Brief description Schizophrenia affects about 1% of the population. Its typical progression over a lifetime leads to long-term impairment of cognition, reality distortion, and an impoverished quality of life. Most likely, multiple genes, interacting together or with environmental factors, are involved. Using a novel approach to its partition, WA researchers aim to unravel complex networks of genes affecting memory and brain function in a cognitive deficit subtype of schizophrenia they have identified recently.
