In the evening, a gigantic bowl with thousands of pinprick holes is inverted over the Earth—or so the thinking went. The sun, suspended above it all, streams through in a brilliant scattering of starry points. Over the centuries, we slowly came to a clearer understanding of the structure and workings of the universe,...

Is schizophrenia risk 'around 80% genetic'?
Conclusion This study explores how much of the risk of developing schizophrenia or related disorders may be explained by genetics. It shows that schizophrenia and related disorders are quite rare – affecting about 1% of the general population. Their observed co-diagnosis rate in both twins – about a third for identical and less than 10% for non-identical twins – was lower than has been observed in other studies. This seems to suggest that while a high proportion of an individual's susceptibility may come down to hereditary factors, environmental factors must still be play a substantial role. This type of ...
