Heritability of Cognitive Functions in Families of Successful Cognitive Aging Probands from the Central Valley of Costa Rica
(J Alzheimers Dis. 2011 ; 27(4): 897–907. doi:10.3233/JAD-2011-110782., 2011)
We sought to identify cognitive phenotypes for family/genetic studies of successful cognitive aging (SCA; maintaining intact cognitive functioning while living to late old age).We administered a battery of neuropsychological ...
Genetic structure of personality factors and bipolar disorder in families segregating bipolar disorder
(Journal of Affective Disorders xxx (2011) xxx–xxx, 2011)
Bipolar disorder (BPD) has been associated with variations in personality dimensions, but the nature of this relationship has been unclear. Inthis study, theheritabilities of BPDandtheBig Five personality factors and the ...
Neurocognitive endophenotypes for bipolar disorder identified in multiplex multigenerational families
(Arch Gen Psychiatry. 2010;67(2):168-177, 2010-02-01)
Context: Although genetic influences on bipolar disorder are well established, localization of genes that predispose to the illness has proven difficult. Given that genes predisposing to bipolar disorder may be transmitted ...
Shared Genetic Factors Influence Risk for Bipolar Disorder and Alcoholism
Bipolar disorder and alcoholism have high rate comorbidity, with more than 50% of alcoholism occurrence in bipolar disorder. While there is evidence that both disorders are heritable, it is unclear if the same genetic ...
A schizophrenia gene locus on chromosome 17q21 in a new set of families of mexican and central american ancestry: evidence from the NIMH genetics of schizophrenia in latino populations study
(Am J Psychiatry 2009;166:442-449, 2009-02-02)
The present study investigated a new set of families of Latin American ancestry in order to detect the location of genes predisposing to schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Method: A genome-wide scan was performed ...
Adjudicating Neurocognitive Endophenotypes for Schizophrenia
(American Journal of Medical Genetics Part B (Neuropsychiatric Genetics) 144B:242–249 (2007), 2007-03-05)
Although genetic influences on schizophrenia are well established, localization of the genes responsible for this illness has proven extremely difficult. Given evidence that genes predisposing to schizophrenia may be ...
