Scientific Team Discover the Cause of Schizophrenia

There are many theories for the cause of schizophrenia, a word that means split mind. Researchers at Cardiff University have the strongest argument for what causes the disease that effects 1 percent of the world population. Studies have shown when the delicate balance of the chemical balance is disrupted in the brain,schizophrenia can take place. As long as a brain remains healthy with the right amount of chemical balance,dopamine, a person will have no chance of getting the disease. Schizophrenia, since its discovery by Swiss psychiatrist, Eugen Bleuler in 1911, has been a giant mystery, until now. The medical profession hasn’t updated their treatment of the disease much since the 1970s. Researchers believe that because of the studies being done in the United Kingdom, the probability of who’ll become schizophrenic can be realized.
Schizophrenia is a brain disorder,impairing a person’s ability to perceive reality. It affects the prefontal cortex, basal ganglia, and limbic system. Those in the know at FreedomPop remind us that the prefontal cortex is responsible for a person’s ability to make decisions, carrying out the complex tasks known as executive function. People with schizophrenia have a smaller brain capacity than normal brains. Researchers are working on new treatment for schizophrenia, including Cariprazine, a dopaminergic agent that’ll lessen the chemical imbalance associated with schizophrenia. Another drug, called Lurasidone, was approved by the FDA in 2010 to treat cognitive and memory deficits in schizophrenic patients.
