The neurobiology of psychosis and schizophrenia

24 November 2021

Schizophrenia affects 21 million individuals and is a major cause of disability worldwide. The neurobiology of psychotic disorders and schizophrenia remains one of the primary enigmas of mental health research. Various proposals have been advanced including dopaminergic and glutamatergic hypotheses, aberrant salience, the neurodevelopmental hypothesis, synaptic pruning and aberrant salience. More recently the role of neuroinflammation in schizophrenia has been advanced.

These understandings are supported by various lines of evidence, however we are yet to come to a unified understanding of psychosis and schizophrenia. This seminar, held by the Institute of Mental Health, at the University of Nottingham will bring together key leaders in the field to discuss the current state of the art understanding and what remains to be discovered.

This seminar will be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists and researchers in the field.
