Schizophrenia: A severe emotional disorder of psychotic depth characteristically marked by a retreat from reality with delusion formation, HALLUCINATIONS, emotional disharmony, and regressive behavior.Schizophrenic Psychology: Study of mental processes and behavior of schizophrenics.Schizophrenia, Paranoid: A chronic form of schizophrenia characterized primarily by the presence of persecutory or grandiose delusions, often associated with hallucination.Antipsychotic Agents: Agents that control agitated psychotic behavior, alleviate acute psychotic states, reduce psychotic symptoms, and exert a quieting effect. They are used in SCHIZOPHRENIA; senile dementia; transient psychosis following surgery; or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; etc. These drugs are often referred to as neuroleptics alluding to the tendency to produce neurological side effects, but not all antipsychotics are likely to produce such effects. Many of these drugs may also be effective against nausea, emesis, and pruritus.Schizophrenia, Disorganized: A type of schizophrenia characterized by frequent incoherence; marked loosening of associations, or grossly disorganized behavior and flat or grossly inappropriate affect that does not meet the criteria for the catatonic type; associated features include extreme social withdrawal, grimacing, mannerisms, mirror gazing, inappropriate giggling, and other odd behavior. (Dorland, 27th ed)Schizophrenia, Childhood: An obsolete concept, historically used for childhood mental disorders thought to be a form of schizophrenia. It was in earlier versions of DSM but is now included within the broad concept of PERVASIVE DEVELOPMENT DISORDERS.Psychotic Disorders: Disorders in which there is a loss of ego boundaries or a gross impairment in reality testing with delusions or prominent hallucinations. (From DSM-IV, 1994)Schizophrenia, Catatonic: A type of schizophrenia characterized by abnormality of motor behavior which may involve particular forms of stupor, rigidity, excitement or inappropriate posture.Psychiatric Status Rating Scales: Standardized procedures utilizing rating scales or interview schedules carried out by health personnel for evaluating the degree of mental illness.Schizotypal Personality Disorder: A personality disorder in which there are oddities of thought (magical thinking, paranoid ideation, suspiciousness), perception (illusions, depersonalization), speech (digressive, vague, overelaborate), and behavior (inappropriate affect in social interactions, frequently social isolation) that are not severe enough to characterize schizophrenia.Cognition Disorders: Disturbances in mental processes related to learning, thinking, reasoning, and judgment.Schizophrenic Language: The artificial language of schizophrenic patients - neologisms (words of the patient's own making with new meanings).Neuropsychological Tests: Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.Bipolar Disorder: A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.Risperidone: A selective blocker of DOPAMINE D2 RECEPTORS and SEROTONIN 5-HT2 RECEPTORS that acts as an atypical antipsychotic agent. It has been shown to improve both positive and negative symptoms in the treatment of SCHIZOPHRENIA.Clozapine: A tricylic dibenzodiazepine, classified as an atypical antipsychotic agent. It binds several types of central nervous system receptors, and displays a unique pharmacological profile. Clozapine is a serotonin antagonist, with strong binding to 5-HT 2A/2C receptor subtype. It also displays strong affinity to several dopaminergic receptors, but shows only weak antagonism at the dopamine D2 receptor, a receptor commonly thought to modulate neuroleptic activity. Agranulocytosis is a major adverse effect associated with administration of this agent.Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale: A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses. (From Hersen, M. and Bellack, A.S., Dictionary of Behavioral Assessment Techniques, p. 87)Delusions: A false belief regarding the self or persons or objects outside the self that persists despite the facts, and is not considered tenable by one's associates.Hallucinations: Subjectively experienced sensations in the absence of an appropriate stimulus, but which are regarded by the individual as real. They may be of organic origin or associated with MENTAL DISORDERS.Prefrontal Cortex: The rostral part of the frontal lobe, bounded by the inferior precentral fissure in humans, which receives projection fibers from the MEDIODORSAL NUCLEUS OF THE THALAMUS. The prefrontal cortex receives afferent fibers from numerous structures of the DIENCEPHALON; MESENCEPHALON; and LIMBIC SYSTEM as well as cortical afferents of visual, auditory, and somatic origin.Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.Affective Disorders, Psychotic: Disorders in which the essential feature is a severe disturbance in mood (depression, anxiety, elation, and excitement) accompanied by psychotic symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, gross impairment in reality testing, etc.Sensory Gating: The ability of the BRAIN to suppress neuronal responses to external sensory inputs, such as auditory and visual stimuli. Sensory filtering (or gating) allows humans to block out irrelevant, meaningless, or redundant stimuli.Delirium, Dementia, Amnestic, Cognitive Disorders: Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Haloperidol: A phenyl-piperidinyl-butyrophenone that is used primarily to treat SCHIZOPHRENIA and other PSYCHOSES. It is also used in schizoaffective disorder, DELUSIONAL DISORDERS, ballism, and TOURETTE SYNDROME (a drug of choice) and occasionally as adjunctive therapy in INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY and the chorea of HUNTINGTON DISEASE. It is a potent antiemetic and is used in the treatment of intractable HICCUPS. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p279)Social Adjustment: Adaptation of the person to the social environment. Adjustment may take place by adapting the self to the environment or by changing the environment. (From Campbell, Psychiatric Dictionary, 1996)Case-Control Studies: Studies which start with the identification of persons with a disease of interest and a control (comparison, referent) group without the disease. The relationship of an attribute to the disease is examined by comparing diseased and non-diseased persons with regard to the frequency or levels of the attribute in each group.Genetic Predisposition to Disease: A latent susceptibility to disease at the genetic level, which may be activated under certain conditions.Endophenotypes: Measurable biological (physiological, biochemical, and anatomical features), behavioral (psychometric pattern) or cognitive markers that are found more often in individuals with a disease than in the general population. Because many endophenotypes are present before the disease onset and in individuals with heritable risk for disease such as unaffected family members, they can be used to help diagnose and search for causative genes.Brain Mapping: Imaging techniques used to colocalize sites of brain functions or physiological activity with brain structures.Analysis of Variance: A statistical technique that isolates and assesses the contributions of categorical independent variables to variation in the mean of a continuous dependent variable.Startle Reaction: A complex involuntary response to an unexpected strong stimulus usually auditory in nature.Benzodiazepines: A group of two-ring heterocyclic compounds consisting of a benzene ring fused to a diazepine ring.Frontal Lobe: The part of the cerebral hemisphere anterior to the central sulcus, and anterior and superior to the lateral sulcus.National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.): A component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH concerned with research, overall planning, promoting, and administering mental health programs and research.

