Formatted Abstract/Summary
•  Developmental vitamin D deficiency is a candidate risk factor for schizophrenia.
•  Over the last decade evidence has accumulated demonstrating that vitamin D
   plays a role in brain development.
•  The Developmental Vitamin D (DVDJ deficiency rat model demonstrates a range
   of altered neurobiological features some of which are consistent with features
   of schizophrenia.
• The DVD deficiency model confirms the biological plausibility of this exposure for
   schizophrenia, but further epidemiologic research is required in order to demonstrate
   a link to the disease.
