Thomas Wolfers Towards precision medicine in psychiatryThomas Wolfers shows that one patient with schizophrenia, ADHD or bipolar disorder is very likely to be biologically very different from another patient with the same diagnosis. This raises the rhetorical questions: “Who is the average patient in psychiatry?” There are extreme inter individual differences between patients with the same mental disorder. Wolfers presents a workable route towards precision medicine in psychiatry by describing each patient’s brain in relation to the brain of the general population. Through this brain characteristic can be described at the level of the individual patient.