It is produced by the American Psychiatric Association. (DSM-IV, page xxii)Cerebral Cortex: The thin layer of GRAY MATTER on the surface of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES that develops from the TELENCEPHALON and folds into gyri and sulchi. It reaches its highest development in humans and is responsible for intellectual faculties and higher mental functions.Perceptual Disorders: Cognitive disorders characterized by an impaired ability to perceive the nature of objects or concepts through use of the sense organs. These include spatial neglect syndromes, where an individual does not attend to visual, auditory, or sensory stimuli presented from one side of the body.Catechol O-Methyltransferase: Enzyme that catalyzes the movement of a methyl group from S-adenosylmethionone to a catechol or a catecholamine.Reality Testing: The individual's objective evaluation of the external world and the ability to differentiate adequately between it and the internal world; considered to be a primary ego function.Memory Disorders: Disturbances in registering an impression, in the retention of an acquired impression, or in the recall of an impression.

Phencyclidine is similar to KETAMINE in structure and in many of its effects. Like ketamine, it can produce a dissociative state. It exerts its pharmacological action through inhibition of NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE). As a drug of abuse, it is known as PCP and Angel Dust.Family: A social group consisting of parents or parent substitutes and children.Ego: The conscious portion of the personality structure which serves to mediate between the demands of the primitive instinctual drives, (the id), of internalized parental and social prohibitions or the conscience, (the superego), and of reality.Fluphenazine: A phenothiazine used in the treatment of PSYCHOSES.

It is derived from TYROSINE and is the precursor to NOREPINEPHRINE and EPINEPHRINE. Dopamine is a major transmitter in the extrapyramidal system of the brain, and important in regulating movement. A family of receptors (RECEPTORS, DOPAMINE) mediate its action.Personal Construct Theory: A psychological theory based on dimensions or categories used by a given person in describing or explaining the personality and behavior of others or of himself. The basic idea is that different people will use consistently different categories. The theory was formulated in the fifties by George Kelly. Two tests devised by him are the role construct repertory test and the repertory grid test. (From Stuart Sutherland, The International Dictionary of Psychology, 1989)Genotype: The genetic constitution of the individual, comprising the ALLELES present at each GENETIC LOCUS.Facial Expression: Observable changes of expression in the face in response to emotional stimuli.Mood Disorders: Those disorders that have a disturbance in mood as their predominant feature.Auditory Perceptual Disorders: Acquired or developmental cognitive disorders of AUDITORY PERCEPTION characterized by a reduced ability to perceive information contained in auditory stimuli despite intact auditory pathways.

P300 stands for a positive deflection in the event-related voltage potential at 300 millisecond poststimulus. Its amplitude increases with unpredictable, unlikely, or highly significant stimuli and thereby constitutes an index of mental activity. (From Campbell, Psychiatric Dictionary, 6th ed)Siblings: Persons or animals having at least one parent in common. (American College Dictionary, 3d ed)Verbal Learning: Learning to respond verbally to a verbal stimulus cue.Paranoid Disorders: Chronic mental disorders in which there has been an insidious development of a permanent and unshakeable delusional system (persecutory delusions or delusions of jealousy), accompanied by preservation of clear and orderly thinking. Emotional responses and behavior are consistent with the delusional state.Hippocampus: A curved elevation of GRAY MATTER extending the entire length of the floor of the TEMPORAL HORN of the LATERAL VENTRICLE (see also TEMPORAL LOBE). The hippocampus proper, subiculum, and DENTATE GYRUS constitute the hippocampal formation.

Muscles of the face, trunk, neck, and extremities are most commonly affected. Tardive dyskinesia refers to abnormal hyperkinetic movements of the muscles of the face, tongue, and neck associated with the use of neuroleptic agents (see ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENTS). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1199)Theory of Mind: The ability to attribute mental states (e.g., beliefs, desires, feelings, intentions, thoughts, etc.) to self and to others, allowing an individual to understand and infer behavior on the basis of the mental states. Difference or deficit in theory of mind is associated with ASPERGER SYNDROME; AUTISTIC DISORDER; and SCHIZOPHRENIA, etc.Neuregulin-1: A peptide factor originally identified by its ability to stimulate the phosphorylation the erbB-2 receptor (RECEPTOR, ERBB-2).

These consequences are observed later in the offspring after BIRTH.Hospitals, Psychiatric: Special hospitals which provide care to the mentally ill patient.Psychoanalytic Therapy: A form of psychiatric treatment, based on Freudian principles, which seeks to eliminate or diminish the undesirable effects of unconscious conflicts by making the patient aware of their existence, origin, and inappropriate expression in current emotions and behavior.Psychopathology: The study of significant causes and processes in the development of mental illness.Personality Development: Growth of habitual patterns of behavior in childhood and adolescence.Receptors, Dopamine: Cell-surface proteins that bind dopamine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells.Cognitive Therapy: A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.Chronic Disease: Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Basal Ganglia Diseases: Diseases of the BASAL GANGLIA including the PUTAMEN; GLOBUS PALLIDUS; claustrum; AMYGDALA; and CAUDATE NUCLEUS. DYSKINESIAS (most notably involuntary movements and alterations of the rate of movement) represent the primary clinical manifestations of these disorders. Common etiologies include CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS; NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES; and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.Genetic Association Studies: The analysis of a sequence such as a region of a chromosome, a haplotype, a gene, or an allele for its involvement in controlling the phenotype of a specific trait, metabolic pathway, or disease.Amphetamine: A powerful central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic. Amphetamine has multiple mechanisms of action including blocking uptake of adrenergics and dopamine, stimulation of release of monamines, and inhibiting monoamine oxidase. Amphetamine is also a drug of abuse and a psychotomimetic. The l- and the d,l-forms are included here. The l-form has less central nervous system activity but stronger cardiovascular effects. The d-form is DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.Receptors, N-Methyl-D-Aspartate: A class of ionotropic glutamate receptors characterized by affinity for N-methyl-D-aspartate. NMDA receptors have an allosteric binding site for glycine which must be occupied for the channel to open efficiently and a site within the channel itself to which magnesium ions bind in a voltage-dependent manner. The positive voltage dependence of channel conductance and the high permeability of the conducting channel to calcium ions (as well as to monovalent cations) are important in excitotoxicity and neuronal plasticity.Verbal Behavior: Includes both producing and responding to words, either written or spoken.

