Abstract

An individual’s risk for schizophrenia is usually evaluated in terms of their familial, environmental and neurobiological risk factors. Our research indicates that factors conferring resilience to becoming ill are just as important. This study will use brain imaging techniques to study individuals with schizophrenia and their unaffected siblings, aiming to identify factors that have provided the unaffected siblings with resilience to becoming ill, despite their familial risk.
