Thinking clearly about the endophenotype–intermediate phenotype–biomarker distinctions in developmental psychopathology research
TLDR
This analysis favors use of the endophenotype concept in genetically informed laboratory and neuroscience studies of psychopathology and examines the concepts critically and contrasted in terms of meaning, intention, clarity, and intellectual history.
Neurobiological candidate endophenotypes of social anxiety disorder
Endophenotypes in Schizophrenia for the Perinatal Period: Criteria for Validation.
TLDR
Changes to the endophenotype validity criteria appropriate to perinatal research are proposed and how application of these modified criteria helped identify a perinatally-usable phenotype of risk for schizophrenia, P50 sensory gating, which was then used to propose a novel per inatal primary prevention intervention.

Biomarkers for personalised treatment in psychiatric diseases
TLDR
It is argued that methods that are suitable to identify biologically more homogeneous subgroups within a given psychiatric disorder are necessary to advance biomarker research.

TLDR

Psychiatric endophenotypes and the development of valid animal models
TLDR
There exists a need for increased collaboration between clinicians and basic scientists, the result of which should be to improve diagnosis, classification and treatment on one end and to increase the construct relevance of model organisms on the other.
Toward Constructing an Endophenotype Strategy for Bipolar Disorders
Discovering Endophenotypes for Major Depression
TLDR
The case is made for the development of a new classification system in order to reduce the heterogeneity of depression representing a major impediment to elucidating the genetic and neurobiological basis of this common, severe, and often life-threatening illness.
Developing constructs for psychopathology research: research domain criteria.
TLDR
The Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework is a heuristic to facilitate the incorporation of behavioral neuroscience in the study of psychopathology, and aims to identify reliable and valid psychological and biological mechanisms and their disruptions, with an eventual goal of understanding how anomalies in these mechanisms drive psychiatric symptoms.
Endophenotypes: Bridging Genomic Complexity and Disorder Heterogeneity
Resolving the latent structure of schizophrenia endophenotypes using expectation-maximization-based finite mixture modeling.
TLDR
Finite mixture modeling was used as a technique for discerning latent structure and the laboratory-measured endophenotypes of sustained attention deficits and eye-tracking dysfunction as endophenotype indexes supported the existence of 2 relatively distinct latent classes.
Endophenotypes in the genetic analyses of mental disorders.
TLDR
An evolutionary theoretical framework is developed for common mental disorders and differentiate them from simpler, single-gene disorders, and a definition and description of endophenotypes are provided, elucidating several features that will make a proposed endophenotype useful in psychiatric genetic research and evaluating the methods for detecting and validating suchendophenotypes.
