A sampling of the themes covered:

  • Incidence and consequence of schizophrenia: the view from round the world.
  • Schizophrenia: neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative, or both?
  • The molecular genetics and proteomics of schizophrenia.
  • Marijuana use: distraction from the problems, or key to the disease?

Example text

Thus, Vollema et al. (2002)Vollema and colleagues reported that scores on the positive dimension of a schizotypy questionnaire administered to relatives of patients with psychotic disorders corresponded to their genetic risk of psychosis. Fanous et al. (2001) demonstrated that interview-based positive and negative symptoms in schizophrenia predicted their equivalent subclinical symptom dimensions in non-psychotic relatives, implying an aetiological continuum between the subclinical and the clinical psychosis phenotypes.

Cognitive disorganisation and introvertive anhedonia), suggesting different aetiological mechanisms for the various scales of the subclinical psychosis phenotype. In a recent, general population study using both self-reported and interview-based measures of positive and negative dimensions of psychotic experiences in 257 subjects belonging to 82 families, significant family-specific variations for both positive and negative subclinical psychosis dimensions were demonstrated, with between-family proportions of total variance between 10 and 40%.

2003), salience attribution (Jensen et al. 2008; Kapur 2003), treatment response (Arranz and de Leon 2007), measures of course and outcome (Verdoux et al. 1996), subclinical psychosis expression (Stefanis et al. 2004; Schurhoff et al. 2003, 2007), neurotic symptoms (Zinkstok et al. 2008) and dynamic cerebral phenotypes in early-onset groups (Arango et al. 2008). The appeal of studying endophenotypes is obvious in that, compared to clinical diagnoses which are often characterised by substantial heterogeneity, endophenotypes appear to be cleaner, simpler constituents of psychopathology and (maybe falsely) promise improved chances of detecting true gene effects.
