Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY 10065, USA
Biol Psychiatry 72:499-504. 2012..Although BDNF expression can be directly influenced by estrogen and progesterone, the potential impact of the BDNF Val66Met SNP on sensitivity to reproductive hormone changes remains an open question...

Department of Psychology, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Carbondale, IL 62903, USA
Dev Sci 15:739-52. 2012..These findings provide additional support for our hypothesis that the development of perceptual completion in early infancy is promoted by progressive improvements in visual selective attention and oculomotor skill...

The Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY 10065, USA
Science 327:863-6. 2010..Thus, this variant BDNF allele may play a role in anxiety disorders showing impaired learning of cues that signal safety versus threat and in the efficacy of treatments that rely on extinction mechanisms, such as exposure therapy...

Dev Psychol 38:352-62. 2002..Young children apparently need several seconds to compute the answer on this task. Often they do not take the needed time; when forced to do so, they do well...
