Schizophrenia Research Forum

Schizophrenia Research Forum Omnibus

Here I post a backlog of news stories I’ve written for Schizophrenia Research Forum since March 2013 — 30 in all!


For me, highlights include two landmark studies finding common genetic roots among different psychiatric disorders (Landmark GWAS Links Different Disorders To Same SNPs 3/7/13, and Substantial Genetic Overlaps Measured Between Psychiatric Disorders 8/20/13), the CLARITY technique that reveals intricate details of brain structure (Brain Anatomy Revealed With CLARITY 3/10/13), and an interesting idea about how delusions remain so fixed in schizophrenia (Delusions Linked to Bottom-Up and Top-Down Processes 9/23/13).
