PSRY 5029 - Molecular Neurobiology of Treatment Outcome of Schizophrenia

This elective will explore the molecular neurobiological markers of antipsychotic actions on the brain in rats. The common molecular markers will be studied in body fluids of early psychotic and chronic schizophrenic patients before and after treatment with antipsychotics. The association of these molecular substrates to several key symptomatic dimensions will be examined in patients to understand their clinical applicability. The students will be trained in all aspects of laboratory analysis as well as to watch the clinical assessment of patients. This elective includes two weekly contact hours of seminar.
