Reconciling the mutation-selection balance model with the schizotypy-creativity connection

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (4):418-418 (2006)
Abstract
Keller & Miller (K&M) make a persuasive case for the role of mutation-selection balance in the persistence of such disorders as schizophrenia. However, there is evidence relating illness liability to creativity, which seems to imply balancing selection. I argue for a hybrid position, where schizotypal personality traits can have fitness advantages or disadvantages, with mutational load and neurodevelopmental conditions determining which outcome is observed.
