Epigenetics & Psychiatry

Psychiatric disorders are known to be multifaceted in their pathophysiology. Because epigenetic changes can be sensitive to the environment, inherited, and reversible, the study of epigenetics in psychiatric disease is a logical way to understand the natural history of the disease as well as to develop therapeutics. Find the latest research on epigenetics and psychiatry here.

Morphine Dependence

Morphine is an opiate used for severe pain relief. Given that tolerance to it develops rapidly, morphine has the potential to be highly addictive. Here is the latest research on Morphine dependence.


Neuropsychiatry is an emerging field at the intersection of neurology and psychiatry, driven by the unprecedented advances in neuroscience. Here are the latest discoveries in neuropsychiatry.


is the scientific study of the effects drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. It is distinguished from neuropsychopharmacology, which emphasizes the correlation between drug-induced changes in the functioning of cells in the nervous system and changes in consciousness and behavior.
