    • Common variants in the ARC gene are not associated with cognitive abilities 

      Myrum, Craig; Giddaluru, Sudheer; Jacobsen, Kaya Kvarme; Espeseth, Thomas; Nyberg, Lars; Lundervold, Astri; Haavik, Jan; Nilsson, Lars-Göran; Reinvang, Ivar; Steen, Vidar Martin; Johansson, Stefan; Wibrand, Karin; Le Hellard, Stephanie; Bramham, Clive R. (Wiley Periodicals, Inc, 2015-09-03)
      Introduction: The Activity-Regulated Cytoskeleton-associated (ARC) gene encodes a protein that is critical for the consolidation of synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation. Given ARC's key role in synaptic ...

    • Epistatic and gene wide effects in YWHA and aromatic amino hydroxylase genes across ADHD and other common neuropsychiatric disorders: Association with YWHAE 

      Jacobsen, Kaya Kvarme; Kleppe, Rune; Johansson, Stefan; Zayats, Tetyana; Haavik, Jan (Wiley, 2015-09)
      Monoamines critically modulate neurophysiological functions affected in several neuropsychiatric disorders. We therefore examined genes encoding key enzymes of catecholamine and serotonin biosynthesis (tyrosine and tryptophan ...

    • Expanding the toolbox of ADHD genetics. How can we make sense of parent of origin effects in ADHD and related behavioral phenotypes? 

      Zayats, Tetyana; Johansson, Stefan; Haavik, Jan (BioMed Central, 2015-10-16)
      Genome-wide association (GWA) studies have shown that many different genetic variants cumulatively contribute to the risk of psychiatric disorders. It has also been demonstrated that various parent-of-origin effects (POE) ...

    • Genome wide association study identifies variants in NBEA associated with migraine in bipolar disorder 

      Jacobsen, Kaya Kvarme; Nievergelt, Caroline M.; Zayats, Tetyana; Greenwood, Tifany A.; Anttila, Verneri; Akiskal, Hagop Souren; Haavik, Jan; Fasmer, Ole Bernt; Kelsoe, John R.; Johansson, Stefan; Ødegaard, Ketil Joachim (Elsevier B.V., 2015-10-12)
      Background. Migraine is a common comorbidity among individuals with bipolar disorder, but the underlying mechanisms for this co-occurrence are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic background ...

    • Genome-wide analysis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in Norway 

      Zayats, Tetyana; Athanasiu, Lavinia; Sønderby, Ida Elken; Djurovic, Srdjan; Westlye, Lars Tjelta; Tamnes, Christian Krog; Fladby, Tormod; Aase, Heidi; Zeiner, Pål; Reichborn-Kjennerud, Ted; Knappskog, Per; Knudsen, Gun Peggy; Andreassen, Ole Andreas; Johansson, Stefan; Haavik, Jan (PLOS, 2015-04-13)
      Background Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a highly heritable neuropsychiatric condition, but it has been difficult to identify genes underlying this disorder. This study aimed to explore genetics of ...
