There is growing evidence of partial aetiological overlap between schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (BP) from linkage analysis, genetic epidemiology and molecular genetics studies. In the present study we investigated whether individual polymorphisms or haplotypes of the DAO and G72(DAOA)/G30 genes, which have been previously implicated in schizophrenia,(More)
Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are major psychiatric diseases that have a strong genetic element. Markers in the vicinity of the CHRNA7 gene at 15q13-q14 have been linked with an endophenotype of schizophrenia, P50 sensory gating disorder, with schizophrenia itself and with bipolar disorder. We have measured the copy number of the polymorphic partial(More)
OBJECTIVE In the study of bipolar affective disorder and schizophrenia, there is some evidence suggesting a phenotypic and genetic overlap between the two disorders. A possible link between bipolar affective disorder and schizophrenia remains arguable, however. The authors hypothesized that dysbindin, which is a probable susceptibility gene for(More)
Information and Communication Technology education is a diverse area that is subject to the pressures generated by the changing structure of Information Technology. A project funded by the Australian University Teaching Committee into the nature of innovation and best practice in ICT education found that the dissemination of ideas was an issue. A second(More)

Clozapine is a potent antagonist of 5-HT3 receptors, which are ligand-gated ion channels that mediate rapid excitatory responses in the central nervous system. Two different isoforms of 5-HT3 receptor subunit genes (HTR3A and HTR3B) have been identified. They have been assigned to chromosome 11q23.1-q23.2, a region which in the past has been linked to(More)

Clozapine is an atypical antipsychotic drug known as being more effective compared with traditional antipsychotics for patients with poor response or resistance to treatment. It has been demonstrated that clozapine modulates hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal activity and affects central brain-derived neurotrophic factor levels, which could explain part of its(More)
Although current psychiatric nosology separates bipolar disorder and schizophrenia into non-overlapping categories, there is growing evidence of a partial aetiological overlap between them from linkage, genetic epidemiology and molecular genetics studies. Thus, it is important to determine whether genes implicated in the aetiology of schizophrenia play a(More)
