"What is Psychosis?"
Dr. Heckers will review his 30+ years of studying the brain to understand psychosis. He will review the classification of psychotic disorders, explore one neural model (hippocampal hyperactivity), and weave in clinical vignettes of persons with psychotic disorders.
This activity is designed to help attendees:
- describe the history of studying and treating persons with psychosis
- explain some features of psychosis with abnormalities in the brain
- appreciate the difficulty of making progress in psychosis research
