The current study utilized an instrumental measure of posture in individuals at ultrahigh risk (UHR) for psychosis (n=43) and healthy controls (n=44). Positive and negative symptoms were assessed twice over 12months. Results showed that increased postural sway in the UHR group predicted changes in… CONTINUE READING
