Strong evidence for genetic vulnerability for SZ.
- Gottesman's family study of SZ shows genetic similarity and shared risk of SZ are closely related
- Tienari et al's adoption studies show how children adopted with SZ parents are still at risk of developing SZ if adopted to families without a history of SZ
- So SZ may not be completely genetic, but there is strong evidence that genetic factors make some people more vulnerable
Mixed support for dopamine hypothesis
