Abstract:
Atypical antipsychotic-induced weight gain is a significant impediment in the treatment of schizophrenia. The primary aim of the empirical work presented in this thesis, is to develop a rodent model of atypical antipsychotic-induced hyperphagia and weight gain, in order to investigate the behavioural and neurochemical mechanisms underlying these drug-ettects on humans.
