Antipsychotic drugs are a class of medication primarily used to manage psychosis (including delusions, hallucinations, paranoia or disordered thought), principally in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Discover the latest research on antipsychotic drugs here

Antipsychotic-Induced Weight Gain

Antipsychotic-induced weight gain (aiwg) is a common adverse effect of this treatment, particularly with second-generation antipsychotics, and it is a major health problem around the world. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to AIWG.


Catatonia is a psychomotor syndrome with motor and behavioral symptoms, and can occur in both patients with or without psychiatric illness. Discover the latest research on Catatonia here.

Catatonic Schizophrenia

Catatonia is a psychomotor symptom in which patients present with stupor, although catatonic excitement may also present at the other end of the spectrum. Catatonia has been historically associated with schizophrenia although it is also associated with other neuropsychiatric disorders. Find the latest research on catatonic schizophrenia here.

Comorbidity In Psychiatry

There is ongoing debate regarding the handling of comorbidity in psychiatric disorders, and determining whether the issue lies with the categorizations of diagnostic conventions or if there is an underlying pathology that links multiple diseases. Understanding how to give the proper diagnosis/diagnoses would allow for optimal management of the patient. Find the latest research on comorbidity in psychiatry here.

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.

Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry includes the relationship between psychiatric abnormalities and legal violations and crimes. Discover the latest research on forensic psychiatry here.

Inflammation and Immunity in Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a complex mental disease caused by a combination of serial alterations in genetic and environmental factors, including inflammation and immunity. Here is the latest research.


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.

Paranoid Disorders

Paranoid disorders are psychiatric disorders with the suspicion and belief that others are plotting against them, leading to mistrust of others. These symptoms of paranoia can be seen in other psychiatric disorders including dementia and schizophrenia. Here is the latest research on paranoid disorders.
