Sex differences in sub-clinical psychosis—Results from a community study over 30years
Schizophrenia Research, 06/13/2012
Rossler W et al. – The authors found no significant sex differences in sub–clinical psychosis over time with respect to age of onset, symptomatology, course, or psycho–social outcome. Thus it appears that sex differences in psychosis manifest themselves at the high end of the continuum rather than within the sub–threshold range. Possibly males and females have separate thresholds for certain symptoms because they are differently vulnerable or exposed to various risk factors.
