Three ways you can design better drug trials for schizophrenia therapeutics

To date, no effective drugs have been developed to address cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia. Here we will highlight the three main methodological challenges which may be contributing to these high failure rates, and propose potential practical solutions to these problems.
