SCHIZOPHRENIA

Nobody knows for sure what causes schizophrenia. Research suggests that schizophrenia may be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. An imbalance in these chemicals can cause messages in the brain to get mixed up. Scientists believe that schizophrenia, like many other illnesses, results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Symptoms of schizophrenia

Positive symptoms are extra feelings that usually are not present. Examples of positive symptoms include:

• Distortions in thought content (delusions)

• Hearing, seeing, tasting, feeling, or smelling things that do not exist (hallucinations)

• Disorganized speech and behavior

Negative symptoms are a lack of behaviors or feelings that usually are present. Examples of negative symptoms include:

• Losing interest in everyday activities, such as bathing, grooming, or getting dressed

• Feeling out of touch with other people, family, or friends

• Lack of feeling or emotion (apathy)

• Having little emotion or inappropriate feelings in certain situations

• Having less ability to experience pleasure
