Abstract
Psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, are amongst the most severe and enduring mental illnesses.

This is where endophenotypes – heritable traits associated with the illness and observed in unaffected family members of patients – could be valuable. Endophenotypes are linked to the genetic underpinnings of disorders, and can help elucidate the functional effects of genetic risk variants. This thesis investigates endophenotypes for psychosis, with the overal...
