Twin classroom dilemma : to study together or separately?
(American Psychological Association, 2018-07)
There is little research to date on the academic implications of teaching twins in the same or different classroom. Consequently, it is not clear whether twin classroom separation is associated with positive or negative ...
The moderating role of peer norms in the associations of social withdrawal and aggression with peer victimization
Peer norms, social withdrawal and victimization
(American Psychological Association, 2018-08)
This study examined the moderating role of classroom injunctive norms salience regarding social withdrawal and regarding aggression in the longitudinal association between these behaviors and peer victimization. A total ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
The gene–environmental architecture of the development of adolescent substance use
Gene–environmental architecture of adolescent substance use
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-02-19)
Background: Using a longitudinal twin design and a latent growth curve/autoregressive approach, this study examined the genetic-environmental architecture of substance use across adolescence. Methods: Self-reports of ...
Identifying at-risk profiles and protective factors for problem gambling : a longitudinal study across adolescence and early adulthood
(American Psychological Association, 2018-03-19)
Past studies have identified various risk and protective factors for problem gambling (PG). However, no study has examined the interplay between these factors using a combination of person-centered and variable-centered ...
Serotonin transporter promoter methylation in peripheral cells and neural responses to negative stimuli : a study of adolescent monozygotic twins
(Springer Nature, 2018-08-08)
Several studies have examined associations between peripheral DNA methylation patterns of the serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) promoter and symptoms of depression and anxiety. The SLC6A4 promoter methylation has also ...
