Brief description Child CPs are the first identifable sign of ongoing mental health problems. Most research is done with males, but they are also the most common early markers in females. We are in the unique position to conduct the first test of the relationships between specific genetic risk, neurobiological markers and psychological functioning in females. Findings will inform models of genertic vulnerability, the relationship of genetic risk to basic information processing styles in at-risk children.
