- Shared Decision Making With Young People at Ultra High Risk of Psychotic Disorderby Magenta Bender Simmons on October 4, 2021
Introduction: While the majority of young people who meet the criteria for being considered at increased risk of psychosis do not go on to develop a psychotic disorder, young people are currently being identified and treated in early intervention services. Ethical concerns have been raised concerning the decision about whether or not to provide treatment, and if so, what type of treatment. This study sought to support young people themselves to make these decisions with support from their...
- A network analysis and empirical validation of executive deficits in patients with psychosis and their healthy siblingsby Manuel J Cuesta on September 14, 2021
CONCLUSIONS: Four cognitive processes underlying WCST performance were identified by the network analysis. PER, IS and LNG were associated with and shared common antecedent, concurrent and outcome validators, while FMS was not associated with external validators. These four underlying dysfunctions might help disentangle the neurofunctional basis of executive deficits in psychosis.
- Shared Genetic Background between Parkinson's Disease and Schizophrenia: A Two-Sample Mendelian Randomization Studyby Kiwon Kim on August 27, 2021
Background and objectives: Parkinson's disease (PD) and schizophrenia often share symptomatology. Psychotic symptoms are prevalent in patients with PD, and similar motor symptoms with extrapyramidal signs are frequently observed in antipsychotic-naïve patients with schizophrenia as well as premorbid families. However, few studies have examined the relationship between PD and schizophrenia. We performed this study to evaluate whether genetic variants which increase PD risk influence the risk of...
