Add Health (National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health)Resource, data or information resource, databaseLongitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of adolescents in grades 7-12 in the United States during the 1994-95 school year. Public data on about 21,000 people first surveyed in 1994 are available on the first phases of the study, as well as study design specifications. It also includes some parent and biomarker data. The Add Health cohort has been followed into young adulthood with four in-home interviews, the most recent in 2008, when the sample was aged 24-32. Add Health combines longitudinal survey data on respondents social, economic, psychological and physical well-being with contextual data on the family, neighborhood, community, school, friendships, peer groups, and romantic relationships, providing unique opportunities to study how social environments and behaviors in adolescence are linked to health and achievement outcomes in young adulthood. The fourth wave of interviews expanded the collection of biological data in Add Health to understand the social, behavioral, and biological linkages in health trajectories as the Add Health cohort ages through adulthood. The restricted-use contract includes four hours of free consultation with appropriate staff; after that, there''s a fee for help. Researchers can also share information through a listserv devoted to the database.adolescent, longitudinal, adult human, interview, social, behavior, health, early adult humanSCR_007434(Add Health (National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health), RRID:SCR_007434)University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; North Carolina; USA AgingCDC, Department of Health and Human Services, MacArthur Foundation, NCI, NIA, NIAAA, NIAID, NICHD, NIDA, NIDCD, NIGMS, NIH, NIMH, NIMHD, NINR, NSF, Robert Wood Johnson FoundationLast checked upnif-0000-00621

Cerebellar Gene Regulation in Time and Space DatabaseResource, data set, data or information resource, databaseTime-series data sets spanning twelve time-points between E12-P9 for exploring cerebellar development of the mouse in time and space. The database contains a number of mutant / wildtype microarray datasets including two complete wildtype microarray time-series (C57BL/6 and DBA/2J). The dataset also includes in situ hybridization and bioinformatic analyses. Exploration of this dataset will allow the investigator to assess differential gene expression profiles from a developing mutant cerebella, to assess the temporal changes in gene expression in the wildtype, and to verify the cellular expression of these genes in images from our in situ hybridization library. Using the database, the investigator can explore the developmental expression or differential expression patterns of a particular gene, or create lists of similarly expression genes by building simple search algorithms. These lists can then be mined across all the datasets in both space and time.

NICHD Developmental Neuroethology - Laboratory of Comparative EthologyResource, laboratory portal, portal, organization portal, data or information resourceUnderstanding the mechanisms underlying the expression and perception of auditory communication in nonhuman primates provides important insights for understanding the neural systems that mediate nonverbal auditory communication in humans. Our research is devoted to understanding the changes in vocal behavior that are associated with maturation and social experience under normative conditions, and to investigating neural systems to define their roles in auditory communication. The anterior cingulate gyrus, in the frontal cerebral cortex, is an essential neural system for the expression of the primate isolation call, a structural and functional equivalent of the cry sounds of humans. Bilateral removal of this structure in adult squirrel monkeys resulted in a long-lasting inability to emit isolation calls. Partial recovery, often over many weeks, initially took the form of production of short, faint and uninflected versions of the typical isolation call. Humans suffering infarct damage to this region likewise show an initial recovery in the form of short, faint, monosyllabic sounds, suggesting that the anterior cingulate gyrus of nonhuman primates is the evolutionary precursor of a neural structure involved in human affective expression and speech. Our working model of isolation call production is that the anterior cingulate gyrus is the site where the command to produce this vocalization is initiated. Since the anterior cingulate region also has reciprocal connections with temporal lobe auditory cortex, a presumptive feedback pathway exists for registering commands to initiate vocalization with the temporal lobe cortex, which plays a major role in perceiving and decoding the acoustic details of species-specific vocalizations. At present, we do not know the role of the anterior cingulate gyrus in the production of infant vocalizations. However, we have found that neonatal removal of the amygdala, an important forebrain component of the limbic system, or portions of the inferotemporal gyrus, which sends projections to the amygdala, result in significant changes in the vocal behavior of infant rhesus macaques. Vocal development is a dynamic process, and a pattern shared by several nonhuman primates has emerged regarding the nature of this process. Infants are highly vocal during periods of brief separation from their caregiver, and we take advantage of this to document the range of vocalizations produced by infants of different ages. In the neonatal period, infants of 3 species of nonhuman primate (rhesus macaque, squirrel monkey and common marmoset) all produce sounds that vary widely in their acoustic structure. Many of these bear a striking similarity to sounds used in a variety of social settings by adults, suggesting that neural systems responsible for generating adult vocalizations are already in place during early infancy. As infants mature, their vocal behavior during brief periods of social separation becomes much more stereotyped. It isn't until much later in development, as individuals engage in a variety of social interactions with peers and adults, that the sounds expressed in early infancy begin to re-appear in adult contexts. The role of individual experience during development is currently being explored to determine the mechanisms leading to the acquisition of adult vocal skills.behavior, ethology, development, auditory communication, nonverbal auditory communication, vocal behavior, maturation, social experience, neural system, vocal development, vocal skill, development, infant, amygdala, anterior cingulate gyrus, voice, sound, adult, neuroethology, primate behavior, functional neuroanatomy, atlasSCR_000416(NICHD Developmental Neuroethology - Laboratory of Comparative Ethology, RRID:SCR_000416)National Institute of Child Health and Human Development NICHDLast checked upnif-0000-00398

