    Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Research, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Melbourne, Australia
    Am J Psychiatry 158:107-15. 2001
    ..Olfactory identification deficits and their relationship to negative symptoms in patients with schizophrenia were examined in patients with recent-onset psychosis, the majority of whom were neuroleptic naive...

    S J Wood
    The Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Research and Academic Unit, The University of Melbourne and Sunshine Hospital, Melbourne, Australia
    Schizophr Res 52:37-46. 2001
    ..Alternatively, the period before the onset of frank psychotic symptoms may be the point of greatest risk for progressive change...

    A Lin
    Orygen Youth Health Research Centre and Centre for Youth Mental Health, University of Melbourne, Australia
    Schizophr Res 132:1-7. 2011
    ..This longitudinal study aimed to investigate neurocognitive predictors of poor functional outcome in a group identified as ultra-high risk (UHR) for psychosis between two and 13 years prior...

    D Velakoulis
    Applied Schizophrenia Division, Mental Health Research Institute of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia
    Biol Psychiatry 50:531-9. 2001
    ..Group discrimination on the basis of hippocampal volume and shape measures was moderately good. A full three-dimensional analysis of hippocampal shape, based on large samples, would be a useful extension of the study...
