Abstract / Description of output

In their annual research review, McAdams, Cheesman, and Ahmadzadeh (2023) provide a thorough overview of how the use of novel genetically informative approaches can increase our knowledge about the intergenerational transmission of psychopathology. Many JCPP readers will already be familiar with genetically sensitive family-based designs, such as twin and adoption studies, as well as with newer molecular-genetic approaches, such as polygenic-score studies. McAdams et al.'s (2023) review discusses the innovative combination of family-based and molecular-genetic methods, and what this combination can reveal about developmental psychopathology.
