Earlier research in obstetric high-risk research in schizophrenia with the McNeil research group at Lund University, lead to the construction of the McNeil-Sjöström OC scale, an instrument sensitive to identify obstetric and neonatal riskfactors in the fetus with special emphasis on asfyxia and later development of different psychiatric illnesses in the offspring.
