Schizophrenia Treatment

The New Facets

Schizophrenia treatment has many facets. This book begins with the glutamatergic and GABAergic hypofunctioning contribute to the schizophrenic symptoms and their current targeted therapeutics. The genetic, epigenetic, and immune etiologies of schizophrenia and their potential targeted therapeutics as approached in this book are interesting.

Advances in schizophrenia treatment followed, including transcranial magnetic stimulation and special sport program, are presented at the book's end.
