Psychobiological Studies of Mania
This paper will review some clinical and biological aspects of mania including symptoms, diagnosis and treatments. Special emphasis will be placed on data which may be relevant to understanding mania such as receptor studies, effects of lithium on behavioral supersensitivity, incidence of tardive dyskinesia in mania, and timedependent changes in vulnerability to the switch. Finally, some newer treatments for mania will be briefly discussed.
