In a paper, published in the October 2005 issue of the Journal of Genetic Counseling (Vol. 14, No. 5, pp. 329-340), the findings of the research to elucidate the nature of environmental vulnerability factors involved in Schizophrenia, a common complex disorder characterized by psychosis, cognitive dysfunction and negative symptoms, are presented. The limitations of the findings and implications of these advances for genetic counseling practice are also discussed.
