2 Comments: Study: Disparate Psychiatric Disorders Share Widespread Genetic Overlap
Can you please give some of the genetics related to ADHD and relate psychiatric disorders and more information about “the high degree of genetic correlation among the psychiatric disorders suggests that current clinical categories do not accurately reflect the underlying biology.” Is MTHFR one of the genes involved in these conditions? Thanks.
