    ..Adolescents carrying an A allele were more susceptible to negative environments during weekend days than GG carriers. Our findings emphasize the importance of operationalizing the phenotype and the environment accurately. ..

    Eeske van Roekel
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, P O Box 9104, 6500 HE, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Autism Dev Disord 40:63-73. 2010
    ..The more often adolescents bullied, according to teachers and peers, and the less developed their ToM, the more they misinterpreted bullying situations as non-bullying. Implications for clinical practice are discussed...

    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Youth Adolesc 40:453-62. 2011
    ..Furthermore, no associations were found between 5-HTTLPR genotype and adolescent depressive feelings, and no gene-environment interactions emerged. Limitations of the study and implications of the findings are discussed...

    Eeske van Roekel
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Child Psychol Psychiatry 52:1044-51. 2011
    ..Earlier research focused on genes within the serotonin and oxytocin systems, but no studies have examined the role of dopamine-related genes in loneliness. In the present study, we focused on the dopamine D2 receptor gene (DRD2)...

    Psychiatr Genet 23:204-13. 2013
    ..The evidence, though, was limited mostly to serotonin-related and dopamine-related genes. In the present study, we focused on the oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR)...

    Eeske van Roekel
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    J Child Psychol Psychiatry 51:747-54. 2010
    ..Behavioral genetic studies with twin designs have found a significant genetic component for loneliness in children and adults, but no molecular genetic studies have been conducted to reveal the functional polymorphisms involved...

    Maaike Verhagen
    Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 9:e92768. 2014
    ..Our results underline the importance of sex-stratified analyses when examining effects of the BDNF genotype and the necessity of conducting gene studies to intermediate phenotypes of loneliness. ..
