Live Discussion: The Extended Psychosis Phenotype

Jim van Os

Ian Kelleher

Irving Gottesman

Our April 5 Webinar, facilitated by Schizophrenia Bulletin and Oxford Press, featured talks by Jim van Os, presenting work from his group at the Maastricht University Medical Center, The Netherlands, and Ian Kelleher, presenting his work in Mary Cannon's group at the Royal College of Surgeons, Dublin, Ireland. Mystery guest Irving Gottesman of the University of Minnesota followed with a comment on the discussions.

If you missed the session, or just want to review it, click on the image below. In addition, you are still welcome to submit comments on either the background reading or any of the presentations. Gottesman also suggested the following citations as valuable background: Gottesman, 1987 and Strömgren, 1994.

Courtesy of Schizophrenia Bulletin and Oxford Press, you can read an open-access introductory article to the theme by van Os and Richard Linscott.
