Men With Psychosis May Have Lower Than Average IQ.

Medwire (7/26, McDermid) reports that adult males “with psychosis tend to have lower than average IQ, along with evidence of learning difficulties in childhood,” according to a study published online July 22 in the journal Psychiatry Research. After studying about 50,000 military draftees in Switzerland, researchers “found that the 61 men who had psychotic disorders diagnosed, based on their responses to a psychiatric screening questionnaire, had a significantly lower average IQ than those without mental disorders.”
