Hormone differences by psychopathology group and gender may have implications for understanding disruptive behavior disorders (DBDs) and complexities of treatment outcomes. Current theoretical models emphasize contextual differences as moderators of hormone-behavior relations. This baseline report examined: (a) hormone differences in youth with and without DBD, and (b) contextual factors as moderators of behavior problems and hormones. 180 children and adolescents were enrolled (141 boys, mean… Expand
Sex-specific associations of basal steroid hormones and neuropeptides with Conduct Disorder and neuroendocrine mediation of environmental risk
TLDR
Examination of multiple basal neuroendocrine biomarkers in female and male adolescents with CD compared to healthy controls, and whether they mediate effects of environmental risk factors on CD, provides evidence for sex-specific associations between basal neuro endocrine measures and CD. Expand
Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis Function in Children and Adults with Severe Antisocial Behavior and the Impact of Early Adversity
TLDR
Whether cortisol abnormalities predict prognosis or treatment outcomes and the impact of exposure to adversity on hypothalamic-pituitary-adrena (HPA) axis activity is considered and key concepts and methodological issues in cortisol assessment are considered. Expand
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, free testosterone, and sex hormone-binding globulin on susceptibility to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
It is proposed that DHEA-S serves as a potential biomarker of ADHD and is consistently involved in the pathogenesis of ADHD in both boys and girls. Expand
Effect of the Nature of Subsequent Environment on Oxytocin and Cortisol Secretion in Maltreated Children
TLDR
The results suggest that CT diurnal secretions tend to be reactive to current stress rather than previous experience, which is presumably hyper-regulated for coping with the environment to survive and thrive. Expand
Relationships between adrenarcheal hormones, hippocampal volumes and depressive symptoms in children
TLDR
The results suggest that adrenarcheal timing may be related to hippocampal development and depressive symptoms, extending current knowledge of pubertal risk processes. Expand
Predicting Treatment Response for Oppositional Defiant and Conduct Disorder Using Pre-Treatment Adrenal and Gonadal Hormones
TLDR
Higher concentrations of testosterone are related to how well children diagnosed with ODD or CD respond to psychological treatment over the course of 3 years, according to group-based trajectory modeling. Expand
Endocrine markers of puberty timing and antisocial behaviour in girls and boys.
TLDR
The findings from this review suggest that longitudinal studies to test bidirectional hormone-behaviour associations with early or late puberty would be worthwhile and integrated consideration of the hormonal end products is recommended. Expand
Cortisol and DHEA in development and psychopathology
TLDR
This review addresses the state of the science in understanding the role of DHEA, cortisol, and their ratio in typical development and developmental psychopathology and identifies several major knowledge gaps. Expand
Developmental and contextual considerations for adrenal and gonadal hormone functioning during adolescence: Implications for adolescent mental health.
TLDR
A dual-axis approach that examines both axes simultaneously to predict the emergence and persistence of adolescent mental health problems is proposed and future directions including consideration of between-person and within-person approaches to address questions of correlated changes in HPA and HPG hormones are proposed. Expand
A longitudinal biosocial study of cortisol and peer influence on the development of adolescent antisocial behavior
TLDR
The findings suggest that interrelations between biological and social risk factors are different for the development of aggression versus rule-breaking, and decreased levels of HPA axis activity may represent a susceptibility to selecting deviant peers. Expand

Adrenal androgen and gonadal hormone levels in adolescent girls with conduct disorder
TLDR
The data suggest that girls with CD, particularly aggressive CD, have lower cortisol to DHEA ratios, higher levels of free testosterone, and lower levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Expand
Salivary testosterone diurnal variation and psychopathology in adolescent males and females: Individual differences and developmental effects
TLDR
High levels of testosterone and testosterone levels that decreased more slowly across the day were related to higher levels of anxiety–depression and attention problems, and these associations were not moderated by pubertal development. Expand
Decreased cortisol levels in adolescent girls with conduct disorder.
TLDR
Morning plasma cortisol levels were significantly diminished in adolescent girls with CD, and appear to be most strongly associated with antisocial girls who do not have other psychiatric disorders. Expand
Sex Differences in Cortisol Level and Neurobehavioral Disinhibition in Children of Substance Abusers
SUMMARY This investigation determined the extent to which cortisol level, an index of HPA axis activity, covaries with neurobehavioral disinhibition. The sample consisted of 369 boys and 91 girls whoExpand
Stress responsivity in children with externalizing behavior disorders
TLDR
It was concluded that differences in cortisol responsivity during stress exposure are important in distinguishing within a group of children with externalizing behavior between those with ODD and ADHD. Expand
Mood and Hormone Responses to Psychological Challenge in Adolescent Males with Conduct Problems
TLDR
Positive affect increased following the worst-event challenge and decreased following the avoidance challenge, and CP were inversely related to post-challenge urinary epinephrine levels when baseline E and potential confounds were controlled. Expand
Negative affect and hormone levels in young adolescents: Concurrent and predictive perspectives
TLDR
The findings suggest that puberty-related hormone levels should be considered along with psychological characteristics in examining the processes involved in the development of negative affect during the pubertal years. Expand
Adrenocortical activity in at-risk and normally developing adolescents: Individual differences in salivary cortisol basal levels, diurnal variation, and responses to social challenges
TLDR
Results suggest that gender is an important moderating factor linking psychopathology, development, and context with HPA axis functioning in adolescence and that internalizing problems sometimes were associated with gradual rather than steep declines in basal cortisol production. Expand
Increased adrenal androgen functioning in children with oppositional defiant disorder: a comparison with psychiatric and normal controls.
TLDR
The results indicate that adrenal androgen functioning is specifically elevated in children with ODD and it is speculated that the mechanism could be a shift in balance of ACTH-beta-endorphin functioning in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis due to early stress or genetic factors. Expand
Salivary cortisol and cardiovascular activity during stress in oppositional-defiant disorder boys and normal controls
TLDR
The results of the study support an important role for hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis sympathetic autonomic functioning in persistent antisocial behavior in young boys. Expand
