Psychiatric Times chronicles the peripatetic progress of “schizophrenia” research, from schizophrenogenic mothers to unspecified genetic lesions and back again via second-trimester embryonic insults, to “Urbanization, migration (especially to a place where the person is very different from the new population), cannabis use (especially in youth), advanced paternal age, childhood abuse/trauma, and social marginalization . . . Nonetheless, the exact neurobiological pathway to pathogenesis and how the various genetic and environmental factors interact still eludes psychiatry.”
