Familial link found between conduct disorder and emotion recognition

January 23, 2015

Adolescents may have an increased chance of developing conduct disorder if emotion recognition impairments are present, according to a recent study published in Psychological Medicine. 

“This pattern of results supported our hypothesis that impaired emotion recognition would be observed in those who are at increased risk for developing [conduct disorder], as well as those who have actually developed this condition, suggesting that it is a familial risk marker or endophenotype for CD [conduct disorder],) Kate Sully, a postgraduate research student in the academic unit of psychology from the University of Southampton in the UK, and colleagues said.
