Abstract

Current drugs for schizophrenia only work in 30% of patients. To develop better therapies, we must understand the changes in the brains of people with the disorder. This research will explore a chemical system in the brain that is changed in schizophrenia and begin to investigate whether counteracting these changes are therapeutically beneficial.