... Article Gray matter deficits in young onset schizophrenia are independent of age of onset. Impact Factor: 10.26. Brain magnetic resonance imaging MRI scans were acquired in 57 men with schizophrenia, whose age at MRI was 19-53 years, and whose symptom onset ranged from age 7 to 29 years; all were inpatients in a state hospital. The schizophrenic patients had larger volumes of cortical and ventricular CSF and smaller volumes of cortical GM but not WM than age-matched controls, whether or not volumes were adjusted for head size and age norms. "However, conventional MRI findings in earlier studies for cerebral white matter volume in schizophrenia have been mixed. Some of them found no differences in white matter volume between schizophrenic patients and normal subjects, while some reported white matter reductions in schizophrenia. In this paper, we will briefly review some of recent human studies showing white matter abnormalities in schizophrenic brains and altered oligodendrocyte- OL- and myelin-related g...

Most people with the variation, known as a polymorphism, do not have the disease. A University of Iowa Health Care study reveals a good prognosis for people who do have this form of schizophrenia. The team also found that this polymorphism is associated with overall benefits for human survival, and the initial mutation occurred in a single common ancestor about 100,000 years ago. The findings have implications for finding better ways to treat this particular type of schizophrenia and possibly augmenting the positive influences of the polymorphism on human survival.

Schizophrenia Diagnosis A new study from Edinburgh University says that people in high-risk categories for schizophrenia who go on to develop the disease show subtle early warning signs that distinguish them from others in their group. Such eary symptoms were subtle in nature, tending not to be debilitating to daily life. However, researchers say that even these small indicators can be identified using behavioural tests. Another important finding of the study is that many more people are genetically at-risk for schizophrenia than the actual number who will eventually develop the illness. Out of the 163 at-risk subjects identified based on their genetic susceptibility, only 20 eventually developed schizophrenia. Based on the early symptoms of those who actually develop schizophrenia, the scientists believe that the basis of schizoph...

... Age of onset. Gender differences have been observed in the age of onset of schizophrenia. In fact, the first onset of schizophrenia for men occurs around the ages of 20 to 25, while in women the first onset generally occurs between the ages of 25 to 30 years. They found that the mean age for onset in men was 30, while in women it was 39. All of this information is consistent with other studies showing that women have a later age of onset of schizophrenia and suffer more from severe positive symptoms rather than negative symptoms. Not only do women show fewer negative symptoms, but they respond better to antipsychotics. Estrogen and dopamine. This would explain why women have peak in the onset of schizophrenia in their late forties since at this time estrogen levels drop in women, causing the dopamine to increase, resulting in psychotic symptoms.

Age-Related Decline in IQ Linked to Schizophrenia Risk By Traci Pedersen ~ 1 min read. A person who is at greater risk for developing schizophrenia is more likely to experience a decline in IQ with age. This may happen even if the person does not go on to develop the disorder, say scientists at the University of Edinburgh. Using genetic analysis techniques, the researchers compared the IQ scores of more than 1,000 people from Edinburgh. The participants were tested for general cognitive functions in 1947, at age 11, and again when they were about 70 years old. Then the researchers compared the IQ scores of people with a high risk of developing schizophrenia to the scores of those with a low risk for the disorder. The researchers ...

... News A-Z. Life Science Laboratory. News. A simple electronic application may help the patient learn to shift focus. Auditory hallucinations are one of the most common symptoms associated with schizophrenia. So what happens when patients with schizophrenia hear a real voice and a hallucinatory one at the same time. These studies focused either on spontaneous inner-voice triggered neural activation in subjects with schizophrenia or the stimulatory reaction prompted by actual sounds in both healthy and schizophrenic subjects. It emerged that many researchers had observed either that a spontaneous activation of neurons occurs in patients hearing inner voices or that the patients' perception of actual voices becomes suppressed when these are heard simultaneously with inner voices. The neurons become 'preoccupied' and can't 'process' voices from the outside, explains Professor Hugdahl. The voices are still there, but the test subjects feel that they have control over the voices instead of the other way around....

Signs and symptoms Diagnosis Cause Genetic. The signs and symptoms of childhood schizophrenia are nearly the same as adult-onset schizophrenia. It is often difficult for children to describe their hallucinations or delusions, making early-onset schizophrenia especially difficult to diagnose in the earliest stages. 3 Very early-onset schizophrenia refers to onset before the age of thirteen. Many children with auditory hallucinations believe that if they do not listen to the voices, the voices will harm them or someone else. The same criteria are used to diagnose children and adults, but diagnosis of children is more challenging. Some symptoms that may be looked at are early language delays, early mo...

... However, even after accounting for avoidable causes of death, including suicide, patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder still have significantly higher mortality rates than the general population, say the researchers. Avoidable deaths, such as suicide and those caused by accidents and suboptimal healthcare, accounted for 60.2% of all deaths in patients with schizophrenia and 59.2% of deaths in patients with bipolar disorder. Although SMRs among patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder fell significantly after excluding avoidable deaths, they remained significantly elevated, at 2.38 and 1.66, respectively. "Our study indicates that avoidable mortality is an important component of death in people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder who have recently been discharged from inpatient care, especially deaths potentially amenable to high-quality medical care," write the researchers in Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica. ed982c69-2f0d-4df5-af55-12e5e791e12d|0|.0 Posted in: Medical Research News T...

Gray matter volumes were reduced in all parietal subregions in patients with schizophrenia compared with healthy controls. In contrast, the schizotypal subjects had gray matter reductions only in the PoCG, while other regions were not affected.

