Description

Is definitive understanding of schizophrenia as a brain disease just around the corner? This book synthesizes twenty years of research into diverse fields such as the symptoms, biology, and neurochemistry of schizophrenia, exploring theories of the disease and possibilities for future research. In fact, it seems that schizophrenia patients differ from healthy people more in their cognition than in their biology, an understanding of which will revolutionize both neuroscience and psychiatry.show more

Review quote

"In Search of Madness is a wonderful book. Not only is it comprehensive and integrative, but Heinrichs also provides the reader with clear and critical argumentation that has been greatly needed. It is likely to provide passionate reading for students of schizophrenia and for those interested in scientific and intellectual challenges." * Psychological Medicine, 32 *show more
