schizophrenia. March 2002. WHAT IS schizophrenia? The term schizophrenia was first used in 1911 by Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist
Schizophrenia March 2002 WHAT IS SCHIZOPHRENIA? The term schizophrenia was first used in 1911 by Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist, to categorize patients whose thought processes and emotional responses seemed disconnected. The term schizophrenia literally means split mind; however, many people still believe incorrectly that the condition causes a split personality (which is an uncommon problem involving dissociation).
Schizophrenia is now used to describe a cluster of symptoms that typically includes the following:
  • Delusions.
  • Hallucinations.
  • Disordered thinking.
  • Emotional unresponsiveness.
Because symptoms of schizophrenia arise from various physical processes and respond differently to treatments, some experts recommend classifying the disease based on the presence of the following symptom groups:
  • Negative symptoms (including apathy and social withdrawal).
  • Psychotic symptoms.
  • Disordered thinking. (Some experts group psychotic and disordered thinking in a single category called positive symptoms.)
The disease is complicated by the fact that although a schizophrenic patient may have more than one symptom, he or she rarely has all of them. Symptoms also often go into remission. As the mechanisms in the brain that lead to schizophrenia are being discovered, researchers are attempting to define more accurate ways of describing the disease as it relates to the biologic processes that cause them.

Recent Developments in Atypical Antipsychotic Medications
Medications help in relieving the symptoms of Schizophrenia, help the individual feel better, and can delay or prevent a relapse. The goal of medication therapy is to use the least amount of medication possible to manage the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia effectively, as well as to minimize unwanted side effects. Drug treatment is usually continuous, as relapse of symptoms is common when medication is discontinued. Schizophrenia is now being treated with new medications that are commonly called "atypical antipsychotics." These drugs have less severe side effects than the former generation of drugs used to treat this debilitating disease. Antipsychotics or neuroleptic drugs (as they're sometimes called) help relieve the positive symptoms of schizophrenia by helping to correct an imbalance in the chemicals that enable brain cells to communicate with each other. As with drug treatments for other physical illnesses, many patients with severe mental illnesses may need to try several different antipsychotic medications before they find the one, or the combination of medications, that works best for them. Conventional Antipsychotics Conventional Antipsychotics were introduced in the 1950's and all had similar ability to relieve the positive symptoms of schizophrenia. Most of these older "conventional" antipsychotics differed in the side effects they produced. These conventional antipsychotics include

Do the shelves have room for one more bonkers theory about how apes became human? You know the story: for millions of years we were big-brained but dull-witted hominids. Then, about 100,000 years ago, our brains were touched as if by a burning finger and we lit up with self-consciousness and creativity. We immediately started painting caves and worshipping gods, and became rational. The question is: what could have caused this abrupt change? Well, here is a suggestion to wet your socks: the first humans were schizophrenic. A small band of smart apes lived by a lakeshore in east Africa on a diet rich in fats, which allowed their brains to grow very large. Then a genetic defect in fat metabolism led to one child having faulty brain connections; the signalling became slightly variable. The result was a brain prone to schizophrenia, psychopathy and mania, but also creativity, curiosity and ambition. As David Horrobin imagines it, this child with "a divine discontent with the way things were" spawned a family of proto-Medicis, brilliant and ruthless, who slaughtered their neighbours and spread out to rule the world.
