Neuropsychopharmacology across Brain Diseases 

Psychiatry and neurology are two specialisms that focus on disorders of the same organ system – the brain – but from two different perspectives, which sometimes seem to be in conflict or opposition. In order to work towards a more integrated approach where each disciplines understandings could help to inform the other, the ECNP hosted a special scientific meeting with experts across a range of different disease states and including preclinical scientists as well. The report sums up the key elements of this meeting and looks to how the disciplines may work together better in future to the benefit of science and patients.
