Albany, NY — 12/15/2017 — Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder, described by poor emotional reactions, interruption in thinking and lack of social and physical enthusiasm. The indications of schizophrenia can be categories into three types: positive, negative, and cognitive. Positive symptoms includes hallucinations, delusions and thought disorders, negative symptoms includes reduced feelings of pleasure in everyday life, difficulty beginning and sustaining activities and reduced speaking. Cognitive symptoms includes problems with working memory and trouble in focusing or paying attention. In addition, deterioration of personal hygiene, over sleeping or restlessness, suspiciousness and depression are some other symptoms of the disease.
Schizophrenia is caused due to genetic malignancies, environment, neurotrauma, drug and alcohol abuse, genes and imbalance in complex chemical reactions of the brain and many others. People with this disease have imbalance in neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, which allows nerve cells to send message to each other. Improved diagnostic tools, the advent of atypical antipsychotic medications and the development of phase-specific psychosocial treatments have made intervention research in people at ultra-high risk for developing schizophrenia or a related psychotic disorder possible. Antipsychotic medication has been established as a standard of care for persons diagnosed with a psychotic disorder.
The causes of schizophrenia are still unknown, treatments focus on eliminating the symptoms of the disease. The treatments includes: antipsychotics, psychosocial treatments, coordinated specialty care. Antipsychotic medications work as antagonists at dopamine receptors and provide support for the hypothesis that psychotic symptoms are in part due to dysregulated dopaminergic transmission.
