This article directs that people can have different personalities. It has said to be one of the common “mental  illness.” The DSM-IV talks about what a schizophrenia may have before  being diagnosed with it. Common terms can be Delusions which can have things that are not true. Well I think it is important to know what these people are doing, so you may be aware of it. I think that you should be aware of the negative symptoms that the person may have. There are also three types which include:

“Disorganized Schizophrenia(previously called “hebephrenic schizophrenia”) – lack of emotion, disorganized speech”

“Catatonic schizophrenia waxy flexibility, reduced movement, rigid posture, sometimes too much movement”

  • “Paranoid Schizophrenia – strong delusions or hallucinations”
  • “Catatonic schizophrenia waxy flexibility, reduced movement, rigid posture, sometimes too much movement”
  • “Paranoid Schizophrenia – strong delusions or hallucinations”

I think it is important to use the DSM-IV book because it gives useful information. In this article it shows pictures of  MRI:  of your brain with twins that have Schizophrenia and the other one that does not have Schizophrenia.  It can be also your genetics from your family. There are different types of medication for the schizophrenia.  However, this information is very informative. I think that it very inserting; to learn about because, you may not be aware that a patient may have those types of symptoms.  Also I think it is important to get counseling if they need help. The DSM-IV  I really like the information that they have in the book?

This neuroscience for kids gives children a basic science that  they can learn some info about Schizophrenia. Children can learn this in their science class at an older age. In my opinion this article gives a lot of information, and it talks a lot about what Schizophrenia is. I think this science article is a very good article and  gets its point across to readers because it  really gives great science on the topic Schizophrenia.
