Session 3: SYMPOSIUM: Behavioral and Environmental Contexts for Academic Achievement and Cognitive Development
June 29, 2013 10:35 to 12:05
Amphi Sciences Naturelles
 
This symposium brings together presentations from four different labs on three continents to examine behavioral and environmental factors that provide context for understanding academic achievement and cognitive development. The symposium will begin with data from the Florida Twin Project on Reading, Behavior, and Environment examining behavior problems and a risk index of home environment as they relate to reading achievement in elementary and middle school (Taylor et al.). Next, macroenvironmental context is examined by investigators using data from different countries showing the effects of standardization within country on reading in first grade (Byrne et al.). In the first of two developmental studies included in the symposium, researchers using data from the TEDS project will show how differences among MZ twins in reading achievement affect development of cognitive abilities from childhood to adolescence (Ritchie et al.). Finally, initial data are presented from a new study of “tiny” twins examining family contexts for cognitive development in infants and toddlers (Tucker-Drob et al.).

Session 9: SYMPOSIUM: Genetically-Informed Studies of Marriage, Family, and Well-Being
June 30, 2013 9:00 to 10:15
Amphi Sciences Naturelles
 
While it is clear that marital quality is associated with well-being, the extent to which genetic and environmental effects explain this association is less clear. Although widely acknowledged by many (Kiecolt-Glaser & Newton, 2001), this limitation only recently has begun to receive methodological attention in twin studies (Spotts et al., 2005; Horn et al., 2013). Twin designs help infer causation in nonexperimental studies because they explicitly account for any gene-environment correlations between marriage and well-being (Horwitz et al., 2011). Additionally, they have the unique advantage of showing how genes and environments underlying well-being are moderated by marital contexts (South & Krueger, 2008). Thus, by taking advantage of twin studies, theories regarding the health benefits of marriage can be more rigorously tested.

Session 21: SYMPOSIUM: Genes and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs): Where Are We?
July 1, 2013 10:50 to 12:20
Amphi Sciences Naturelles
 
Several lines of evidence indicate that ASD are brain disorders and that genetic factors contribute to most of the ASD cases. There is moreover a consensus about the etiological heterogeneity of ASD and the lack of success of GWS strategy with autism is probably the consequence of a large number of mutations each associated with few autistic patients. The results from high-throughput sequencing (HTS) techniques and from ultra-high-throughput sequencing (UHTS) suggest an alternative approach of the etiological heterogeneity of ASD. HTS and UHTS have recently associated more than 40 mutations, chromosomal micro deletions and duplications or various genetic events with ASD. Besides prevalence of ASDs is highest in several syndromes than in the general population. These observations lead to several questions. 1) The revised version of the 5th version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) revisits the diagnostic criteria and amends the list of pervasive development disorders. Does it change the prevalence of ASD? Does it change the prevalence of syndromic autism? 2) What are the frequencies of syndromic autism and of non-syndromic autism associated now with genes? 3) ASDs have different etiology and a large clinical variability. What makes the unity of the diagnosis in patients who do not share the same genetic events? Are there common mechanisms in fragile X and Smith-Lemli-Opitz in which a high prevalence of ASD has been reported? The five speakers in the symposium all share a common feature: they work on autism and publish in human and in animal genetics.

Session 26: SYMPOSIUM: Using a Parent-Offspring Adoption Design to Advance the Understanding of Genetic and Environmental Influences on Child Development
July 1, 2013 14:50 to 16:20
Amphi Sciences Naturelles
 
This symposium will present three areas of study from the ongoing Early Growth and Development Study (EGDS). The EGDS is a longitudinal study of 551 birth parents and adoptive families, linked through a child adopted at birth. We will describe three inter-related areas of study on EGDS: (1) separating the role of genetic, prenatal drug exposure, and rearing environment influences on child development; (2) examining gene-environment interplay during the school-entry period of development; and (3) disentangling prenatal, genetic, and rearing environmental influences on child healthy and unhealthy weight development across childhood. The three talks will cover each of these areas, focusing on the unique contributions facilitated by the adoption design. The discussant, Matt McGue, will provide a general discussion of the work on the EGDS to date and will link this work to the larger body of adoption studies and quantitative genetic research on child development.
