Overview

For many years, schizophrenia was considered to be a deep and profound mystery. It was generally viewed as unknown and unknowable—beyond the reach of science.
In the past ten years, major developments in scientific research have drastically changed the way schizophrenia is viewed. Neuroscience, in particular, has enabled researchers to frame different questions when investigating this illness and we are now coming to a deeper understanding of it.
In this much-needed book, Michael Green, an expert in the neurocognition of schizophrenia, presents an integrated overview of schizophrenia covering a wide range of topics in lively, understandable prose. He outlines a neurodevelopmental model of schizophrenia, discusses neurocognitive indicators of genetic vulnerability, the introduction of a new generation of medications, recent findings from brain imaging, cognitive remediation, and the determinants of functional outcome. He presents a modern view of schizophrenia based on neuroscience that goes far beyond the symptoms of the illness.Schizophrenia Revealed gives the reader an important overview of the most recent developments in our understanding of schizophrenia. It will be of interest to clinicians who are trying to understand the neurocognitive constraints acting on their patients, practitioners in psychology, psychiatry, social work, and nursing, as well as family members and students who want to know how our view of this disease has changed in recent years.

    An excellent book

    As a nurse, and mother of a young man who has been stricken with psychotic behavior in his prime, I highly recommend this book. This book is easy to read and highly informative. My only regret is that I am unable to take my son to UCLA where such wonderful breakthroughs in research are occuring. If you or someone you love is experiencing psychotic behavior, please read this book.
