Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain.

Subsection of genetic risk correlations among brain disorders and quantitative phenotypes.

Heritability analysis of brain disorders points to pervasive sharing of genetic risk among psychiatric disorders. These correlations are largely absent among neurological disorders but are present for both groups in relation to neurocognitive quantitative phenotypes. Only significant correlations shown. Line color and solidity indicate direction and magnitude of correlation, respectively. - Science  22 Jun 2018: Vol. 360, Issue 6395, eaap8757
