ZNF804A SNP rs1344706 confers genome-wide risk for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Both disorders affect cortical thickness. To determine if single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across ZNF804A are associated with cortical thinning, we investigated 63 SNPs (including rs1344706) in 365 psychosis patients and healthy controls. Results show no significant associations.
