Effectiveness of antipsychotic drugs in first-episode schizophrenia and schizophreniform disorder: an open randomised clinical trial
TLDR
This pragmatic trial suggests that clinically meaningful antipsychotic treatment of first-episode of schizophrenia is achievable, for at least 1 year, but it cannot conclude that second-generation drugs are more efficacious than is haloperidol, since discontinuation rates are not necessarily consistent with symptomatic improvement. Expand
Social cognition in schizophrenia: an NIMH workshop on definitions, assessment, and research opportunities.
TLDR
A consensus-building meeting on social cognition in schizophrenia was held at the National Institute of Mental Health in March 2006, and agreement was reached on several points, including definitions of terms, the significance of social cognition for schizophrenia research, and suggestions for future research directions. Expand
Prediction of Psychosis by Mismatch Negativity
TLDR
The findings demonstrate the duration MMN is significantly reduced in at-risk subjects converting to first-episode psychosis compared with nonconverters and may contribute not only to the prediction of conversion but also to a more individualized risk estimation and thus risk-adapted prevention. Expand
Subcortical correlates of craving in recently abstinent alcoholic patients.
TLDR
This investigation points to state-dependent neurobiological correlates of cue-induced craving in alcoholic patients and suggests that these correlates can be influenced by therapeutic interventions. Expand
Remediation of impairments in facial affect recognition in schizophrenia: Efficacy and specificity of a new training program
TLDR
Remediation of disturbed facial affect recognition in schizophrenia patients is possible, but not achievable with a traditional cognitive rehabilitation program such as the CRT, and functional specialized remediation programs such as a newly developed TAR are a more suitable option. Expand
Definition and description of schizophrenia in the DSM-5
TLDR
The essence of the broad DSM-IV definition of schizophrenia is retained and changes in its definition should improve diagnosis and characterization of individuals with schizophrenia and facilitate measurement-based treatment and concurrently provide a more useful platform for research that will elucidate its nature. Expand
Facial expression and emotional face recognition in schizophrenia and depression
TLDR
It was found that schizophrenics and depressives are characterized by different quantitative, qualitative, and temporal patterns of affect-related dysfunctions, and differences in patterns of Affect-related behavioral deficits may reflect Dysfunctions in different underlying psychobiological systems. Expand
Neurophysiological correlates of the recognition of facial expressions of emotion as revealed by magnetoencephalography.
TLDR
It is found that faces evoked different MEG responses as a function of task demands, i.e., the activations recorded during facial emotion recognition were different from those recorded during simple face recognition in the control task. Expand
A conceptual framework for the revision of the ICD‐10 classification of mental and behavioural disorders
TLDR
The usefulness of the classification in helping WHO member countries, particularly low- and middle-income countries, to reduce the disease burden associated with mental disorders is among the highest priorities for the revision. Expand
Twelve‐month prevalence, comorbidity and correlates of mental disorders in Germany: the Mental Health Module of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Adults (DEGS1‐MH)
TLDR
It is confirmed that almost one third of the general population is affected by mental disorders and inform about subsets in the population who are particularly affected. Expand
