      Sensitivity to external demands is essential for adaptation to dynamic environments, but comes at the cost of increased risk of adverse outcomes when facing poor environmental conditions. Here, we apply a novel methodology ...
    • Genome-wide analysis reveals extensive genetic overlap between schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and intelligence 

      Smeland, Olav Bjerkehagen; Bahrami, Shahram; Frei, Oleksandr; Shadrin, Alexey A.; O'Connell, Kevin; Savage, Jeanne E.; Watanabe, Kyoko; Krull, Florian; Bettella, Francesco; Steen, Nils Eiel; Ueland, Torill; Posthuma, Danielle; Djurovic, Srdjan; Dale, Anders; Andreassen, Ole Andreas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Schizophrenia (SCZ) and bipolar disorder (BD) are severe mental disorders associated with cognitive impairment, which is considered a major determinant of functional outcome. Despite this, the etiology of the cognitive ...
