The CINP World Congress will take place in Vancouver from June 22-26. Immediately prior to the conference we will be holding a workshop “Schizophrenia Progression: From Neuropathology to Neuroremediation”. During this event speakers will discuss brain changes through the course of the illness as well as factors that could influence brain changes such as medications, stress, inflammation and exercise.
