Scientific summary

The main objective of the research I am involved in is the better understanding of the causes of psychiatric, and in particular psychotic disorders.

Some of the studies I was involved in, are aimed at a better understanding and a more valid definition of the psychiatric phenotypes for research. As such we explored alternative approaches like endophenotypes (in particular cognitive measures) and quantitative/ dimensional definitions e.g. psychotic and sub-clinical (i.e. schizotypal) dimensions.

I also participated in studies of genetic and environmental (cannabis, childhood trauma, discrimination etc.) risk factors for psychotic disorders.

In our lab we also published some of the most recent, up to date, data on epidemiology of psychotic disorders in France.

Finally we recently developed a model that postulates the existence of variability factors (on top of the more classical risk factors) to explain the etiology of schizophrenia.
