A Beautiful Mind: John Nash, Schizophrenia, Game Theory and Recovery from Schizophrenia With and Without Medication

This webinar will discuss the possible role of prodromal schizophrenia in shaping the seminal contributions of the late John Nash to game theory and how his son’s struggle with schizophrenia motivated Nash to seek and achieve partial functional recovery, while not taking antipsychotic medication. The presentation will also address novel medications for schizophrenia and current pharmacogenetics research to guide choice of medications which could enable better outcomes in schizophrenia, and recovery from chronic severe psychosis and cognitive impairment in an exceptional patient who challenges current widely held beliefs about the mood disorder-schizophrenia spectrum.
