We held a lively discussion on September 12, 2006, led by Ofer Agid and Shitij Kapur of the University of Toronto, with Patricio O'Donnell, of the University of Maryland, Baltimore, joining us as moderator. As introduced in a series of papers over the past few years, Agid, Kapur, and their colleagues in Toronto believe that antipsychotic drugs begin to work clinically within days of treatment onset.
The paper under discussion: Tochigi M, Otowa T, Suga M, Rogers M, Minato T, Yamasue H, Kasai K, Kato N, Sasaki T. No evidence for an association between the BDNF Val66Met polymorphism and schizophrenia or personality traits. Schizophr Res. 2006 Jul 17; [Epub ahead of print]
