Studies regarding neurotransmitters

Recommended Posts

I am writing my extended essay and I am looking for studies regarding neurotransmitters in people with schizophrenia. I can find that studies have been made but I am not sure if thats enough or if I need a specific name? Help?

You definitely need specific studies with the authors' names so you can cite the study in APA format. I remember one study of neurotransmitters with schizophrenics and it's located here with a link to the pdf of the original study (scroll down till you see Laruelle). I suggest you use Google Scholar to search for additional studies that cite the Laruelle study. Click here and its the first study then click Cited by 648. Once you find the papers I can try and get the originals for you. You can also look for books that might have information on neurotransmitters and schizophrenia, one book that might help is Physiology of Behavior by Carlson but there may be books more specific to pathologies like schizophrenia.

The key neurotransmitters seem to be glutamate and dopamine. Don't forget to put lots of evaluation in there!

Anything else just ask :).
