Developmental gene-environment interactions: A model for psychosis
Date:8/29/2010

und it difficult to unveil the causes of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. 100 years after the modern definition of schizophrenia, research is beginning to understand the biological mechanisms underlying the symptoms of this most mysterious of mental disorders and the psychosocial factors that moderate their expression.

Recent research findings in psychiatry indicate that genes are likely to influence disorder mostly indirectly, via their impact upon physiological pathways, and work by increasing the likelihood of developing a psychiatric disorder, rather than as direct causes of disorder per se (Van Os et al., 2008).

A significant proportion of psychotic disorder may be understood as the rare poor outcome of a common developmental phenotype characterized by persistence of detectable subclinical psychotic experiences.

The current model of gene-environment interaction is nurturing promising approaches to understand the symptoms of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders and improve treatment.
