Here is a quiz I thought you might like doing.

Schizophrenia


Researcher  Dr. Tom Weickert  said that our brain produces  from our type of learning because how it can  improve every day. I t can be as little as  twenty minutes  that can help  win schizophrenia  through our electrical current that the  brain  which goes through  our brain and the electrodes. “TDCS transmits a very mild electrical current to the brain through electrodes on the scalp.” The TCDs  can also be when the brain  that was called pre-frontal cortex  that from  these people who were  for about twenty minutes.This had allowed us to see that our brain goes through the nerve cell which can help from the learning system.

From this article of research  what we may not know is that not everyone knows  why there is this type of research can also help people in their day lives.  Also I really  think this is something people may not be aware of.

A  Schizophrenia

This article discusses

by  which  can be the  amount of  the person that usually has the  disorganized  thinking. This is when the person can  not  stay on their task  for a long time. They tend to  also not  have words  when  make sense when they are  talking.  This is commonly  Grossly disorganized behavior   it is when and will cause the problems that can relate to  how the  person will be on a daily basics.

Absent or inappropriate emotional expression:

This  happens when the person when a person does  things like laughing or other things.

Other signs and symptoms of disorganized schizophrenia:

  • Having beliefs not based on reality (delusions)
  • Seeing or hearing things that don’t exist (hallucinations), especially voices
  • Grimacing
  • Odd postures
  • Trouble functioning at school or work
  • Social isolation
  • Clumsy, uncoordinated movements

If you  find that a person has  this type of  symptom or  is dangerous, you should call for help. Also   the person may need hospitalization. They  may even  need help with the suicidal thoughts that  include  might  will call 911  for  immediate attention. It shows the  patterns with the different patterns of the person’s brain.

I think this  is important to  know,the causes and symptoms  of  how this can affect you and   may not be aware that the person had it.

This is  also by which people can be crazy. The research shows that there are  one hundred people who  have  the type of  it. There are positive symptoms and  negative sympotms.LSD  may  wear off  by the people. These people can also be awaken from their sleep like having nightmare. (fMRI) are the study that shows how  it is the brain abnormalities. However, you can get medication that is antipsychotic.

“Niacin (vitamin B3) deficiency”.Dr.Hoffer had treated the symptoms.”

“A minimum therapeutic level is 1g a day. These levels are in the order of 100 times the RDA. Levels of niacin much higher than these, particularly in sustained-release tablets, can be liver toxic. Out of perhaps 100,000 people taking meg of     niacin  level  of  several over the past 40 years, there have been two deaths due to liver failure. In a third case, jaundice resulted from a slow-release preparation. When the same patient was placed back on standard niacin, he no longer got jaundice. In any event, anything over 1g is best taken under the supervision of a qualified practitioner. If you become nauseated, that is an indication to stop supplementation and resume three days later, with a lower amount. If you have a history of liver problems, you should have regular monitoring of liver enzymes.”

B12 and B6  levels also decrease. I think this article does a very good job, at presenting the information that is given. Really  liked how it  gave the type of  sources that  was allowed  me to,  see these type of studies that has become the liking.Finally found  out  never really  knew much  about this.

“We think that both our genetic rodent model as well as a new learning and memory  test we developed may provide valuable tools in the investigation of  schizophrenia. ”

-Dr. Robert Greene

Schizophrenia


Schizophrenia is a psychosis characterized by personality and thought disorganization, and it affects an estimated 1 percent of all people. Schizophrenics occupy more mental hospital beds than patients with any other single diagnosis.”

“Patients have “positive” symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions, and “negative” symptoms such as lack of speech, expressionless or unemotional demeanor, lack of speech and thinking deficits such as poor memory, problems carrying tasks to achieve a goal and an inability to focus attention.” I think this is a way to put it into perspective how people will have it. Although it allows us to see that  many of us many  not know why it is the causes  from it.

This is a   video on  Talk Therapy  Elevision that gives you some  information on SCHIZOPHRENIA. It can also  be a mental illness that a person can  have. You can  join a social support to help you  cope with it.

Researchers are finding  new ways to find out what tools what causes Schizophrenia. Happy Easter,hope everyone having a nice easter.

Schizophrenia


This is a quote that found on images.

“Schizophrenia cannot be understood without understanding despair.”  Thought this quote was able to help you ,know what people have and do not realize.

Schizophrenia


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.
