Intergenerational Neuroimaging of Literacy and Dyslexia-Related Brain Networks

Friday, September 16, 2022 · 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT
Online Event

Presented by Fumiko Hoeft, MD, PhD, University of Connecticut

Parents have large influence on offspring’s brain and cognitive development. The Intergenerational Multiple Deficit Model affords integration of parental influences, whether genetic (G) or environmental (E), to explain individual differences in cognitive function or disorders. Further, it has recently been suggested that most complex traits show intergenerational sex-specific transmission patterns, which could help uncover biological pathways of transmission. Macro-circuits using imaging may be an ideal target for investigations of intergenerational effects, where key causes may converge in ways that lead to complex phenotypes. I will present this line of research in our lab and findings from our NIH-funded projects to illustrate this approach, and how we study relationships and dissociation between G and E effects using reading and dyslexia as examples.

Learning Objectives

  • Critically review and analyze literature that examines intergenerational transmission.
  • Critically review and analyze neuroimaging literature in dyslexia.
  • Differentiate the types of parental influence in children

About the Visiting Professor Lecture Series

The Child Mind Institute Visiting Professor Lecture Series invites leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health to talk about the latest research and treatment protocols. All events are open to the public. This year, all lectures will be hosted virtually over GoToWebinar. In partnership with Northwell Health, continuing medical education (CME) credits for psychiatrists and continuing education (CE) credits for psychologists are available to registered course participants.
