Abstract

It has been suggested that there are chromosomal risk regions that might contribute to the development of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and autism. The aim of this project is to investigate the existence of maternal effects in OCD and autism - effects of mother’s environment and genotype on offspring's phenotype - based on family studies in Swedish registry data.
