Are you helping your toddler's aggressive behavior? (12/17/2014)

Physical aggression in toddlers has been thought to be associated with the frustration caused by language problems, but a recent study by researchers at the University of Montreal shows that this isn't the case. The researchers did find, however, that parental behaviors may influence the development of an association between the two problems during early childhood. ...> Full Article


Size matters: Baby's size at birth may predict risk for disease later in life (11/9/2014)

A new research report published in the November 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal suggests that being overweight might be better in the long term than being underweight. ...> Full Article


Preterm children's brains can catch up years later (7/31/2014)

There's some good news for parents of preterm babies -- latest research from the University of Adelaide shows that by the time they become teenagers, the brains of many preterm children can perform almost as well as those born at term. ...> Full Article



Three parents and a baby (6/21/2014)

Three parents and a babyA new treatment method by which three parents will beget a child will possibly become a reality in Great Britain. The method is supposed to eliminate defective mitochondria already in the test tube. Therefore, the nucleus of one egg cell has to be transferred to another egg cell bearing intact mitochondria. Scientists at the Vetmeduni Vienna show for the first time that a few defective mitochondria dragged along in the transfer could cause diseases. ...> Full Article


Nature and nurture: Baby's development is affected by genes and conditions in the womb (4/30/2014)

A recent study led by A*STAR's Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences found that genetics as well as the environment in the womb play important roles in the development of the baby. The effort by the international team of scientists and clinicians is the world's first attempt to discover how genetic and environmental factors affect the human epigenome . The results have fundamental implications for how epigenetic studies will be conducted in the future. ...> Full Article


Should whole-genome sequencing become part of newborn screening? (4/4/2014)

Should whole-genome sequencing be used in the public-health programs that screen newborns for rare conditions? That question is likely to stir debate in coming years in many of the more-than-60 countries that provide newborn screening, as whole-genome sequencing becomes increasingly affordable and reliable. The possibility of making whole-genome sequencing part of routine screening programs for newborns raises ethical, legal and social issues that should be weighed carefully, according to researchers at McGill University. ...> Full Article



Cognitive development 'growth charts' may help diagnose and treat psychosis-risk kids (2/14/2014)

Cognitive development 'growth charts' may help diagnose and treat psychosis-risk kidsPenn Medicine researchers have developed a better way to assess and diagnose psychosis in young children. By "growth charting" cognitive development alongside the presentation of psychotic symptoms, they have demonstrated that the most significant lags in cognitive development correlate with the most severe cases of psychosis. Their findings are published online this month in JAMA Psychiatry. ...> Full Article


Shy toddlers understand more than their speaking ability indicates (2/7/2014)

Scientists have known that shy toddlers often have delayed speech, but a new study by the University of Colorado Boulder shows that the lag in using words does not mean that the children don't understand what's being said. ...> Full Article



A brain reward gene influences food choices in the first years of life (12/6/2013)

A brain reward gene influences food choices in the first years of lifeResearch has suggested that a particular gene in the brain's reward system contributes to overeating and obesity in adults. This same variant has now been linked to childhood obesity and tasty food choices, particularly for girls, according to a new study by Dr. Patricia Silveira and Prof. Michael Meaney of McGill University and Dr. Robert Levitan of the University of Toronto. ...> Full Article


Bad boys: Research predicts whether boys will grow out of it -- or not (11/16/2013)

Using the hi-tech tools of a new field called neurogenetics and a few simple questions for parents, a University of Michigan researcher is beginning to understand which boys are simply being boys and which may be headed for trouble. ...> Full Article


Miscarriage perceptions vs. reality: Public understanding not in sync with facts (10/28/2013)

The majority of Americans inaccurately believe miscarriage is rare and misunderstand its causes, creating an often isolating and guilt-ridden experience for those who experience it. These are the findings in the first-ever national survey to assess attitudes and perceptions towards miscarriage, which was conducted by researchers at Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. The study data was presented today at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in Boston. ...> Full Article


Why parenting can never have a rule book (9/9/2013)

Any parent will tell you that there is no simple recipe for raising a child. Being a parent means getting hefty doses of advice -- often unsolicited -- from others. But such advice often fails to consider a critical factor: The child. A new review of dozens of studies involving more than 14,600 pairs of twins shows that children's genetics significantly affect how they are parented. ...> Full Article


Parents don't fully understand biobank research, study finds (8/11/2013)

Researchers who collect genetic samples from children for medical research need to explain the process more clearly to parents, according to a new study that suggests many parents don't fully understand the finer details about how these samples will be used and stored. The study was published in June in Genetics in Medicine. ...> Full Article


Women at risk of developing postpartum psychosis need close monitoring, says new review (7/23/2013)

There are clear risk factors for postpartum psychosis that all women should be asked about antenatally to ensure early recognition and prompt treatment of the condition, says a new review published today (12 July) in The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist. ...> Full Article


Baby's genome deciphered prenatally from parents' lab tests (6/12/2012)

Baby's genome deciphered prenatally from parents' lab testsMaternal blood sampled at 18 weeks into a pregnancy and a paternal saliva specimen contained enough information for scientists to map the fetus' whole genome. Fetal DNA is in a pregnant women's bloodstream starting a few weeks after conception. Scientists assessed many and more subtle variations in the fetus' genome, down to a one-letter change in the DNA code, compared to current tests that screen for only a few major genetic errors. ...> Full Article


Exposure to micronutrients pre-pregnancy associated with gene modifications in offspring (2/27/2012)

The offspring of women who were given micronutrient supplements (minerals needed in small quantities, such as iron, iodine and vitamin A) before they became pregnant had gene modifications at birth as well as when they were tested at nine months. ...> Full Article


You can count on this: Math ability is inborn (8/10/2011)

Children's genes influence how well they take advantage of education (2/14/2011)

New research from the Twins Early Development Study at King's College London Institute of Psychiatry (IoP), shows that measures used to judge the effectiveness of schools are partly influenced by genetic factors in students. ...> Full Article


Beyond nature vs. nurture: Parental guidance boosts child's strengths, shapes development (12/3/2010)

Why does a young adult choose one career, hobby or path over another -- whether it's lawyer, politician, professional athlete, environmentalist or churchgoer? Some child psychologists say genes determine the outcome; others say the driving force is upbringing. But a new child-development theory bridges the nature vs. nurture models, saying parental guidance based on a child's strengths shapes how the child turns out, says psychologist George W. Holden at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. ...> Full Article
