Chair: Prof Peter Jones

Abstract One of schizophrenia’s core symptoms, negative symptoms have been some how neglected in research over half of a century. But this is quickly changing with the advent of novel scales and theoretical models and promising treatments in the pipeline. In his talk, we will present the historical and conceptual issues with the term to then introduce our work in the characterisation and pathophysiology of negative symptom.

Biography Emilio Fernandez-Egea is consultant psychiatrist and associate lecturer at the Department of Psychiatry and associate editor for the BJPsych. He recently set up the CPFT Cambridge Psychosis Centre, a second opinion unit for people with schizophrenia, in which patients with negative symptoms of schizophrenia are studied and treated, among others.
