ABSTRACT
The article discusses the cognitive dysfunction at the age of onset in people suffering with schizophrenia. A person who is ailing with schizophrenia gets psychotic disorders. A study concluded that an understanding of the factors which contribute to age at onset helps in giving relevant information about the pathological mechanisms operating in this disorder. An article which was published in one of the previous issues of the journal provided behavioral evidence relevant to the findings of genetic and environmental influences on age at onset of schizophrenia. In the article it was mentioned that worse visuospatial working memory was related to increased genetic susceptibility to schizophrenia.
