Smoking Seen as Schizophrenia Risk Factor

March 28, 2012   A novel study suggests difficulties processing auditory stimuli, genetic factors and smoking are potential risk factors for schizophrenia. Schizophrenia has long been known to be hereditary although researchers have been unable to determine the main gene responsible for the condition. In order to study the genetic background of schizophrenia, the frequency of particular risk genes between healthy and ill people has mostly been compared until now. In a new study, researchers used electroencephalography (EEG) to study the processing of simple acoustic stimuli (a sequence of similar clicks).
