Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Following Recent‐Onset Psychosis An Unrecognized Postpsychotic Syndrome
Clinical experience with psychotic patients early in the course of their illness suggested that symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may not be uncommon after recovery from an acute psychotic episode, and the prevalence of PTSD was found to be 46% at 4 months and 35% at 11 months.

Impairment of olfactory identification is a premorbid marker of transition to schizophrenia, but it is not predictive of psychotic illness more generally. Expand
World Psychiatric Association Pharmacopsychiatry Section statement on comparative effectiveness of antipsychotics in the treatment of schizophrenia
There were substantial differences among both first- and second- generation antipsychotic agents with regard to their propensity to cause extrapyramidal, metabolic and other adverse effects; second-generation agents have a lower liability to cause acute extrapYramidal symptoms and tardive dyskinesia along with a tendency to cause greater metabolic side-effects than first-generationagents.

A longitudinal study of hippocampal volume in first episode psychosis and chronic schizophrenia
The negative findings for the hippocampus and temporal lobes may mean that the abnormalities in these regions are stable features of schizophrenia, or the period before the onset of frank psychotic symptoms may be the point of greatest risk for progressive change. Expand
Multiple-family group treatment for English- and Vietnamese-speaking families living with schizophrenia.
Relapse rates immediately after treatment were significantly lower for the multiple-family group than for the control group, and relapse rates were also lower during the follow-up period, and vocational outcomes also improved. Expand

It is identified that less of the hippocampus was distributed in its posterior two-thirds in patients with chronic schizophrenia, and specifically in the region just posterior to the hippocampal head. Expand
The Binding of Both [3H]Nemonapride and [3H]Raclopride Is Increased in Schizophrenia
A postmortem autoradiographic study to compare the density of dopamine D4-like sites in caudate putamen section from age-matched schizophrenia and control populations revealed that in the schizophrenia population there was a significant increase in the binding of both [3H]nemonapride and [ 3H]raclopride.

A case study in the globalization of medical education: assisting overseas-born students at the University of Melbourne
The paper suggests the model of international student support developed by the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne may have potential relevance for other universities, in the context of the accelerating globalization of medical education. Expand
