One of the best-replicated findings in clinical psychiatry is that the biological offspring of depressed parents (usually mothers are studied) themselves have considerable emotional and functional problems, usually depression and anxiety. These findings have been shown cross-sectionally in infants1 and in prepubescent, adolescent, and adult offspring.2...

Afifi et al1 corroborate results from a recent US study showing higher prevalence of childhood abuse among persons with a history of military service compared with persons who did not serve in the military.2 More importantly, Afifi and colleagues show how childhood abuse was differentially associated ...

The initial goal of genome-wide association studies (GWASs) of psychiatric disorders was to identify individual genetic variants that predispose to illness. Along the way, another application of GWAS data was discovered1: the polygenic risk score (PRS). The concept is simple. We start with all single-nucleotide polymorphisms ...
