Prior juvenile diagnoses in adults with mental disorder: developmental follow-back of a prospective-longitudinal cohort.
TLDR
Most adult disorders should be reframed as extensions of juvenile disorders, in particular, juvenile conduct disorder is a priority prevention target for reducing psychiatric disorder in the adult population. Expand
MAOA, maltreatment, and gene–environment interaction predicting children's mental health: new evidence and a meta-analysis
TLDR
These findings provide the strongest evidence to date suggesting that the MAOA gene influences vulnerability to environmental stress, and that this biological process can be initiated early in life. Expand
Continuities and discontinuities in psychopathology between childhood and adult life.
TLDR
The key research challenges that remain concern the testing of competing hypotheses on mediating processes, the changes involved in adolescence, the transition from prodromal phase to overt schizophrenia and the emergence of adolescent-limited antisocial behaviour. Expand
Research review: DSM-V conduct disorder: research needs for an evidence base.
TLDR
It is reported that although there is a great deal of exciting research into each of the topics, very little of it provides the precise sort of evidence base required to justify any alteration to the DSM-V conduct disorder diagnosis. Expand
Moderation of breastfeeding effects on the IQ by genetic variation in fatty acid metabolism
TLDR
The finding that breastfeeding and IQ are moderated by a genetic variant in FADS2, a gene involved in the genetic control of fatty acid pathways shows that environmental exposures can be used to uncover novel candidate genes in complex phenotypes and shows that genes may work via the environment to shape the IQ. Expand
Maternal expressed emotion predicts children's antisocial behavior problems: using monozygotic-twin differences to identify environmental effects on behavioral development.
TLDR
The results suggest that maternal emotional attitudes toward children may play a causal role in the development of antisocial behavior and illustrate how genetically informative research can inform tests of socialization hypotheses. Expand
Maternal depression and children's antisocial behavior: nature and nurture effects.
TLDR
Interventions for depressed mothers aiming to reduce conduct problems in their children should address parents' antisocial personality, as well as mothers' depression. Expand
Validity of DSM-IV conduct disorder in 41/2-5-year-old children: a longitudinal epidemiological study.
TLDR
Testing the concurrent, convergent, and predictive validity of DSM-IV conduct disorder in children 4(1/2)-5 years of age found behavioral problems of preschool-age children meeting diagnostic criteria for conduct disorder should be ignored. Expand
Meta-analysis of gene–environment interactions in developmental psychopathology
TLDR
One simple approach to the meta-analysis of G × E effects is described using, as a contemporaneous example, the interaction of the monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) gene and the impact of childhood maltreatment on risk for developing antisocial behavior. Expand
