BACKGROUND Visual and verbal episodic memory deficits are putative endophenotypes for schizophrenia; however, the extent of any genetic overlap of these with schizophrenia is unclear. In this study, we set out to quantify the genetic and environmental contributions to variance in visual and verbal memory performance, and to quantify their genetic relationship with schizophrenia. METHOD We applied bivariate genetic modelling to 280 twins in a classic twin study design, including monozygotic… CONTINUE READING
