    • DNA variation in the SNAP25 gene confers risk to ADHD and is associated with reduced expression in prefrontal cortex 

      Hawi, Ziarih; Matthews, Natasha; Wagner, Joseph; Wallace, Robyn H.; Butler, Tim J.; Vance, Alasdair; Kent, Lindsey; Gill, Michael; Bellgrove, Mark A. (2013-04-12) - Journal article
      Background: The Coloboma mouse carries a similar to 2 cM deletion encompassing the SNAP25 gene and has a hyperactive phenotype similar to that of ADHD. Such mice are 3 fold more active compared to their control littermates. ...
    • Identification of candidate genes for dyslexia susceptibility on chromosome 18 

      Scerri, Thomas S.; Paracchini, Silvia; Morris, Andrew; MacPhie, I. Laurence; Talcott, Joel; Stein, John; Smith, Shelley D.; Pennington, Bruce F.; Olson, Richard K.; DeFries, John C.; Monaco, Anthony P. (2010-10-28) - Journal article
      Background: Six independent studies have identified linkage to chromosome 18 for developmental dyslexia or general reading ability. Until now, no candidate genes have been identified to explain this linkage. Here, we set ...
    • PCSK6 is associated with handedness in individuals with dyslexia 

      Scerri, Thomas S.; Brandler, William M.; Paracchini, Silvia; Morris, Andrew P.; Ring, Susan M.; Richardson, Alex J.; Talcott, Joel B.; Stein, John; Monaco, Anthony P. (2011-02) - Journal article
      Approximately 90% of humans are right-handed. Handedness is a heritable trait, yet the genetic basis is not well understood. Here we report a genome-wide association study for a quantitative measure of relative hand skill ...
