  • whereas
  • By linear regression analysis, 7 SNPs (4 in PPARA , 2 in PPARGC1A , 1 in PPARG ) were significantly associated with the latent LVDF trait, whereas a range of 0-4 SNPs were associated with each of the 14 measured echocardiography-derived endophenotypes. (beds.ac.uk)
  • outcome
  • Latent trait modeling can be an effective tool for combining adverse pregnancy and perinatal outcomes to assess prenatal exposure to AED, but evaluation of the selected components is essential to ensure the validity of the combined outcome. (beds.ac.uk)
  • 1 Such widespread repeatable-indeed, predictable-expression of similar traits should make researchers question whether this outcome is due to chance. (icr.org)
  • assessment
  • In the 1970s and 1980s, comparative judgement appeared, almost for the first time in educational assessment, as a theoretical basis or precursor for the new Latent Trait or Item Response Theories. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypothesis
  • We tested the hypothesis that PPAR -complex gene variants modulate LVDF traits by examining individual SNP associations and within-gene and gene-gene interaction effects. (beds.ac.uk)
  • The phenomenon suggests a testable hypothesis that these creatures share common programming that powers the production of specific traits suitable for certain conditions. (icr.org)
  • variable
  • This is the correlation coefficient between a latent trait and an observed variable. (oreilly.com)
  • This means that as one moves from one side of the latent variable to the other, the chance of giving a positive response should never decrease. (wikipedia.org)
  • objective
  • Using objective contextual stress interviews with adolescents and their mothers to assess early adversity, we examined the cumulative impact of nine types of early adversity on early adolescents girls' latent trait cortisol (LTC). (salimetrics.com)
  • refers
  • In this case, Y refers to a response to a particular test item which is determined by the latent construct being measured. (wikipedia.org)
  • psychological
  • or Steyer, Schmitt & Eid, 1999), psychological interventions aim at changing traits , not at changing states, and trait change , not mere State change, is also the primary interest in develop-mental psychology. (springer.com)
  • genetic
  • Genetic association was assessed between measured and latent LVDF traits and 64 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in three peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) -complex genes involved in the transcriptional regulation of fatty acid metabolism. (beds.ac.uk)
  • Two scientists highlighted phenotypic plasticity's significance to adaptation and diversification by saying that the "environmental effects on trait morphology can be substantial, outweighing both genetic effects and reproductive advantages. (icr.org)
  • Individual
  • Barring abrupt, wholesale destruction of large populations or their habitats, individual creatures exhibit remarkable resilience to environmental changes by expressing highly suitable traits or ingeniously modified behaviors. (icr.org)
  • directly
  • 7 But environments do not directly effect trait morphology through mystical means like "sending instructions. (icr.org)