Catastrophic schizophrenia was thought to be the most severe subtype of schizophrenia, as it had "an acute onset and rapid decline into a chronic state without remission". 4 The term "catastrophic schizophrenia" has fallen out of use due to a number of reasons, including advances in psychiatric treatment, which led to a significant decline in patients that fit the diagnosis as their symptoms did not reach the severity of catastrophic schizophrenia, along with modern refinement of the definition and subtypes of schizophrenia. In modern terms, catastrophic schizophrenia would likely be defined as 'acute-onset chronic schizophrenia with poor prognosis'. Schizophrenia evolved from Kraepelin 's dementia praecox, which was first defined in 1893. ...

Â The question must be, “How much more violent are schizophrenics than the general public?” Â What is the true relationship between schizophrenia and violence. The Truth Concerning Schizophrenia and Violence. Â As stated above, the underlying assumption by the public is that people suffering with schizophrenia are more violent than members of the general public for whatever reason that may be, including psychosis, fear and paranoia, an increased perception of danger and the need to defend themselves, etc. If we consider the results of the research above, saying that 10% is the high threshold for violence in schizophrenics but that the true number fluctuates somewhere lower, then that still seems astounding.

Search Comments. Published online October 3 in Nature Genetics, the study undertakes the largest hunt yet for “de novo” mutations in the protein-coding exomes of 231 cases of schizophrenia and 34 controls. So far, exome sequencing has turned up a scattering of de novo variants in people with schizophrenia, which outnumber those in controls and localize to a diverse group of genes see SRF related news story and SRF news story. This has been made tricky by the discovery of similar rare variants in healthy people: For example, the de novo mutation rate in the exome in people with autism is similar to that of their unaffected siblings see SRF related news story. This conundrum dogs any kind of rare event, de novo or not: Another recent exome sequencing study did not find that moderately rare variants found in schizophrenia cases occurred more frequently than in controls see SRF related news story.

If the people with personal experience won't speak out about it, public attitudes will never change, she believes.

Schizophrenia makes it difficult for sufferers to distinguish hallucinations from reality. Schizophrenia often leads to or is triggered by substance abuse. Adderall use can lead to addiction, and this drug use and abuse may be closely related to schizophrenia. Can Adderall Use Cause Schizophrenia. Abusing any substance can worsen mental health issues such as depression or anxiety. If someone has a family history of either substance abuse or a mental health issue, he or she is at greater risk for addiction and schizophrenia. Age and environmental factors can trigger schizophrenia symptoms in predisposed individuals. Adderall use has been linked to both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Interactions between Adderall and other medications may cause or worsen health problems. Substance abuse of any kind can cause permanent damage to a person’s psychological state. An individual with schizophrenia is more likely to abuse substances than someone without a mental health disorder. A person with schizophrenia may ...

Excess Body Weight of a Mother during pregnancy above normal healthy pregnancy rates is associated with a higher risk of child's development of schizophrenia. Supporting Scientific Evidence. Helpful Actions. Excess body weight which is typically linked to poor dietary habits in a pregnant mother has been linked with increased likelihood of the child developing schizophrenia. In a recent research report, scientists found a 24% increase in the risk of the child developing schizophrenia for every a one-unit increase of BMI Body Mass Index measurement during early pregnancy, and a 19% increase during late pregnancy. These factors were found to contribute, in part, to an excess of obstetric complications baby delivery complications in individuals with schizophrenia.

This has led researchers to identify factors other than psychosis that are associated with poor functional outcome. Perhaps not surprisingly, impaired cognition has emerged as a highly reliable predictor of poor functional outcome in schizophrenia. The insight that impaired cognition underlies much of the functional disability in schizophrenia is well timed in view of the explosion of new knowledge over the past decade regarding how the brain supports cognitive and emotional processing and how this is modulated neuropharmacologically and by experience. First, the specific cognitive mechanisms that fail in schizophrenia need to be identified, together with the process by which these deficits lead to functional disability. Seco...

