A LISTSERV discussion group for schizophrenia research was started in
December, 1993, and now has about 120 members.  I've attached the NEW-LIST
announcement below for those who might be interested.

  SCHIZ-L:  CLINICAL AND BASIC SCIENCE RESEARCH IN SCHIZOPHRENIA

SCHIZ-L is an unmoderated discussion list devoted to schizophrenia
research.  The objective of the list is to provide a forum for
communications among researchers and others interested in this mental
illness.  It is hoped that this forum will facilitate discussion of both
published and unpublished findings and ideas, foster potential
collaborations between investigators, and develop into an information
resource for those in this field.  

The success of any group depends on having a "critical mass" of
participants.  It is hoped that this list will attain that goal within its
first 3-6 months (by July, 1994).  List members are encouraged to inform
others of its existence and to participate freely.  The guidelines are
pretty simple: 

  Topics should relate to basic science and/or clinical
  science as it applies to schizophrenia, or to items that might
  be of interest to those in this field.  These might include
  questions, comments, or ideas about: 

     * epidemiology
     * phenomenology/psychopathology (eg, hallucinations,
         suicide, negative symptoms, rating scales, etc)
     * psychopharmacology
     * structural imaging (eg, CT, MRI, MEG, etc)
     * functional imaging (eg, fMRI, PET, SPECT, CEEG, etc)
     * biochemical/neurochemical studies
     * neuroanatomy/neuropathology
     * postmortem studies (eg, methods, acquisitions, identifi-
         cation and announcements of available resources, etc)
     * histological methodologies (eg, autoradiography, immuno-
         cytochemistry, immunofluorescence, in situ hybridi-
         zation, stereology, etc)
     * neurodevelopment
     * neuropsychological assessments
     * comments on journal articles
     * data analysis
     * use of computer resources (eg, software programs, etc)
     * Internet resources (eg, How do I do this?, Where do I
         find that?, etc)
     * conferences, meetings
     * you name it.  

This is an unmoderated group, which means it is up to the list members to
steer topics in the direction of the group's needs.  The list owner (Steve
Daviss <sdaviss at cosy.ab.umd.edu>) will be responsible for maintaining the
list, the archives, fielding administrative questions, and making sure the
list remains active.  Your comments and questions are welcome.
