    Roni G Alder
    Department of Psychology, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
    PLoS ONE 8:e62904. 2013
    ..Together, the findings suggest that news of risk for schizophrenia has the potential to engender distress, although participants' anticipations and reflections of responses are not corroborated in prospectively measured outcomes...

    Richard J Linscott
    Department of Psychology, University of Otago, Dunedin 9054, New Zealand
    Psychiatry Res 166:184-91. 2009
    ..Awareness of schizophrenia risk creates a significant adverse impact, the level of which may be greatest among those with lowest risk...

    Richard J Linscott
    Department of Psychology, University of Otago, PO Box 56, Dunedin 9054, New Zealand
    Schizophr Bull 36:811-29. 2010
    ..A second fundamental question remains outstanding: is schizophrenia truly a group of schizophrenias, with taxonic divisions separating its types? We make design and analysis suggestions for future research addressing these questions...

    J Pers Disord 21:225-42. 2007

    Department of Psychology, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
    Neuropsychology 15:576-85. 2001
