Animal Models for Schizophrenia Research, developed by James Koenig and colleagues.
This database 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 this database is to serve as an unbiased, centralized, publicly available and regularly updated 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. If your model is not included, or you would like to add new models or amend those listed here, please contact us.
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
