About this book

This volume tries to put current therapy - achievements, shortcomings, remaining medical needs - and emerging new targets into the context of increasing knowledge regarding the genetic and neurodevelopmental contributions to the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Some of the chapters also deal with respective experimental and clinical methodology, biomarkers, and translational aspects of drug development. The volume concentrates on reviewing the ongoing research attempting to identify novel treatments for the cognitive deficits and negative symptoms of schizophrenia, which are not treated adequately by current antipsychotic medications.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The target audience … is primarily researchers in the field of psychopharmacology of psychosis as well as interested psychiatrists and psychologists. … This book will provide readers with the current research issues in the psychopharmacology of schizophrenia from a ‘one disease’ perspective.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
