Can we predict psychotic disorders using a blood test? This week on Teach Me in 10, we're joined by psychiatrist and PhD student Dr David Mongan, who talks to us about proteomic prediction models for psychotic disorders and psychotic experiences.
How might models that incorporate proteomic data be used to predict the development of psychosis? That's Mongan's current research focus, and the subject of his latest paper published in JAMA Psychiatry. In less than 10 minutes, Mongan explains how psychotic disorders exist on a "continuum", how his latest research contributes to our understanding of psychotic disorders and takes us a step closer to personalized treatment in psychiatry.
