Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a short series of articles, we will review the evidence for genotype by environment interaction (G × E) in developmental psychopathology. We will focus specifically on the characteristics of types of exposure assessed with respect to both their methods and findings. This article aims to review the studies exploring the effects of child maltreatment on children, adolescents and young adults closer in time to maltreatment experience, in a G × E perspective.
