Animal Models for Schizophrenia Research

Updated 15 August 2016

Important Notice: This information is designed to be used by researchers, and does not necessarily reflect on symptoms or pathology in people with schizophrenia. Neither Schizophrenia Research Forum nor the author(s) of these data will respond to specific questions from the public about the information in this table.

Editor's Note: The last update to this table was made in 2014, and no future updates are currently planned. We are exploring possible solutions to recreating the old database, perhaps with a wider representation of phenotypes. If you have ideas, or would like to work with us on this project, please contact us.

View Tables: Animal Models for Schizophrenia Research, developed by James Koenig and colleagues.

This resource was developed by James Koenig (now at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) and his colleagues at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center (particularly Christina Wilson on this latest version). The overarching goal of the tables is to serve as an unbiased, centralized, and publicly available collection of animal research models that might be useful for researchers studying schizophrenia and related disorders. While we have made every possible effort to include all potentially useful models that have been published, there may be some models that have been inadvertently omitted. We have also made every possible effort to ensure that this information is correct at time of update. 

Schizophrenia Research Forum is much indebted to Jim Koenig and his colleagues for all the work they have put into developing this table.

This table is based on one originally created for the following article:

Carpenter WT, Koenig JI. The evolution of drug development in schizophrenia: past issues and future opportunities. Neuropsychopharmacology. 2008 Aug;33(9):2061-79. Epub 2007 Nov 28. Review. Abstract
