Abstract
This project will provide unprecedented neurophysiological data from the VTA in patients with schizophrenia, furthering our understanding of the pathophysiology of this disease, and provide direct validation for theoretical and animal models of DA neuron dysfunction in schizophrenia. Understanding how VTA-DBS improves cognitive function will provide important insights into dopamine?s role in cognition, and be of direct benefit to the patients undergoing this novel treatment.
