Question of the Day

I’m reminded on a daily basis how far we’ve come and yet how far we need to go to effectively treat schizophrenia and related disorders. I feel daily tremendous gratitude for the newer medications and have seen first-hand how miraculous the recoveries can be. On the other hand, I’m also a witness to the devastation effected by negative symptoms and cognitive deficits for which we have nothing, yet, of lasting benefit. I remain hopeful that technologies my lab and others have developed will point the way towards more comprehensive treatment strategies for schizophrenia and similar disorders.
