    not surprising, both become manic. In alzheimer's patient people who are bi polar seemed to have delusions quite a bit more.

    This can't be true. The Church of $cientology told me (for a nominal fee) that all psychiatric conditions were rooted in phetons, not genetics!

    Everything is controlled at its "baseline" by genetics. Someone that is heavy maybe that way partly because of their genetics...

    Not saying some of that couldn't be eating to much either.

    Closer to a cure for schizophrenia...

    Scientists open the 'black box' of schizophrenia with genetic finding
    January 28 2016 - For the first time, scientists have pinned down a molecular process in the brain that helps to trigger schizophrenia. The researchers involved in the landmark study, which was published Wednesday in the journal Nature, say the discovery of this new genetic pathway likely reveals what goes wrong neurologically in a young person diagnosed with the devastating disorder.
