Abstract

Diagnostic systems, phenotype models, and theories of etiology incorporate propositions on the underlying nature of psychosis and schizophrenia phenotypes. These propositions, whether implicit or explicit, are that the distributions of the phenotypes, or the phenotype experiences themse...read more

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Psychotic Affective Disorders

Psychotic affective disorders are a set of psychiatric mood disorders that include depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia with psychotic behavior. This is a broad class of psychiatric illnesses and employs a complex individualized treatment plan. Here is the latest research on psychotic affective disorders.

Neuronal Guidance: Evolution

This feed focuses on mechanisms that underlie the evolution of axonal guidance pathways, neurogenesis, and synaptic connectivity. Here is the latest research.

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Hippocampal Neurogenesis

Hippocampal neurogenesis is the formation of new neurons from neural progenitor cells in the dentate gyrus. This is important for behavioural responses, learning and memory. Here is the latest research on hippocampal neurogenesis.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Psychoactive Drugs

Psychoactive drugs are psychotherapeutic drugs used to modify emotions and behavior in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses. Here is the latest research on psychoactive drugs and the pathways they modulate.
