The genetic variations in SAP97 gene and the risk of schizophrenia in the Chinese Han population: a further study
Conclusion Our data are further to indicate that the SAP97 gene polymorphisms may affect neurocognitive function especially verbal memory and the first to suggest that the SAP97 rs9843659 polymorphism may influence abstract thinking of schizophrenic patients in the southern Han Chinese population.

The role of the gut microbiota in the pathophysiology of mental and neurological disorders
In recent decades, the concept of the gut microbiota as a potential novel therapeutic strategy for mental health has emerged. The tiny microbes inhabiting our gut communicate through a bidirectional communication signaling with the brain that influences gut physiology, brain function and behavior. Accumulating evidence suggests that perturbation of the gut microbiota contributes to the pathophysiology of mental illnesses including autism, depression and anxiety as well as neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. This review will highlight recent findings in both human and animal studies...

Schizophrenia in a patient with full mutation of Fragile X gene and intellectual disability: a ‘STEP’ towards better understanding
We report a case of schizophrenia in a male patient diagnosed with Fragile X syndrome. The patient has been followed up for a period of 3 years. The diagnostic and management challenges are discussed. This is a unique case of schizophrenia in Fragile X syndrome. We discuss the common molecular pathways to the expression of both schizophrenia and Fragile X syndrome. This is the first case report of schizophrenia in a patient with diagnosis of Fragile X syndrome in Australia. (Source: Psychiatric Genetics)

Hemizygous mutations in L1CAM in two unrelated male probands with childhood onset psychosis
Conclusions This is the first study reporting a possible extension of the phenotype of L1CAM variant carriers to childhood onset psychosis. The family history and presence of other significant rare genetic variants in the patients suggest that there may be genetic interactions modulating the presentation. (Source: Psychiatric Genetics)

Anticipatory oculomotor responses in parents of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
Conclusions Saccadic performance differed between the two groups of parents, as those with children with ADHD showed a failure to withhold the initiation of responses in the absence of external control references (gap condition) on tasks with low cognitive load (prosaccadic). These anticipatory responses were related to inattention traits. Our results support the familial compound of ADHD as a multifactorial disorder. (Source: Psychiatric Genetics)
