For decades, scientists have looked for correlates for schizophrenia in the brain. The ultimate hope is that clinicians can use the biological information of a given individual to prevent illness onset and progression, develop new treatments, or use personalise already available treatments.

In this video, Dr. Jose M. Rubio share his insights on why we need biomarkers for Schizophrenia, why we don’t already have biomarkers for Schizophrenia, what’s necessary to bring biomarkers to the clinic and how today’s neuroimaging tools have significantly progressed the development of clinically applicable biomarkers.

Brain Circuitry and Emotional Lability

Emotional lability describes episodes of involuntary and uncontrollable crying and/or laughing, outside of socially appropriate circumstances and when it is incongruent with the patient’s emotional state.
