Article
Full-text available
Recently, there has been an increase in telemedicine applied to child neuropsychiatry, such as the use of online platforms to collect remotely case histories and demographic and behavioral information. In the present proof-of-concept study, we aimed to understand to what extent information parents and teachers provide through online questionnaires...

Full-text available
The brain intrinsic organization into large-scale functional networks, the resting state networks (RSN), shows a complex inter-individual variability, consolidated during development. Nevertheless, the role of genetic and environmental factors on developmental brain functional connectivity (FC) remains largely unknown. Twin design represents an opt...
Preprint
Recently there has been an increase in telemedicine applied to child neuropsychiatry, such as the use of online platforms to remotely collect anamnestic and behavioral information. In the present proof-of-concept study, we aimed to understand to what extent information provided by parents and teachers through online questionnaires overlaps with cli...
Article
Full-text available
Background/Objective Emotional dysregulation (ED) is a dimensional psychological domain, previously operationalized by instruments of the Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA) for children and adolescents; however, its cross-cultural and bottom-up characteristics among adult populations are still unknown. Method We examined scor...
Chapter
Children and young people with neurodevelopmental disorders seem to be more susceptible to developing obesity and eating disorders. To prevent this, therapeutic programs including nutritional education are, therefore, needed. Serious games (SGs) represent a promising solution to improve adherence to the treatment in different populations, including...
Article
Full-text available
Individual responses to methylphenidate (MPH) can significantly differ in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in terms of the extent of clinical amelioration, optimal dosage needed, possible side effects, and short- and long-term duration of the benefits. In the present repeated-measures observational study, we undertook a...
Article
Full-text available
This study aims to investigate the genetic and neural determinants of attention and hyperactivity problems. Using a proof-of-concept imaging genetics mediation design, we explore the relationship between the glutamatergic GRIN2B gene variants and inattention/hyperactivity with neuroanatomical measures as intermediates. Fifty-eight children and adol...
Article
Lay abstract: Motor peculiarities are often reported in children with autism spectrum disorder and may predict subsequent adaptive functioning and quality of life. Although the sex bias in the prevalence of the disorder is well documented, little is known about differences in motor profile in males and females with autism spectrum disorder. Our go...
Chapter
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a ‘lifespan’ neurodevelopmental disorder, which typically manifest early in development, characterized by impaired levels of inattention, disorganization, and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity. These features are pervasive across multiple settings and cause substantial functional impairment of personal,...
Article
Background Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) exhibit behavioral inhibition deficits, which often lead to emotional dysregulation (ED) affecting individual ability to control emotions and behavioral responses. In ADHD, ED is associated with poor outcomes and comorbidities, with both externalizing and internalizing disorde...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Increasing evidence suggests a complex role of family influences, such as the exposure to parent psychopathology through parenting behavior, in parent-to-child psychopathology transmission. Parenting behaviour could represent a relevant target of psychoeducative intervention. Given these premises, we aimed to evaluate homotypic and het...
Article
Background Deficits in emotional processing and, in particular, in emotional self-regulation represent non-specific risk factors for transdiagnostic poor outcomes. Researches have been focusing on the investigation of possible emotional processing and regulation biomarkers. The present brief review of the literature aims to evaluate whether NIRS si...
Article
Full-text available
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder in children and adolescents, with environmental and biological causal influences. Pharmacological medication is the first choice in ADHD treatment; recently, many studies have concentrated on dietary supplementation approaches to address nutritional deficiencies...
Article
This single-arm, open-label study aimed to investigate the efficacy of a cognitive-behavioural group training based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) on cognition in drug-naïve children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Thirty-six children with ADHD aged 8-13 were invited to participate in the 9-month ACT training progr...
Chapter
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a non-invasive neuroimaging technique, largely used in paediatric research. However, there is not a standardized and widely accepted protocol for fNIRS data processing with potential effects on the reliability and replicability of the obtained results. The present study is within this framework aimin...
Article
Full-text available
Despite various advances in the study of the neurobiological underpinnings of personality traits, the specific neural correlates associated with character and temperament traits are not yet fully understood. Therefore, this study aims to fill this gap by exploring the biochemical basis of personality, which is explored with the temperament and char...
Article
Full-text available
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) biostatus has been proposed as possible attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) diagnosis biomarker. The present exploratory study aimed to investigate the association between PUFAs biostatus and cerebral cortex metabolism measured by functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) in a sample of children w...
Article
Background: Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in self-controlling attention, behavior, and emotions. In recent years, noninvasive optical techniques, such as near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), have been used to measure the neural correlates of pharmacological-therapy outcomes...
Article
Background: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by deficits in cognitive and emotional self-control. Optical technique acquisitions, such as near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), seem to be very promising during developmental ages, as they are non- invasive techniques and less influenced by b...
Article
Full-text available
The current gold standard for diagnosis of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) includes subjective measures, such as clinical interview, observation, and rating scales. The significant heterogeneity of ADHD symptoms represents a challenge for this assessment and could prevent an accurate diagnosis. The aim of this work was to investigat...
Article
Full-text available
Over the last 15 years, considerable interest has been given to the potential role of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) for understanding pathogenesis and treatment of neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders. This review aims to systematically investigate the scientific evidence supporting the hypothesis on the omega-3 PUFAs deficit...
Article
Objective: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) status, cognitive, and behavioral traits of ADHD in school-aged children. Method: Seventy-three children with and without ADHD were assessed with cognitive tasks and behavioral rating scales including quality of life and global functioning at...

The main aim of this project is to identify specific developmental trajectories of psychopathological traits, from childhood towards early adulthood. Subsequently we will focus on the role of risk and resilience factors, and on their complex interaction, in shaping developmental trajectories.
