longitudinal twin callous-unemotional, 1
(American Psychological Association, 2018-05)
Previous research indicates that genetic factors largely account for the stability of callous-unemotional (CU) traits in adolescence. However, the genetic-environmental etiology of the development of CU traits has not been ...
Modelling vocabulary development among multilingual children prior to and following the transition to school entry
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-01-03)
Differences between monolingual and multilingual vocabulary development have been observed but few studies provide a longitudinal perspective on vocabulary development before and following school entry. This study compares ...
Commentary : On the importance of looking at nonlinearity and developmental effects – a reflection on Flom et al. (2017)
By examining both linear and curvilinear associations between mental development and activity level, the study by Flom et al. (Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 2017) highlights the importance of going beyond ...
Early warm-rewarding parenting moderates the genetic contributions to callous-unemotional traits in childhood
Warm-rewarding genetic callous-unemotional
Background Previous gene–environment interaction studies of CU traits have relied on the candidate gene approach, which does not account for the entire genetic load of complex phenotypes. Moreover, these studies have ...
Associations between daily mood states and brain gray matter volume, resting-state functional connectivity and task-based activity in healthy adults
(Frontiers Media, 2018-05-01)
Numerous studies have shown differences in the functioning in the areas of the frontal-limbic circuitry between depressed patients and controls. However, current knowledge on frontal-limbic neural substrates of individual ...
