1. Prognostic Factors in First-Episode Schizophrenia : Five-year Outcome of Symptoms, Function and Obesity
Sammanfattning : Our knowledge of prognostic factors and optimal treatment organisation in schizophrenia is incomplete. The disparity of outcome measures used has been a major obstacle for research. Increasing evidence has shown that schizophrenia is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality, development of obesity and autonomic nervous system imbalance. LÄS MER
2. Negative symptoms, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and heart rate variability in schizophrenia and depression
Sammanfattning : Negative symptoms comprise anhedonia, avolition, and blunted affect. Although first described in schizophrenia, these symptoms share phenomenology with the depressive state. Pharmacological treatment has not been successful in reducing negative symptoms. LÄS MER
3. The effect of intermittent theta-burst stimulation over the dorsomedial prefrontal cortext on brain activity in depression
Sammanfattning : Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation is an emerging alternative for treatment-resistant depression, with ongoing developments in stimulation protocols and treatment targets. As such, intermittent theta-burst stimulation (iTBS) delivered over the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC) has shown promise, however establishing a need for neuroimaging studies to further understand the treatment mechanisms.

Sammanfattning : This thesis offers a broad approach in elucidating biological risk factors, as well as psychological and social functioning in schizophrenia. The aims are as follows: (I) investigate the association between birth characteristics and schizophrenia, (II) study the association between levels of neurotransmitter neuropeptide Y (NPY) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), social function and longitudinal outcome in schizophrenia, (III) compare social functioning of patients with schizophrenia with their biological siblings and (IV) explore how siblings to patients with schizophrenia perceive the sibling relationship and their role.
