MedPage Today (5/18, DePeau-Wilson) reported, “People diagnosed with schizophrenia showed early signs of cognitive decline as well as rapid declines later in life,” researchers concluded in a study revealing that “on average, individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia experienced a 16-point drop in IQ from early adolescence through adulthood, as compared with a nine-point decline for people with other psychotic disorders.” Included in the study were “428 individuals (212 with schizophrenia and 216 with other psychotic disorders).” The findings were published online May 18 in JAMA Psychiatry.
