The aim of this study was to identify promising endophenotypes for intelligence in children and adolescents for future genetic studies in cognitive development. Based on the available set of endophenotypes for intelligence in adults, cognitive tasks were chosen covering the domains of working memory, processing speed, and selective attention. This set of(More)
In this paper we assess the presence of assortative mating, gene–environment interaction and the heritability of intelligence in childhood using a twin family design with twins, their siblings and parents from 112 families. We evaluate two competing hypotheses about the cause of assortative mating in intelligence: social homogamy and phenotypic assortment,(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t In a population-based sample of 112 nine-year old twin pairs, we investigated the association among total brain volume, gray matter and white matter volume, intelligence as assessed by the Raven IQ test, verbal comprehension, perceptual organization and perceptual speed as assessed by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for(More)
The multiple-look notion holds that the difference limen (DL) decreases with multiple observations. We investigated this notion for temporal discrimination in isochronous sound sequences. In Experiment 1, we established a multiple-look effect when sequences comprised nine standard time intervals (S) followed by an increasing number of comparison time(More)
SUMMARY: A finite difference based Stokes solver is developed to predict the mesoscopic permeability of textile reinforcements. In general, a high grid resolution is employed (either globally or locally) to capture the geometrical details of the reinforcement. Local grid refinements often result in poor aspect ratios of the elements, resulting in inaccurate(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o We explored the genetic background of individual differences in dynamic measures of verbal learning ability in children, using a Dutch version of the Auditory Verbal Learning Test (AVLT). Nine-year-old twin pairs (N = 112 pairs) were recruited from the Netherlands Twin Register. When possible, an older sibling between 10 and 14 years(More)
The transverse permeability is an essential input in describing the consolidation process of CETEX ® laminates. A two-dimensional, finite difference based, Stokes flow solver has been developed to determine the mesoscopic permeability of arbitrary fabric structures. The use of a multigrid solver dramatically decreases the cpu time required (less than one(More)

Presented to RI Family Court information on crime and substance use as found at the RITS and methods of effectively assessing and treating adolescents, 2005. Provided service to the RI Training School so that they could manage an intake screening device (Massachusetts Youth Screening Inventory-2) using their own resources, and more regularly include girls(More)

The inwardly rectifying K + channel KIR7.1 controls uterine excitability throughout pregnancy. Abstract Abnormal uterine activity in pregnancy causes a range of important clinical disorders, including preterm birth, dysfunctional labour and post-partum haemorrhage. Uterine contractile patterns are controlled by the generation of complex electrical signals(More)
