Novel Antischizophrenia Treatments (Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology)


Geyer, Mark A., Gross, Gerhard


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.

Key features

  • Provide up-to-date information on approaches to the discovery of treatments for cognitive deficits in schizophrenia
  • Provide information on promising new targets for therapeutics in the treatment of schizophrenia
  • Describe potential use of adjunctive co-treatments for use together with traditional antipsychotics