Brain atlas of the common marmosetResource, atlas, data or information resourceNO LONGER IN SERVICE. Documented on October 1, 2019.\\nThe first brain atlas for the common marmoset to be made available since a printed atlas by Stephan, Baron and Schwerdtfeger published in 1980. It is a combined histological and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) atlas constructed from the brains of two adult female marmosets. Histological sections were processed from Nissl staining and digitized to produce an atlas in a large format that facilitates visualization of structures with significant detail. Naming of identifiable brain structures was performed utilizing current terminology. For the present atlas, an adult female was perfused through the heart with PBS followed by 10% formalin. The brain was then sent to Neuroscience Associates of Knoxville, TN, who prepared the brain for histological analysis. The brain was cut in the coronal (frontal) plane at 40 microns, every sixth section stained for Nissl granules with thionine and every seventh section stained for myelinated fibers with the Weil technique. The mounted sections were photographed at the NIH (Medical Arts and Photography Branch). The equipment used was a Nikon Multiphot optical bench with Zeiss Luminar 100 mm lens, and scanned with a Better Light 6100 scan back driven by Better Light Viewfinder 5.3 software. The final images were saved as arrays of 6000x8000 pixels in Adobe Photoshop 6.0. A scale in mm provided with these images permitted construction of the final Nissl atlas files with a horizontal and vertical scale. Some additional re-touching (brightness and contrast) was done with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0. The schematic (labeled) atlas plates were created from the Nissl images. The nomenclature came almost exclusively from, where a rhesus monkey brain with structures labeled can be found. The labels for the MRI images were placed by M. R. Zametkin, under supervision from Dr. Newman.callithrix jacchus jacchus, marmoset, primate neuroanatomy, callitrichidae, female, forebrain, thalamus, midbrain, brainstem, magnetic resonance imaging, adult, callithrix, histological section, nissl staining, brain, mriSCR_005135(Brain atlas of the common marmoset, RRID:SCR_005135)NICHD Developmental Neuroethology - Laboratory of Comparative Ethology NICHD, NIH, NINDSPMID:19744521Last checked upnlx_144140
TRIGRResource, clinical trialInternational, randomized, double-blinded trial to determine whether weaning to a casein hydrolysate formula during the first 6-8 months of life in place of cow milk based formula reduces the incidence of autoimmunity and type 1 diabetes in genetically susceptible newborn infants. 2160 eligible infants were randomized to test or control formulas when mothers decide to wean from exclusive breastfeeding. The participants will be monitored up to the age of 10 years for the appearance of diabetes-predictive autoantibodies and clinical type 1 diabetes. The TRIGR trial will determine whether delayed exposure to intact food proteins will reduce the chances of developing type 1 diabetes later in life. All babies in the study received the recommendation to breastfeed for at least the first six months of life. If a mother was unable to exclusively breastfeed before the baby was 8 months of age, her child was randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group of these babies received a trial formula based on extensively hydrolyzed protein; the other group received another trial formula containing a smaller amount of hydrolyzed protein. In the hydrolyzed formula, the big protein molecules have been split into very small fragments to provide a source of nutritional amino acids, but the fragments are likely too small to stimulate the immune system. The TRIGR trial will also be able to analyze whether exclusive breastfeeding per se can reduce the risk of the children to develop type 1 diabetes.casein hydrolysate formula, newborn, hydrolyzed infant formula, genetically susceptible, insulin, cow's milk, infant, feeding, diet, intervention, genetic risk, bibliography, dietary intervention, wean, prevention, nutrition, nonhydrolyzed infant formula, breast feeding, infant formulaSCR_001550(TRIGR, RRID:SCR_001550)University of South Florida; Florida; USA Type 1 diabetes, First-degree relative with Type 1 diabetesNICHD, RTD programme Quality of Life and Management of Living Resourceslisted by:, NIDDK Research Resources, NIDDK Information Network, submitted by: NIDDK Information NetworkReferences (2)Last checked upnlx_152860,