This is in contrast to a categorical view of psychosis, where psychosis is considered to be a particular (usually pathological) state, that someone either has, or has not.Postoperative cognitive dysfunction: Postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is a short-term decline in cognitive function (especially in memory and executive functions) that may last from a few days to a few weeks after surgery. In rare cases, this disorder may persist for several months after major surgery.Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status: The Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status is a neuropsychological assessment initially introduced in 1998. It consists of ten subtests which give five scores, one for each of the five domains tested (immediate memory, visuospatial/constructional, language, attention, delayed memory).Bipolar disorderRisperidoneDesmethylclozapine: N-Desmethylclozapine (NDMC), or norclozapine, is a major active metabolite of the atypical antipsychotic drug clozapine. Unlike clozapine, it possesses intrinsic activity at the D2/D3 receptors, and acts as a weak partial agonist at these sites similarly to aripiprazole and bifeprunox.Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale: The Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS) is rating scale which a clinician or researcher may use to measure psychiatric symptoms such as depression, anxiety, hallucinations and unusual behaviour.Overall JE, Gorham DR (1962).DelusionPeduncular hallucinosis: Peduncular hallucinosis (PH), or Lhermitte's peduncular hallucinosis, is a rare neurological disorder that causes vivid visual hallucinations that typically occur in dark environments, and last for several minutes. Unlike some other kinds of hallucinations, the hallucinations that patients with PH experience are very realistic, and often involve people and environments that are familiar to the affected individuals.Psychotic depression: Psychotic depression, also known as depressive psychosis, is a major depressive episode that is accompanied by psychotic symptoms.Hales E and Yudofsky JA, eds, The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Psychiatry, Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc.Reduplicative paramnesia: Reduplicative paramnesia is the delusional belief that a place or location has been duplicated, existing in two or more places simultaneously, or that it has been 'relocated' to another site. It is one of the delusional misidentification syndromes and, although rare, is most commonly associated with acquired brain injury, particularly simultaneous damage to the right cerebral hemisphere and to both frontal lobes.HyperintensityHaloperidolNested case-control study: A nested case control (NCC) study is a variation of a case-control study in which only a subset of controls from the cohort are compared to the incident cases. In a case-cohort study, all incident cases in the cohort are compared to a random subset of participants who do not develop the disease of interest.SonepiprazoleBenzodiazepine misuse: The non-medical use of Benzodiazepine drugs (called misuse or abuse in public health journals) is the use of benzodiazepines without a prescription, often for recreational purposes, which poses risks of dependence, withdrawal and other long-term effects. Benzodiazepines are one of the more common prescription drugs used recreationally.Middle frontal gyrus: The middle frontal gyrus makes up about one-third of the frontal lobe of the human brain. (A gyrus is one of the prominent "bumps" or "ridges" on the surface of the human brain.Patent encumbrance of large automotive NiMH batteriesGary H. Posner: Gary H. Posner (born c.Brodmann area 38: Brodmann area 38, also BA38 or temporopolar area 38 (H), is part of the temporal cortex in the human brain. BA 38 is at the anterior end of the temporal lobe, known as the temporal pole.Dibenzothiazepine: Dibenzothiazepines are chemical compounds which are derivatives of thiazepine with two benzene rings.Image fusion: In computer vision, Multisensor Image fusion is the process of combining relevant information from two or more images into a single image.Haghighat, M.The Art of Negative Thinking: The Art of Negative Thinking (Norwegian: Kunsten å tenke negativt) is a 2006 Norwegian black comedy film directed and written by Bård Breien. The storyline revolves around a man (played by Fridtjov Såheim) who is adjusting to life in a wheelchair, and the socializing group he is made to join.Cingulate sulcus: The cingulate sulcus is a sulcus (brain fold) on the medial wall of the cerebral cortex. The frontal and parietal lobes are separated from the cingulate gyrus by the cingulate sulcus.Substance-induced psychosisAuditory event: Auditory events describe the subjective perception, when listening to a certain sound situation. This term was introduced by Jens Blauert (Ruhr-University Bochum) in 1966, in order to distinguish clearly between the physical sound field and the auditory perception of the sound.SchizophreniaTBR1: T-box, brain, 1 is a transcription factor protein important in vertebrate embryo development. It is encoded by the TBR1 gene.Hemispatial neglectMemory clinic: A memory clinic is a dedicated medical clinic specialising in the assessment and diagnosis of memory disorders. Memory clinics were first seen in the UK in the 1980s, mainly in academic research centres.Cognitive skill: Cognitive functioning is a term referring to a human’s ability to process to (thoughts) that should not deplete on a large scale in healthy individuals. Cognition mainly refers to things like memory, the ability to learn new information, speech, understanding of written material.Quantitative electroencephalography: Quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG) is a field concerned with the numerical analysis of electroencephalography data and associated behavioral correlates.Fritz Heider: Fritz Heider (February 19, 1896 – January 2, 1988)American Psychologist., "Fritz Heider (1896 - 1988)".Jimmie AngelEgo (religion)FluphenazineCerebral hemisphere: The vertebrate cerebrum (brain) is formed by two cerebral hemispheres that are separated by a groove, the medial longitudinal fissure. The brain can thus be described as being divided into left and right cerebral hemispheres.WGAViewer: WGAViewer is a bioinformatics software tool which is designed to visualize, annotate, and help interpret the results generated from a genome wide association study (GWAS). Alongside the P values of association, WGAViewer allows a researcher to visualize and consider other supporting evidence, such as the genomic context of the SNP, linkage disequilibrium (LD) with ungenotyped SNPs, gene expression database, and the evidence from other GWAS projects, when determining the potential importance of an individual SNP.Methylazoxymethanol acetateAgonal respiration: Agonal respiration, gasping respiration or agonal breathing is an abnormal pattern of breathing and brainstem reflex characterized by gasping, labored breathing, accompanied by strange vocalizations and myoclonus. Possible causes include cerebral ischemia, extreme hypoxia or even anoxia.Dopamine receptorEmotional responsivity: Emotional responsivity refers to the ability to acknowledge an affective stimuli by exhibiting emotion. Any response, whether it is appropriate or not, would showcase the presence of this phenomena.Amusia: Amusia is a musical disorder that appears mainly as a defect in processing pitch, but it also encompasses musical memory and recognition.Pearce, J.Regularized canonical correlation analysis: Regularized canonical correlation analysis is a way of using ridge regression to solve the singularity problem in the cross-covariance matrices of canonical correlation analysis. By converting \operatorname{cov}(X, X) and \operatorname{cov}(Y, Y) into \operatorname{cov}(X, X) + \lambda I_X and \operatorname{cov}(Y, Y) + \lambda I_Y, it ensures that the above matrices will have reliable inverses.Emotion and memory: Emotion can have a powerful response on humans and animals. Numerous studies have shown that the most vivid autobiographical memories tend to be of emotional events, which are likely to be recalled more often and with more clarity and detail than neutral events.Genetics of social behavior: The genetics of social behavior is an area of research that attempts to address the question of the role that genes play in modulating the neural circuits in the brain which influence social behavior.

(1/7917) Improving social interaction in chronic psychotic using discriminated avoidance ("nagging"): experimental analysis and generalization.

Three social-interaction behaviors of a withdrawn chronic schizophrenic were increased using a discriminated avoidance ("nagging") procedure. The three behaviors were: (a) voice volume loud enough so that two-thirds of his speech was intellibible at a distance of 3m; (b) duration of speech of at least 15 sec; (c) placement of hands and elbows on the armrests of the chair in which he was sitting. "Nagging" consisted of verbal prompts to improve performance when the behaviors did not meet their criteria. A combined withdrawal and multiple-baseline design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the procedure, and the contingency was sequentially applied to each of the three behaviors in each of four different interactions to determine the degree of stimulus and response generalization. Results indicated that the contingency was the effective element in increasing the patient's appropriate performance, and that there was a high degree of stimulus generalization and a moderate degree of response generalization. After the patient's discharge from the hospital, the durability of improvement across time and setting was determined in followup sessions conducted at a day treatment center and at a residential care home. Volume and duration generalized well to the new settings, while arm placement extinguished immediately.  (+info)

(2/7917) Effects of family history and place and season of birth on the risk of schizophrenia.

