Editorial: Maturing insights into the genetic architecture of neurodevelopmental disorders – from common and rare variant interplay to precision psychiatry
The categorisation of neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders by clinical syndromes, rather than by aetiology, continues to obstruct progress in biomarker identification as well as innovative drug development and effective treatment in general. There is a decisive move to think of neurodevelopmental disorders as a spectrum rather than discrete categorical entities.
