Telltale memory signs could indicate psychosis risk

Telltale signs in IQ, memory or social intelligence tests could identify if people are at risk of psychosis, according to the findings of a recent study.

The discovery was made by NUI Galway Professor of Psychology, Gary Donohoe, in association with colleagues from Trinity College, Dublin. It was published recently in the leading international peer-reviewed journal JAMA Psychiatry.

The research revealed that genetic variants associated with a risk of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders are also associated with performance on measures of IQ, memory and social cognition.

Clarinbridge goes Rustic

In the pretty town of Clarinbridge, a picturesque pub, Sherry's Bar, provides a surprising venue for Rustic Grub. Recently opened in a village already well supplied with good cafes and tea-rooms, it has hit the ground running — which says a lot about chef Maria McNeela and the ethos she has brought with her. There are very few people who could match the passion and respect that she has for food, and the menu reflects this in a variety of ways. She has found a space to showcase the best that the west has to offer and cooks in the Irish tradition — unrestrained, imaginative, and dedicated to pleasure — maternalism at its finest.