BACKGROUND: Although a family history of schizophrenia is the best-established risk factor for schizophrenia, environmental factors such as the place and season of birth may also be important. METHODS: Using data from the Civil Registration System in Denmark, we established a population-based cohort of 1.75 million persons whose mothers were Danish women born between 1935 and 1978. We linked this cohort to the Danish Psychiatric Central Register and identified 2669 cases of schizophrenia among cohort members and additional cases among their parents. RESULTS: The respective relative risks of schizophrenia for persons with a mother, father, or sibling who had schizophrenia were 9.31 (95 percent confidence interval, 7.24 to 11.96), 7.20 (95 percent confidence interval, 5.10 to 10.16), and 6.99 (95 percent confidence interval, 5.38 to 9.09), as compared with persons with no affected parents or siblings. The risk of schizophrenia was associated with the degree of urbanization of the place of birth (relative risk for the capital vs. rural areas, 2.40; 95 percent confidence interval, 2.13 to 2.70). The risk was also significantly associated with the season of birth; it was highest for births in February and March and lowest for births in August and September. The population attributable risk was 5.5 percent for a history of schizophrenia in a parent or sibling, 34.6 percent for urban place of birth, and 10.5 percent for the season of birth. CONCLUSIONS: Although a history of schizophrenia in a parent or sibling is associated with the highest relative risk of having the disease, the place and season of birth account for many more cases on a population basis.  (+info)

(3/7917) Search for retroviral related DNA polymorphisms using RAPD PCR in schizophrenia.

Random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD) is widely used to detect polymorphisms in many organisms. Individual (or strain) specific amplified bands are generated with single or pairs of primers in PCR reactions and can serve as genetic markers. We have used this method to generate a large number of reproducible bands with single primers, random and retroviral related, on 92 human DNA samples. Theoretically, RAPD PCR presents a logical approach for assessing variability among individuals. We used ten retroviral related primers (12, 20 and 22 bp) and eight random primers (10 bp) to assess individual differences in the context of testing the retroviral hypothesis for schizophrenia. Three pairs of discordant monozygotic twins, four pairs of discordant full sibs and 53 schizophrenic individuals with 25 of their unrelated matched controls were analyzed. Ten of these primers resulted in a total of approx. 850 amplified bands (65-110 bands per primer). Almost all of these bands were identical among each individual analyzed. However, the results are inconclusive with respect to the retroviral hypothesis for schizophrenia. The general lack of RAPD polymorphism in this study may argue for mechanisms other than rearrangements such as inversions, associated with the evolution of the human genome.  (+info)

(4/7917) The size and fibre composition of the corpus callosum with respect to gender and schizophrenia: a post-mortem study.

In this study the cross-sectional area (in n = 14 female controls, 15 male controls, 11 female patients with schizophrenia, 15 male patients with schizophrenia) and fibre composition (in n = 11 female controls, 10 male controls, 10 female patients with schizophrenia, 10 male patients with schizophrenia) of the corpus callosum in post-mortem control and schizophrenic brains was examined. A gender x diagnosis interaction (P = 0.005) was seen in the density of axons in all regions of the corpus callosum except the posterior midbody and splenium. Amongst controls, females had greater density than males; in patients with schizophrenia this difference was reversed. A reduction in the total number of fibres in all regions of the corpus callosum except the rostrum was observed in female schizophrenic patients (P = 0.006; when controlling for brain weight, P = 0.053). A trend towards a reduced cross-sectional area of the corpus callosum was seen in schizophrenia (P = 0.098); however, this is likely to be no more than a reflection of an overall reduction in brain size. With age, all subregions of the corpus callosum except the rostrum showed a significant reduction in cross-sectional area (P = 0.018) and total fibre number (P = 0.002). These findings suggest that in schizophrenia there is a subtle and gender-dependent alteration in the forebrain commissures that may relate to the deviations in asymmetry seen in other studies, but the precise anatomical explanation remains obscure.  (+info)

(5/7917) The neuropsychopharmacology of phencyclidine: from NMDA receptor hypofunction to the dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia.

Administration of noncompetitive NMDA/glutamate receptor antagonists, such as phencyclidine (PCP) and ketamine, to humans induces a broad range of schizophrenic-like symptomatology, findings that have contributed to a hypoglutamatergic hypothesis of schizophrenia. Moreover, a history of experimental investigations of the effects of these drugs in animals suggests that NMDA receptor antagonists may model some behavioral symptoms of schizophrenia in nonhuman subjects. In this review, the usefulness of PCP administration as a potential animal model of schizophrenia is considered. To support the contention that NMDA receptor antagonist administration represents a viable model of schizophrenia, the behavioral and neurobiological effects of these drugs are discussed, especially with regard to differing profiles following single-dose and long-term exposure. The neurochemical effects of NMDA receptor antagonist administration are argued to support a neurobiological hypothesis of schizophrenia, which includes pathophysiology within several neurotransmitter systems, manifested in behavioral pathology. Future directions for the application of NMDA receptor antagonist models of schizophrenia to preclinical and pathophysiological research are offered.  (+info)

(6/7917) The use of atypical antipsychotics in the management of schizophrenia.

Long-term drug treatment of schizophrenia with conventional antipsychotics has limitations: an estimated quarter to one third of patients are treatment-resistant; conventional antipsychotics have only a modest impact upon negative symptoms (poverty of thought, social withdrawal and loss of affect); and adverse effects, particularly extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS). Newer, so-called atypical, antipsychotics such as olanzapine, risperidone, sertindole and clozapine (an old drug which was re-introduced in 1990) are claimed to address these limitations. Atypical agents are, at a minimum, at least as effective as conventional drugs such as haloperidol. They also cause substantially fewer extrapyramidal symptoms. However, some other adverse effects are more common than with conventional drugs. For example, clozapine carries a significant risk of serious blood disorders, for which special monitoring is mandatory; it also causes troublesome drowsiness and increased salivation more often than conventional agents. Some atypical agents cause more weight gain or QT prolongation than older agents. The choice of therapy is, therefore, not straightforward. At present, atypical agents represent an advance for patients with severe or intolerable EPS. Most published evidence exists to support the use of clozapine, which has also been shown to be effective in schizophrenia refractory to conventional agents. However, the need for compliance with blood count monitoring and its sedative properties make careful patient selection important. The extent of any additional direct benefit offered by atypical agents on negative symptoms is not yet clear. The lack of a depot formulation for atypical drugs may pose a significant practical problem. To date, only two double-blind studies in which atypical agents were compared directly have been published. Neither provides compelling evidence for the choice of one agent over another. Atypical agents are many times more expensive than conventional drugs. Although drug treatment constitutes only a small proportion of the costs of managing schizophrenia, the additional annual cost of the use of atypical agents in, say, a quarter of the likely U.K. schizophrenic population would be about 56 M pound sterling. There is only limited evidence of cost-effectiveness. Atypical antipsychotics are not currently licensed for other conditions where conventional antipsychotics are commonly used, such as behaviour disturbance or dementia in the elderly. Their dose, and place in treatment in such cases have yet to be determined.  (+info)

