Book Description

The first ebook to offer a comprehensive review of the new clinical, theoretical, and basic research framework that considers psychotic illness as a group of dimensional representations of psychopathology rather than as traditional distinct categorical diagnoses, Modeling the Psychopathological Dimensions of Schizophrenia: From Molecules to Behavior: From Molecules to Behavior (PDF) is the first ebook of its kind. It can be downloaded for free here. Psychotic sickness, which is exemplified by schizophrenia, is a debilitating condition that is increasingly recognized as a disorder of abnormal brain development and dysconnectivity. Psychosis is characterized by episodes of disorganized thinking and delusions. Its complicated cause can be traced back to both genetic and environmental influences, as well as the interaction that exists between the two.

This e-book, titled “Modeling the Psychopathological Dimensions of Schizophrenia,” provides a description of the current understanding of the clinical and pathological features of schizophrenia. The author places a particular emphasis on the evolving conceptualization of schizophrenia and related diagnostic categories of psychotic illness as combinations of dimensional abnormalities. It provides an overview of modern strategies for generating cellular and whole animal models of schizophrenia as well as detailed reviews of the specific experimental preparations and paradigms aimed at developmental; molecular; and brain-network mechanisms that are the underlying aspects of abnormal behavior and various aspects of schizophrenia. Additionally, it examines the specific experimental preparations and paradigms that have been used to investigate these mechanisms.

This ground-breaking ebook provides an authoritative overview of the translational impact of emerging clinical insights on basic research approaches in schizophrenia. It will help the reader advance their understanding of the five major dimensions of psychopathology in schizophrenia and related psychoses, as well as resolve the genetic and neurobiological underpinnings of these dimensions.


  • Authored and edited by some of the most eminent scientists working in the fields of schizophrenia and associated psychoses
  • Contains a number of evaluations of recently accessible cellular models for the investigation of signaling pathways and gene expression; these reviews supplement behavioral neuroscience research in schizophrenia.
  • Includes assessments of animal models that encapsulate the most recent insights into the etiology and pathogenetic mechanisms of schizophrenia, with an emphasis on the translational potential of these models. [Includes] [Includes] [Includes] [Includes] [Includes] [Includes]
