BACKGROUND The children of parents who abuse alcohol typically show reduced amplitude of the P3 event-related potential wave. We determined if this effect was present in a population-based sample of older adolescent boys, whether it was associated with paternal antisocial personality and drug use, and whether it appeared in youth with childhood externalizing and substance use disorders. METHODS A statewide sample of 502 male youth, identified from Minnesota birth records as members of twin…

Association between P3 event-related brain potential amplitude and adolescent problem behavior.

TLDR
Examination of P3 event-related brain potential amplitude and the age of onset of adolescent problem behaviors associated with the development of externalizing psychopathology suggests that reduced P3 may also be associated with early expression of behaviors that predict theDevelopment of these disorders.

P300 amplitude as an indicator of externalizing in adolescent males.

TLDR
A robust association was found between reduced P300 amplitude and the externalizing factor, and this relation accounted for links between specific externalizing disorders and P300.

Multifactorial Determinants of Target and Novelty-Evoked P300 Amplitudes in Children of Addicted Parents

TLDR
The present findings suggest that the P300 amplitude reduction to novel stimuli might be a more specific endophenotype for SUD than the target-P300 amplitude, which is a persistent finding in children of addicted parents.

Association of P3 amplitude to treatment completion in substance dependent individuals

A General Population Twin Study of Conduct Problems and the Auditory P300 Waveform

TLDR
An association between reduced P300 amplitude and conduct problems can be substantiated already in childhood, at an age that precedes the most typical onset of conduct disorder, and appears to be genetic in nature.

Behavioral disinhibition and the development of substance-use disorders: Findings from the Minnesota Twin Family Study

TLDR
It is hypothesized that genetic liability for this variant of substance-use disorder is reflected in a spectrum of risk indicators linked to the inability or unwillingness to inhibit behavioral impulses, including conduct, oppositional defiant, and attention-deficit disorder in children and antisocial personality disorder and behavior in adults.

Substance dependence and externalizing psychopathology in adolescent boys with small, average, or large P300 event-related potential amplitude.

TLDR
It is suggested that P300 amplitude may index a spectrum of risk for disinhibited psychopathology as well as substance use and related disorders.

Origins and consequences of age at first drink. I. Associations with substance-use disorders, disinhibitory behavior and psychopathology, and P3 amplitude.

TLDR
Findings suggest that individuals who first drink at a relatively early age manifest elevated rates of disinhibitory behavior and psychopathology before they first try alcohol, and suggest that the association of AFD with alcoholism reflects, at least in part, a common underlying vulnerability to disinhibited behavior.
