Session Summary

New treatments for schizophrenia are just around the corner and their pharmacological properties bring into question the etiology of schizophrenia. Novel antipsychotic therapies without D2 receptor activity have significant implications for care, and if approved, will represent the "third-generation" of antipsychotic medications. Join Dr. Jonathan Meyer for a compelling symposium that will cover these recent advancements in our understanding of schizophrenia and how novel pharmacotherapies that act upstream of the dopamine receptors may prove effective at addressing current treatment limitations.
