Symptoms of schizophrenia usually appear in adolescence or young adulthood, but new research reveals that the brain disease likely begins very early in development, toward the end of the first trimester of pregnancy. The finding opens up a new understanding of this devastating disease and the potential for new treatment possibilities in utero.

A paper describing the research was published today in Translational Psychiatry by scientists at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo and other institutions.
