A study in Biological Psychiatry characterizes the neural profile of callousness in children Children with elevated levels of callous traits—such as a lack of remorse and disregard for other people’s feelings—show widespread differences in brain structure compared with children with lower levels of the traits, according to a new study published in Biological Psychiatry. The […]Continue Reading ...
In a study of identical twins, the child who experienced harsher behavior and less parental warmth was more aggressive and exhibited more callous-unemotional traits Less parental warmth and more harshness in the home environment can affect how aggressive children become and whether they lack empathy and a moral compass-a set of characteristics known as callous-unemotional […]Continue Reading ...
August 14, 2018 Scientists at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have developed a powerful method for characterizing the broad patterns of genetic contributions to traits and diseases. The new method provides a “big picture” of genetic influences that should be particularly helpful in designing future genetic studies and understanding potential for genetic risk […]Continue Reading ...
New research has discovered that people in the general population can be categorised into eight subgroups depending on their autistic or schizophrenic traits. Credit: Swinburne University of Technology New research at Swinburne has revealed a significant overlap in the traits associated with autism and schizophrenia. It has also discovered that people in the general population […]Continue Reading ...

There’s no single gene for eye colour. Credit: Shutterstock When humans’ genetic information (known as the genome) was mapped 15 years ago, it promised to change the world. Optimists anticipated an era in which all genetic diseases would be eradicated. Pessimists feared widespread genetic discrimination. Neither of these hopes and fears have been realised. The […]Continue Reading ...
