  • Dissection of genetic associations with language-related traits in population-based cohorts 

    Paracchini, Silvia (2011) - Journal item
    Recent advances in the field of language-related disorders have led to the identification of candidate genes for specific language impairment (SLI) and dyslexia. Replication studies have been conducted in independent samples ...
  • Further evidence for a parent-of-origin effect at the NOP9 locus on language-related phenotypes 

    Pettigrew, Kerry Andrea; Frinton, Emily; Nudel, Ron; Chan, May T. M.; Thompson, Paul; Hayiou-Thomas, Marianna E.; Talcott, Joel B.; Stein, John; Monaco, Anthony P.; Hulme, Charles; Snowling, Margaret J.; Newbury, Diane F.; Paracchini, Silvia (2016-06-14) - Journal article
    Background: Specific Language Impairment (SLI) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder, observed in 5-10% of children. Family and twin studies suggest a strong genetic component, but relatively few candidate genes have ...
  • Genetic analysis of dyslexia candidate genes in the European cross-linguistic NeuroDys cohort 

    Becker, Jessica; Czamara, Darina; Scerri, Tom S; Ramus, Franck; Csépe, Valéria; Talcott, Joel B; Stein, John; Morris, Andrew; Ludwig, Kerstin U; Hoffmann, Per; Honbolygó, Ferenc; Tóth, Dénes; Fauchereau, Fabien; Bogliotti, Caroline; Iannuzzi, Stéphanie; Chaix, Yves; Valdois, Sylviane; Billard, Catherine; George, Florence; Soares-Boucaud, Isabelle; Gérard, Christophe-Loïc; van der Mark, Sanne; Schulz, Enrico; Vaessen, Anniek; Maurer, Urs; Lohvansuu, Kaisa; Lyytinen, Heikki; Zucchelli, Marco; Brandeis, Daniel; Blomert, Leo; Leppänen, Paavo Ht; Bruder, Jennifer; Monaco, Anthony P; Müller-Myhsok, Bertram; Kere, Juha; Landerl, Karin; Nöthen, Markus M; Schulte-Körne, Gerd; Paracchini, Silvia; Peyrard-Janvid, Myriam; Schumacher, Johannes (2013-09-11) - Journal article
    Dyslexia is one of the most common childhood disorders with a prevalence of around 5-10% in school-age children. Although an important genetic component is known to have a role in the aetiology of dyslexia, we are far from ...
  • The genetic relationship between handedness and neurodevelopmental disorders 

    Brandler, William M.; Paracchini, Silvia (2014-02) - Journal article
    Handedness and brain asymmetry have been linked to neurodevelopmental disorders such as dyslexia and schizophrenia. The genetic nature of this correlation is not understood. Recent discoveries have shown handedness is ...
  • Lack of replication for the myosin-18B association with mathematical ability in independent cohorts 

    Pettigrew, Kerry A; Fajutrao Valles, Samuelle F; Moll, Kristina; Northstone, Kate; Ring, Susan; Pennell, Craig; Wang, Carol; Leavett, Ruth; Hayiou-Thomas, Marianna E; Thompson, Paul; Simpson, Nuala H; Fisher, Simon E; Whitehouse, Andrew J O; Snowling, Margaret J; Newbury, Dianne F; Paracchini, Silvia; SLI Consortium (2015-04-23) - Journal article
    Twin studies indicate that dyscalculia (or mathematical disability) is caused partly by a genetic component, which is yet to be understood at the molecular level. Recently, a coding variant (rs133885) in the myosin-18B ...
  • Reading and language disorders : the importance of both quantity and quality 

    Newbury, Dianne F; Monaco, Anthony P; Paracchini, Silvia (2014-04-04) - Journal article
    Reading and language disorders are common childhood conditions that often co-occur with each other and with other neurodevelopmental impairments. There is strong evidence that disorders, such as dyslexia and Specific ...
