Reduced amygdala response to fearful expressions in children and adolescents with callous-unemotional traits and disruptive behavior disorders.
TLDR
These findings support the contention that callous and unemotional personality traits are associated with reduced amygdala response to distress-based social cues.
The social re-orientation of adolescence: a neuroscience perspective on the process and its relation to psychopathology
TLDR
A relationship between development of brain physiology and developmental changes in social behavior and dysregulation of the social information processing network in this critical period may contribute to the onset of mood and anxiety disorders during adolescence.
Emotion dysregulation in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Three models are considered to explain the overlap between emotion dys regulation and ADHD: emotion dysregulation and ADHD are correlated but distinct dimensions; the combination constitutes a nosological entity distinct from both ADHD and emotion Dysregulation alone.
Defining clinical phenotypes of juvenile mania.
TLDR
The presence of distinct episodes and hallmark symptoms can be used to differentiate clinical phenotypes of juvenile mania and the utility and validity of this system can be tested in subsequent research.
Abnormal ventromedial prefrontal cortex function in children with psychopathic traits during reversal learning.
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence of abnormal ventromedial prefrontal cortex responsiveness in children with psychopathic traits and demonstrates this dysfunction was not attributable to comorbid attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

TLDR
Longitudinal data indicate that nonepisodic irritability in youths is common and is associated with an elevated risk for anxiety and unipolar depressive disorders, but not bipolar disorder, in adulthood, and data suggest that youths with severe mood dysregulation have lower familial rates of bipolar disorder than do those with bipolar disorder.
Ventrolateral prefrontal cortex activation and attentional bias in response to angry faces in adolescents with generalized anxiety disorder.
TLDR
Adolescents with generalized anxiety disorder show greater right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex activation and attentional bias away from angry faces than healthy adolescents, suggesting that this activation may serve as a compensatory response.