(7/7917) No correlation between A(-1438)G polymorphism in 5-HT2A receptor gene promoter and the density of frontal cortical 5-HT2A receptors in schizophrenia.

The A(-1438)G promoter polymorphism of the 5-hydroxytryptamine 2a receptor (5-HT2AR) gene and its influence on the cortical density of 5-HT2AR was studied using brain tissue donated at autopsy from 58 schizophrenic and 64 non-schizophrenic subjects. A linkage between genotypes for the A(-1438)G and a T102C polymorphic site identified in a previous study was observed. Our data suggest no association of the A(-1438)G polymorphism with schizophrenia and no effect of the promoter genotype upon 5-HT2AR densities in either the schizophrenic or non-schizophrenic groups.  (+info)

(8/7917) Differential effects of mental stress on plasma homovanillic acid in schizophrenia and normal controls.

We previously reported that mental stress by Kraepelin's arithmetic test decreases plasma homovanillic acid (pHVA) levels in psychiatrically normal healthy human subjects. The present study was undertaken to determine whether this pattern of changes in pHVA concentrations resulting from mental stress is altered in patients with schizophrenia. Fourteen male patients with schizophrenia including those under ongoing neuroleptic treatment and 14 normal male volunteers participated in the study. Following overnight fast and restricted physical activity, the subjects performed Kraepelin's arithmetic test for 30 minutes. Plasma samples were collected immediately before and after the test for measurement of pHVA levels. A significant diagnosis by Kraepelin's test effect was observed due to a decrease in pHVA levels by the Kraepelin test in control subjects but not in patients with schizophrenia. Changes in pHVA levels during the Kraepelin test positively correlated with pre-test pHVA levels in control subjects, while this correlation was not observed in patients with schizophrenia. These results may be further support for the presence of a dopamine-dependent restitutive system in the brain. The absence of response of pHVA levels to mental stress in patients with schizophrenia may indicate that the dopamine restitutive system in these patients is disrupted or already down-regulated, as previously predicted.  (+info)


Schizophrenia?


I've been diagnosed with schizophrenia since 12 years old.How could I overcome this mental illness?I am also experiencing inferiority complex.What should I do?I'm only 17
----------

Schizophrenia? Oh, you don't overcome schizophrenia. It's one of those things that unless your John Nash, you're stuck with. Find a way to get adapt to it. Maybe you enjoy your symptoms, if so, go off your medications, but the other people around you won't be pleased. You see, medications are for them more than you. A psychotic person is very disturbing to those around them and that's more than just the one person right? You're being sacrified for the greater good.

Of course, some people who have schizophrenia do well on medications and are glad to have them and go on to have productive fullfilling lives, of course, those people do a lot of therapy. See a therapist.


schizophrenia........................?


ok im 13 and some of my friends are saying they think i have schizophrenia but then i heard that schizophrenia isn't there until your in your old teens or early 20's so is it even possible that i could have it? 
is it something thats genetic cause my dad has it?
and im not really sure what exactly schizophrenia is either so could you please make that clearer to me?
is it only voices in your head telling you to die
or is it also schizophrenia when you hear voices in your head telling you to do things that aren't always bad?
PLEASE HELP!
----------

My guess is that you're okay so far, because KIDS CAN BE CRUEL and they may just be saying it because they 1. don't understand what schizophrenia really is anyway, and 2. might just want to hurt your feelings, and/or 3. maybe there is something unique about your personality, so they blame it on schizophrenia.

OR.... you COULD possibly have it..... but only a doctor can tell you for sure. Since your dad has it, I'm sure any doctor will take you seriously.

Here is some info to help (click on the link to get more help):

Schizophrenia is diagnosed with a medical history, physical exam, and a mental health assessment.

If a health professional suspects that you may be depressed or considering suicide, a suicide assessment may also be taken.

Other tests, such as a CT scan or an MRI, and blood tests may be done to rule out other conditions that can cause symptoms similar to schizophrenia.

New evidence suggests that the structure of the brain may be different in those who develop schizophrenia.7 Brain imaging studies (such as a CT scan or an MRI) may be done to evaluate the size, structure, and functioning of the brain.

Schizophrenia is accurately diagnosed when:

    * You have at least two of the following symptoms in the active phase of the disorder, each having lasted for at least 1 month:
          o Hallucinations
          o Delusions
          o Disorganized speech
          o Grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior
          o Negative symptoms (no emotion, inability to experience pleasure, difficulty concentrating)
    * Problems functioning on the job or with other people.
    * Continuous signs of schizophrenia that have been present for at least 6 months, with symptoms being active for at least 1 month.
    * No other mental health or substance abuse problems.


SCHIZOPHRENIA???????????????????????????????????


It's a possibility for me to be Schizophrenic...Do you Agree....?

Well, it runs through my family and I have every illness and condition and mental state that has gone through my family. I seem to have the symptoms.
but I am still young so it's not that obvious (I'm 15, turning 16 in 2 weeks)
I have been called "mental" a few times and my sister and mum sense I am.
I am overly conscious, I always think people are always talking about me, I talk to myself or pretend someone is there and just talk to "the imaginary person".
But, I don't think a Schizophrenic person would admit that themselves or notice that about them self.

But...what do you think?

