    BACKGROUND: Attention function filters and selects behaviorally relevant information. This capacity is impaired in some psychiatric disorders and has been proposed as an endophenotype for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity ...
  • Neumann, Alexander; Alemany, Silvia; González, Juan Ramón; Julvez, Jordi; Maitre, Léa; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Guxens Junyent, Mònica; Tiemeier, Henning (Nature Research, 2020)
    Attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood disorder with a substantial genetic component. However, the extent to which epigenetic mechanisms play a role in the etiology of the disorder is ...
  • Alemany, Silvia; Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Milà Alomà, Marta; Suárez-Calvet, Marc; Salvadó, Gemma; Arenaza Urquijo, Eider M.; Sánchez Benavides, Gonzalo; Grau-Rivera, Oriol; Minguillón, Carolina; Fauria, Karine; Domingo Gispert, Juan; Gascon Merlos, Mireia, 1984-; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; ALFA Study (Elsevier, 2021)
    Background: Air quality contributes to incidence of Alzheimer's disease (AD) although the underlying neurobiological mechanisms are unclear. This study was aimed to examine the association between air pollution and ...
  • van Dongen, Jenny; Alemany, Silvia; González Ruiz, Juan Ramón; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Vrijheid, Martine; Boomsma, Dorret I. (Nature Research, 2021)
    DNA methylation profiles of aggressive behavior may capture lifetime cumulative effects of genetic, stochastic, and environmental influences associated with aggression. Here, we report the first large meta-analysis of ...
  • Mortamais, Marion; Pujol Martí, Jesús, 1981-; Martínez-Vilavella, Gerard; Fenoll, Raquel; Reynes, Christelle; Sabatier, Robert; Rivas, Ioar; Forns i Guzman, Joan, 1981-; Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Alemany, Silvia; Cirach, Marta; Alvarez, Mar; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Sunyer Deu, Jordi (Elsevier, 2019)
    Objective: Air pollution (AP) may affect neurodevelopment, but studies about the effects of AP on the growing human brain are still scarce. We aimed to investigate the effects of prenatal exposure to AP on lateral ventricles ...
  • Ip, Hill F.; Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Alemany, Silvia; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Boomsma, Dorret I. (Nature Research, 2021)
    Childhood aggressive behavior (AGG) has a substantial heritability of around 50%. Here we present a genome-wide association meta-analysis (GWAMA) of childhood AGG, in which all phenotype measures across childhood ages from ...
  • Jami, Eshim S.; Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Alemany, Silvia; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Middeldorp, Christel M. (Elsevier, 2022)
    Objective: To investigate the genetic architecture of internalizing symptoms in childhood and adolescence. Method: In 22 cohorts, multiple univariate genome-wide association studies (GWASs) were performed using repeated ...

    Multivariate methods have the potential to better capture complex relationships that may exist between different biological levels. Multiple Factor Analysis (MFA) is one of the most popular methods to obtain factor scores ...
  • Caramaschi, Doretta; Alemany, Silvia; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Sharp, Gemma C. (Nature Research, 2022)
    Cognitive skills are a strong predictor of a wide range of later life outcomes. Genetic and epigenetic associations across the genome explain some of the variation in general cognitive abilities in the general population ...

    Background: Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are child-onset neurodevelopmental disorders frequently accompanied by cognitive difficulties. In the current study, we aim ...
  • Alemany, Silvia; Avella García, Claudia B., 1982-; García Esteban, Raquel; Casas Sanahuja, Maribel; Júlvez Calvo, Jordi; Sunyer Deu, Jordi (Springer, 2021)
    The potential etiological role of early acetaminophen exposure on Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is inconclusive. We aimed to study this association in a collaborative ...
