  • Title:¬†Super sensitivity psychosis after antipsychotic drug discontinuation in patients remitted after a first episode psychosis.

    Project: Discontinuation of antipsychotic medication after use of these drugs for several months may render patients with psychosis especially vulnerable to relapse. A potential mechanism behind this vulnerability could be increased density of postsynaptic dopamine D2 receptors in the striatum. This is investigated using the tracer [11C] Raclopride and Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