Serious answers please, this is no joke. Keep it serious.
I forgot to mention that I DO hallucinate and hear voices A LOT like at least twice everyday
I get told that I am mental and there is something wrong with me but I snap and scream back "No! There is something wrong with you!! You are the mental one"

I talk to myself a lot and I do it in public without realising (people tell me I'm talking to myself)
----------

Well in Schizophrenia, one doesn't typically "pretend" someone else is there; one typically really believes they are speaking to another person who isn't really there. However, you can actually make yourself go insane by constantly thinking something is wrong with you. My best suggestion is that you go to a psyhologist and have a professional analyze you. They will be able to tell you if something is actuallyy wrong with you..and then you can be at peace. If there's nothing wrong with you, you can move on with your life and stop worrying. And if you do in fact have a mental illness, you will be provided with proper therapy/medication so that you can get better. :) So either way, everything will be okay!


How bad is schizophrenia? How bad is it to live with schizophrenia in reality?


I am having trouble sleeping all through the night and I'm afraid that schizophrenia may be setting in...I assume the worst (schizophrenia) instead of anxiety, depression or just plain old insomnia, because I have a family history of severe mental illness...please let me now what onset schizophrenia is or is like, especially if you or a loved one has schizophrenia. thank you.
----------

I've known a few people who have had schizophrenia. It is truly a frightening disease. I admit to hearing voices almost every day, which tell things that I don't want to hear sometimes. They'll tell me to do things, insult me, and just talk to me sometimes. It happens especially when I am alone. At night it is horrid, especially if I sleep on a floor (goes with a demon I think is taunting me). My pillow and blanket would literally play music. It's like, if I think about a song, I can hear it. My brother doesn't think I have it, but I know what I'm going through, not him. But whatever, you know? If you believe you need help for it, go get some if you can. You begin to confuse fantasy and reality, which is very confusing when you're trying to think back to what happened when people tell you otherwise. 

If you are unable to get support from family like I was at first, I can give you a think for support. It's a wonderful community-- the people seem to understand you, even if they don't have the same disease. 

I hope things don't get worse for you. It's no fun. Best of luck.


What is the difference between Schizophrenia and SchizoAffective Disorder?


I have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, Schizophrenia, and Schizoaffective disorder? According to my neuropsychological evaluation, they only found Asperger's disorder and Schizoaffective disorder? Does that mean I was given a false diagnosis of Schizophrenia. Schizophrenia shows two personalities. Schizoaffective disorder does not. How many personalities does schizoaffective disorder show?
----------

Let's get a few facts straight here before everyone goes off even more confused than before. 

Schizophrenia is not about more than 1 personality at all. Never has been either. That would be what was called MPD multiple personality disorder that has been renamed DID dissociative identity disorder. People with DID can have dozens of personalities.

The schizophrenia diagnosis has many different sub-types the most well known and common being paranoid. Thus you must have had symptoms of this to be diagnosed at first. 

It's not always easy to make a hard diagnosis at first. If they then see evidence of a mood disorder they may rethink the diagnosis. If you had depression and separate schizophrenia that would be fine but then some showing these symptoms take a manic episode or even a hypomanic one indicating bipolar symptoms. Schizoaffective is where someone has a mood disorder as well as the schizophrenic symptoms. It's not always easy to spot the difference. That is why they tend to treat symptoms rather than diagnosis.

I can't understand why any psychiatrist would say you had schizophrenia or schizoaffective without explaining it to you at the time of telling you this.

It's not an easy thing to live with so good luck in finding the right medications to treat this.


Does schizophrenia affect schizophrenics differently? How many types of schizophrenia are there?


Also, how bad does schizophrenia get? Something that always comes to my mind about schizophrenia is the gray matter of a schizophrenics brain. How does "gray matter" affect someone's intelligence?
----------

Schizophrenia nearly always affects people differently.  Currently there are six types of schizophrenia: paranoid, catatonic, undifferentiated, disorganized, residual, and childhood-onset schizophrenia.  Each of the different types have a variety of symptoms that occur most often within each type.  In a general sense, some people may experience auditory and visual hallucinations but never have disorganized thoughts or speech.  Other people may experience catatonic behavior and disorganized speech.  Nearly any combination of symptoms is possible and nearly any degree of severity is possible.

People with schizophrenia may go on to lead highly productive and independent lives (not requiring assistance from others.  Others may fall on the complete opposite end of the spectrum and always require care from a hospital or residential treatment center.  Most people fall in the middle and can maintain somewhat productive lives as long as they have a strong support system of doctors, therapists, family members, and friends.

As for the gray matter, that is a term used to describe the cerebral cortex.  The gray matter consists of neuron cell bodies.  It controls functions such as muscle control, sensory perceptions, seeing, hearing, memory, emotions, and speech.  Therefore, people who have schizophrenia that has damaged the gray matter of the brain tend to have problems in these areas.  They are not less intelligent.  Instead they may have memory problems, difficulty showing emotions (flat affect), disorganized or jumbled speech, and more severe hallucinations.  This is not always true but it does tend to be the pattern.  Gray matter becomes more damaged the more psychotic episodes a schizophrenic has.  Also, only 25-40% of people with schizophrenia have gray matter damage that can be detected my an MRI scan.  This makes it difficult to know if all schizophrenics have gray matter damage or if it is a condition that is not always consistent with the illness.


My friend has schizophrenia and I want to know if she will ever act violent ?


Are schizophrenia people easy to get along with? Do schizophrenia people take orders well? Are schizophrenia people easy to control? Do schizophrenia people laugh loudly in crazy way?
----------

they usually don't take orders well,actually. and why would you want to control anyone? that is downright evil.

violence amongst schizophrenics is actually quite rare. still, i wouldn't do anything to provoke anyone,regardless. It's just not nice.

there is a stigma attached to this illness and you seem to have been taken in by that. Your friend is still the same friend you had before you found out about this. Be there for her,talk with her about things,and be good to her.


What is the difference between schizophrenia and severe depression with psychotic features?


It appears to me that the two diagnoses are very similar..could it be that severe depression with psychotic episodes is a more conservative diagnisis than schizophrenia?  Maybe the first step of diagnosis for schizophrenia?  Insight please, and try to explain your answers as in depth as possible.
----------

Depression is not part of the diagnositic criteria for schizophrenia, although many schizophrenics do have depression. You might find this description helpfull:
