Social defeat: risk factor for schizophrenia?
Research output: Contribution to journal › Debate/Note/Editorial
The hypothesis that chronic and long-term experience of 'social defeat' may increase the risk for schizophrenia is proposed. This increased risk may result from sensitisation of the mesolimbic dopamine system and/or increased baseline activity of this system. Data supporting the social defeat hypothesis are presented.
