Cannabis Schizophrenia and Reward: Self-Medication and Agonist Treatment?

Substance use disorders are strikingly common in patients with schizophrenia and contribute to its morbidity and cost to society. We have proposed a neurobiological formulation suggesting that cannabis and other substance use in these patients may ameliorate a dysfunction in the brain reward circuit(thus serving a "self-medication" function), while also ...

Ketamine as an Adjunctive Therapy for Major Depression

Pragmatic, randomised, controlled, parallel-group, pilot trial. Trial participants will be patients admitted to St Patrick's University Hospital for treatment of a depressive episode. The investigators aim to recruit up to 20 participants who will be eligible for this study and randomly allocate 10 patients to each group. The participants will ...

Retrain Your Brain in Children/Adolescents With Bipolar Disorder: A Pilot Study

Prior studies have shown that "computer assisted cognitive remediation"--meaning using computer "games" to build up a skill that has been shown to be impaired in a specific disorder--can result in improvement in psychiatric illnesses--including schizophrenia. This will be the first National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)-funded study to use this ...

Role of Anti-Inflammatory Agents in Patients With Schizophrenia

There is some evidence that anti-inflammatory treatment may have beneficial effects in schizophrenia and major depression. Cox-2 inhibitors have been tested in preliminary clinical trials for schizophrenia and depression, showing favourable effects compared to placebo (Muller and Schwarz et al 2009). Statins were introduced as cholesterol-lowering agents but have found ...

Recently, increased understanding of complex interactions between inflammation and the brain in other chronic diseases has better informed this relationship in schizophrenia. Several trials have found that treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ...

NMDA Receptor Antagonist Nitrous Oxide Targets Affective Brain Circuits

Most clinical major depression responds to standard treatments (medication and psychotherapy); however, a significant subset of depressed patients (15-20%) do not respond to these treatments and are referred to as treatment-resistant major depression (TRMD). New treatments for TRMD are needed, and one promising line of research are drugs known as ...
