Schizophrenia; current science and clinical practice.


Schizophrenia; current science and clinical practice.

Ed. by Wolfgang Gaebel.



254 pages




Editor Gaebel (psychiatry, Heinrich Heine U.-Dusseldorf, Germany) gathers international contributors to survey the latest thinking on the diagnosis, neurobiological foundations, and management of schizophrenia, which is based on findings obtained with techniques such as MRI and genetic and network analyses. The book begins with a critical discussion of diagnostic classification and the revision of two major international systems, then covers the pathophysiology of schizophrenia, neurocognition and social cognition as predictors for functional outcome in schizophrenia, and the genetics of schizophrenia. Later chapters examine early recognition and prevention, pharmacological treatment, cognitive-behavioral interventions, and management, rehabilitation, and stigma. The book will be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, neuropharmacologists, researchers in psychiatry and psychopharmacology, and clinical and behavioral neuroscientists.
