Nicodemus and colleagues assessed the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms in ZNF804A and the ZNF804A polygenic score with measures of cognition in cases with psychosis and assessed whether epistasis within the ZNF804A pathway could explain additional variation above and beyond that explained by the polygenic score.
