No link found between subcortical brain volumes, genetic risk for schizophrenia

A new study evaluated the relationship between common genetic variants implicated in schizophrenia and those associated with subcortical brain volumes, and found no evidence of genetic overlap between schizophrenia risk and subcortical volume measures. The effort was led by the ENIGMA Center for Worldwide Medicine, Imaging, and Genomics, which brings together vast international datasets to study human brain disorders. Read more at Science Daily.
