Abstract:
Schizophrenia Is a severe and disabling brain disorder, affecting around 1% of the population, with onset usually between the ages of 18 and 25 years old. Current knowledge indicates several neurotransmitter systems, including glutamate, dopamine, serotonin and GABA, are involved in schizophrenia, but {he exact roles each play are as yet unknown. This thesis aimed to use pharmaco magnetic resonance Imaging (phMRI), a combination of functional MRI (fMRI) and pharmacological challenge to investigate the role of glutamate and the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor in schizophrenia.