NICHD SECCYDResource, clinical database, data or information resource, databaseIt is the most comprehensive child care study conducted to date to determine how variations in child care are related to children''s development. The NICHD SECCYD is a longitudinal study initiated by The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in 1989 to answer the many questions about the relationship between child care experiences and characteristics and children''s developmental outcomes. After a thorough scientific review, the NICHD selected a research team located at universities across the U.S., and at the NICHD, together providing multiple perspectives on and interests in child care research. The network was led and managed by a Steering Committee which included an independent chairperson, one representative from each of the grantee sites, one representative from the data center and one representative from NICHD. The Steering Committee established policies and procedures that governed the operations of the network, including its publication procedures. The progress of the study was monitored by NICHD and by the Steering Committee with guidance from an Advisory Board which was nominated by the Director of NICHD. This team of researchers worked cooperatively to design and implement the study, and in 1991, enrolled a very diverse sample of children and their families at 10 locations across the U.S. The NICHD SECCYD is characterized by a complex and detailed study design which takes into account many variables, including characteristics of the child care and the family environment. Researchers assessed children''s development using multiple methods (trained observers, interviewers, questionnaires, and testing) and measuring many facets of children''s development (social, emotional, intellectual, language development, behavioral problems and adjustment, and physical health). The 1,364 children and their families enrolled in the study were followed from birth to age 3 years during Phase I of the study from 1991-1994. Phase II of the study was conducted between 1995-2000 to follow the 1226 children and families continuing to participate from age 54 months through their second year in school. Phase III of the study was conducted between 2000 - 2005 to follow over 1100 of the children through their seventh year in school. Phase IV was conducted between 2006 2007 to follow over 1000 of the original families through age 15. The NICHD SECCYD was conducted by a network of investigators, the NICHD Early Child Care Research Network. You may view information regarding data assessments, study publications, as well as a listing of the study researchers and committee members on the study website located at Qualified researchers are able to become affiliates with the study to utilize data from all phases of the study.

The study follows neighborhoods over time, as well as children and families. Two waves have been conducted to date, in 2000-2001 (L.A.FANS 1) and again beginning in 2006 through early 2009 (L.A. FANS 2). L.A.FANS-2 will significantly enhance the utility of the L.A.FANS data for studies of adult health disparities by: 1) Replicating self-reported health measures from L.A.FANS-1 and collecting new self-reports on treatment, health behaviors, functional limitations, quality and quantity of sleep, anxiety, health status vignettes, and changes in health status since the first interview; 2) Collecting physiological markers of disease and health status, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, lung function, immune function, and cardiovascular disease; and 3) Expanding the data collected on adults'' work conditions, stressful experiences, and social ties. Wherever possible, L.A.FANS uses well-tested questions or sections from national surveys, such as the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), National Longitudinal Surveys (NLS), and National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), and other urban surveys, such as the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods, to facilitate comparisons. Data Availability: Public use data, study design, and questionnaire content from L.A.FANS are available for downloading. Researchers can also apply for a restricted use version of the L.A.FANS-1 data that contain considerable contextual and geographically-referenced information.
