Beneath the surface: genetic factors in schizophrenia

There are a multitude of potential reasons behind the onset of schizophrenia. While some may explain the condition through external factors, such as drug use or trauma, this Thematic Series considers the potential causes lying low beneath our own genetic material. It has been suggested that certain individuals could be predisposed to schizophrenia, potentially through family members or diathesis-stress models. Treatments therefore have the potential to be adapted to an individual based on genetics, as the influence of pharmacogenomics spreads further into neuropsychiatric illnesses. Therefore, genetics may be able to reveal answers about the origins of schizophrenia, but also the best treatment methods for patients.
