G. 1). The newer ‘atypical’ antipsychotics are mostly in different chemical classes, although they may share pharmacological characteristics. NEUROCHEMISTRY OF SCHIZOPHRENIA AND MECHANISMS OF ACTION OF ANTIPSYCHOTICS Dopamine The observation from the early use of chlorpromazine that clinical improvement was often accompanied by a parkinsonism-like syndrome led ©2002 CRC Press LLC to a focus on dopaminergic mechanisms of action for antipsychotics. In 1963 Carlsson and Lindqvist1 reported that antipsychotics increased turnover of brain dopamine, and suggested that this was in response to a functional ‘blockade’ of the dopaminergic system.

Blockade of D2 receptors here produces some of the antipsychotic effects of antipsychotics, but high levels of blockade (> 80%) produce parkinsonian side-effects. Blockade of D2 receptors in the tuberoinfundibular pathway increases plasma prolactin. It is thought that it is the blockade of D2 and D2-like receptors in the mesolimbic and mesocortical tracts that underlies the primary antipsychotic effects of all currently available antipsychotics dopaminergic innervation supplies fibers to the medial surface of the frontal lobes and to the parahippocampus and cingulate cortex, the latter two being part of the limbic system.

This study looked at patients with schizophrenia who were also experiencing passivity phenomena (delusions of alien control) during a voluntary movement task. Hyperactivity is seen in these patients compared with normal controls (A), compared with other schizophrenic patients (B and C), and with themselves as their symptoms resolve (D and E). In each case, greater activation is seen in the right inferior parietal lobule (IPL), and at loci within the cingulate gyrus (CG).
