One of the biggest challenges in psychiatric genetics has been to replicate findings across large studies.
These findings are not about the classic story of gift-giving, although the MAGI genes (officially named membrane associated guanylate kinase, WW and PDZ domain containing proteins) do influence brain function in important ways.
An international research consortium has confirmed that common genetic variants contribute to a person’s risk of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
The last two decades have seen tremendous progress in understanding the genetic basis of human brain disorders.
In a new study, a University of Missouri researcher and Dutch team of research collaborators found that genetic material on chromosome nine was linked to BPD features, a disorder characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image and behavior, and can lead to suicidal behavior, substance abuse and failed relationships.
Many public health officials, doctors and medical ethicists worry about the proliferation of these tests, which are without any significant government oversight, even though many of them are being sold as tools for making important medical decisions.
Genes, Brain and Behavior (G2B) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2002. It is published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the International Behavioral and Neural Genetics Society. It was published on a quarterly basis during its first year in publication. In 2003, the journal switched to bimonthly publications, and then in 2006 it switched to an 8-issue-per-year schedule. Content from G2B is available online from the Wiley Online Library or, from EBSCOhost after 12 months....
