Read Transcript

The age group is young teenagers and young adults tend to show it most. That's when it tends to blossom. The demographics, of schizophrenia I think are a little bit more male than female but it affects everybody it affects all ethnic backgrounds, you may get the occasional population with a little higher but I don't think those issues are as central as the issue of what's happened in the body, with the genes, with the brain, that's what about.

Can family relationships influence that? Perhaps to some degree, not as much as we first thought, as I said the biology, the brain issues in Schizophrenia are paramount.
