Epigenetic predictors of psychotic symptoms in adolescence
thesisposted on 2015-06-01, 00:00 authored by Alicia Tompson
This thesis focused on the role of epigenetic processes in the development of psychotic symptoms during adolescence. The findings suggest that exposure to influenza and/or diabetes/glycosuria during gestation may predispose an individual to the later development of psychotic symptoms via altered expression of specific genes involved in early brain development.
