Buzzword Bingo: Schizophrenia Gene Discovery

From the blog-site of Auntie Psychiatry:

“Don’t get me wrong – I’m very keen to learn about the latest scientific findings on the ‘Genetics of Mental Illness’. Does schizophrenia really have a ‘significant genetic component’ as is so often claimed? The hunt is on.

But I have yet to find a satisfying report on the subject. Light on substance, brimming with froth, each one containing the same essential ingredients : Breakthrough discovery, New insights, Step towards a real diagnostic test, Hope for new drug treatments.

So … are scientists on the brink of a bright new dawn?  It’s kind of hard to tell.

Anybody would think that what really matters is the pizzazz.”
