Schizophrenia remains an important challenge to psychiatry, with its causes and underlying brain mechanisms yet to be fully revealed. Currently available treatments are neither universally effective nor without unwanted effects. These aspects, together with the high prevalence of schizophrenia, its often debilitating nature, and the associated family and social burden, make this mental disorder one of the most complex public health issues of our times.

The purpose of the Advances in Schizophrenia Research series is to provide comprehensive periodic reviews of the wide range of research studies carried out around the world, with the dual purpose of solving the schizophrenia puzzle, and providing clues to new forms of treatment and prevention for this disorder. A special feature of the series is its broad scope, virtually encompassing all fields of schizophrenia research: epidemiology and risk factors; psychopathology; diagnostic boundaries; cognition; outcome and prognosis; pathophysiology; genetics; pharmacological and psychological forms of treatment and rehabilitation; community care; and stigmatization.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the reviews: "The book is a comprehensive update of the recent developments in schizophrenia research ... . book represents the state of affairs in schizophrenia research. ... The target audience includes `professionals in clinical psychology, psychiatry, neuropsychology, and other mental health workers.' ... This book will provide readers with the current research findings in schizophrenia from the `one diseasers' (analogous to the flat earthers!). However, researchers in schizophrenia will find it a useful reference." (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody's Review Service, May, 2010)
