Social defeat: risk factor for schizophrenia?

Selten, JP and Cantor-Graae, Elizabeth LU (2005) In British Journal of Psychiatry 187. p.101-102
Abstract
The hypothesis that chronic and long-term experience of 'social defeat' may increase the risk for schizophrenia is proposed. This increased risk may result from sensitisation of the mesolimbic dopamine system and/or increased baseline activity of this system. Data supporting the social defeat hypothesis are presented.
