A study led by researchers at Lawson Health Research Institute (Lawson) provides clinical validation of EpiSign, a molecular genomics test that diagnoses rare, heritable neurodevelopmental conditions. 

Brain scans from three different angles

Difficulties with communication are some of the earliest symptoms of psychosis. A new study has found that this may be because, like a small airport trying to handle all the air traffic from a big hub like Pearson International Airport, parts of the brain not meant to process language are trying to perform this complex job in patients with psychosis.

The ability of humans to use language may also be what puts us at the unique risk of developing psychosis, a subset of mental illness characterized by changes in emotions, impaired functioning, and a disconnection from reality.
