Neural correlates of genetically abnormal social cognition in Williams syndrome
Functional neuroimaging found reduced amygdala activation in individuals with WBS for threatening faces but increased activation for threatening scenes, relative to matched normal controls, suggesting a genetically controlled neural circuitry for regulating human social behavior.

Methodological Issues in Group-Matching Designs: α Levels for Control Variable Comparisons and Measurement Characteristics of Control and Target Variables
This paper considers the appropriateness of the commonly made prediction that groups that are matched for a control variable but are not matched for chronological age should perform at equivalent levels on the target variable and describes the benefits of a method that focuses on characterizing a disorder on a case-by-case basis and then aggregating the cases.
