Targets and Emerging Therapies for Schizophrenia Hardback

Edited by Jeffrey S. Albert, Michael W. Wood


  • Information


This book provides a comprehensive resource for neuro-drug discovery and molecular targets for schizophrenia, from current therapies to evolving targets.

The coverage begins with a discussion of prevalence and etiology, and an introduction to current therapies (which treat only certain, "positive" symptoms), as well as the rise of interest in addressing untreated symptoms.

Subsequent sections focus on each major mechanistic hypothesis, beginning with a chapter that serves as an introduction and overview.

Within these models, chapters focus on each major pharmacological target and address both the neurobiological and chemical aspects of that target.
