    Exclamation Correlation of Psychosis and Academic Performance

    Br J Psychiatry. 2004 Apr;184:327-9.


    Psychosis and academic performance.

    BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that psychosis genes might be associated with beneficial effects, explaining their high frequency in all human populations. AIMS: To test the relationship between academic success and the incidence of psychotic disorders. METHOD: The unusually complete demographic and scholastic records available in Iceland were used to locate academically accomplished individuals and assess the probability of previously identified patients with mental disorders and their relatives being among such groups. RESULTS: Close relatives of successful students showed increased risks of psychosis. Individuals who subsequently developed psychosis and relatives of people with psychosis excelled in school performance, particularly in mathematics. CONCLUSIONS: The study supports the hypothesis that stimulation associated with psychotic tendencies enhances performance in academic settings.
