Human cognitive ability is influenced by genetic variation in components of postsynaptic signalling complexes assembled by NMDA receptors and MAGUK proteins
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
Differences in general cognitive ability (intelligence) account for approximately half of the variation in any large battery of cognitive tests and are predictive of important life events including health. Genome-wide ...
Forskningsveiledning - en av de essensielle faktorene på «veien til doktorgrad»
The journey to finish a PhD thesis is a long race, and several factors may play important roles in this process. A good working relationship between the supervisor and the candidate is an essential component for achieving ...
Correlates of peer violence among 13-to-15-year-olds in Gampaha district schools in Sri Lanka: Findings from a comparison between violent and non-violent adolescents
Violence among adolescents in schools is a relatively new research area in South Asian countries. Limited knowledge about factors associated with peer violence hinders the design of prevention programs. This study was ...
Fractional anisotropy shows differential reduction in frontal-subcortical fiber bundles - A longitudinal MRI study of 76 middle-aged and older adults
Motivated by the frontal- and white matter (WM) retrogenesis hypotheses and the assumptions that fronto-striatal circuits are especially vulnerable in normal aging, the goal of the present study was to identify fiber bundles ...
Genetic contributions to variation in general cognitive function: a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies in the CHARGE consortium (N=53 949)
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
General cognitive function is substantially heritable across the human life course from adolescence to old age. We investigated the genetic contribution to variation in this important, health- and well-being-related trait ...
