Hundreds of genes are known to contribute to the risk of schizophrenia, but the neurobiological
mechanisms leading to the onset of the illness are poorly known.
They discuss current clinical trials for medications and highlight future directions for neurobiological
targets that have potential for treating individuals with this dual diagnosis.
More functional imaging studies and electrophysiological studies are needed to test whether there are neurobiological
differences thought to exist between these subtypes.
The genetic phenomenon of the same genes manifesting in different clinical phenotypes is called pleiotropy, and is consistent with shared neurobiological
The empirical evidence from neuroscience, and the other sciences, is far from entailing that all conscious states are caused 100% by neurobiological
processes in the brain.
of Minnesota) bring together 17 chapters that consider bipolar disorder from a developmental psychopathology perspective across the lifespan that integrates genetic, neurobiological
, cognitive, and psychosocial perspectives.
Another is the enduring and profoundly mysterious gulf between observable neurobiological
events and, for example, the experience of having thoughts inserted into one's brain, an enigma as much for philosophers as for psychiatrists.
Called the "Neurobiological
Circuits of Addiction: Significance for Psychiatric Practice," the sessions will highlight a wide range of topics from the brain mechanisms driving addictive behavior to important clinical issues such as treating smoking in patients with comorbid psychiatric disorders, as well as the unique problems facing military personnel and their families.
Erickson, PhD, acknowledges that today's conference attendees in the addiction professional community respond more positively to neurobiological
clues about addiction than they did a generation ago, when his lectures tended to provoke arguments.
Following an overview of the principal frameworks for clinical practice--including systems theory, behavioral and cognitive theories, psychoanalytic theory, and neurobiological
theory--the book presents the major social crises, problems, and new populations the social work clinician encounters each day.
investigations have paralleled etiologic studies of OCD and have demonstrated both similarities and differences between these two disorders.
Scientists at McLean Hospital and professors at Harvard Medical School have explored the effects of Cognizin citicoline, from Kyowa Hakko, on the neurobiological
systems involved in appetite and eating behavior regulation.
