BOSTON (CNN) Where and when children are born may play a role in whether they develop schizophrenia in later life, according to the results of a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Danish researchers found that children born in an urban or suburban area, rather than a rural area, and those born in February or March had an increased risk of schizophrenia, a puzzling and disabling brain disorder that runs in families. The new research suggests that environmental factors, as well as genetics, may play a role in schizophrenia. "I think the important finding from this study is, yes genes are important, but environmental factors are at least as important," said Dr. E. Fuller Torrey of the Stanley Foundation Research Programs. "And we probably haven't paid enough attention to them."

Advertisement Paranoid Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia (SKITS-oh-FREEN-ee-uh)-one of the most damaging of all mental disorders-causes its victims to lose touch with reality. They often begin to hear, see, or feel things that aren't really there (hallucinations) or become convinced of things that simply aren't true (delusions). In the paranoid form of this disorder, they develop delusions of persecution or personal grandeur. The first signs of paranoid schizophrenia usually surface between the ages of 15 and 34. There is no cure, but the disorder can be controlled with medications. Severe attacks may require hospitalization.
The causes of schizophrenia are still under debate. A chemical imbalance in the brain seems to play a role, but the reason for the imbalance remains unclear. We do know that you're a bit more likely to become schizophrenic if you have a family member with the illness. Stress does not cause schizophrenia, but can make the symptoms worse.

CLINICAL BRAIN DISORDERS BRANCH Homepage Who can participate? What do I have to do? ... How can I get involved? Schizophrenia is a complex brain disorder affecting thoughts and perceptions. This illness affects at least 1% of the population worldwide, regardless of race, economic condition, or geographic location. Families who have one member of the family ill with schizophrenia have a greater chance of developing this illness than families who have no relative with this illness. The scientists at the National Institute of Mental Health believe that environmental factors combined with genetic predisposition lead to the development of schizophrenia. The NIMH genetic studies focus on gathering families' genetic and environmental information to better understand what places one family member at risk and conversely, what protects other family members. To this end, family members are asked to participate in a number of procedures that help scientists measure various family characteristics to see if they run in families. Genotyping, or DNA analysis, is an important part of this process. However, families should understand that this is a very complex analysis and NIMH does not plan to provide family members with individual genetic test results. The scientists believe that future treatments and preventive methods will rely heavily on the findings of this developing study. It is for this reason that we ask families to participate. Hundreds of families are needed. The staff at NIMH invites you and your family to review this website and welcome you to call us for more information.

Lead linked to schizophrenia
Study hints that prenatal toxins can trigger psychiatric disease.
17 February 2004 HELEN PEARSON Leaded gasoline exposed many mothers to toxic lead. Babies exposed to lead in the womb may be at increased risk of developing schizophrenia as adults, US researchers have revealed. Scientists know that toxins such as lead and alcohol can harm a mother's unborn child and trigger developmental problems during childhood. But the new study is one of the first to show that this damage can precipitate disorders that strike decades later. Schizophrenia is usually diagnosed in the late teens or early twenties. Ezra Susser of Columbia University, New York and his team tested stored blood samples collected from expectant California mothers between 1959 and 1966. They compared the blood lead levels of 44 women whose children went on to develop schizophrenia with 75 others whose children did not. Offspring of mothers whose blood topped 150 micrograms of lead per litre were twice as likely to develop schizophrenia as those whose blood levels were below this threshold, Susser revealed at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Seattle, and in an online paper

NPA Personality Theory Based on Mendelian Genetics Reference to Narcissistic, Obsessive-compulsive Personality and Schizophrenia
A. M. Benis, Sc.D., M.D. Summary
NPA Personality Theory
The NPA theory of personality was developed by the author on the basis of concepts described in a psychoanalytic framework over fifty years ago by Karen Horney. The theory posits three major behavioral traits underlying personality: Narcissism (N), Perfectionism (P) and Aggression (A), leading to the formulation of discrete character types. Each trait is based on a major pleiotropic gene that follows the rules of Mendelian genetics. The mode of transmission of the traits was deduced from archetypal family pedigrees. The traits N and A were found to be high frequency recessive, with P being dominant.
The theory has the power to explain aspects of personality that previously had seemed intractable to an analytical approach. In particular, it provides anyone the ability to analyze problems of interpersonal relations on the basis of readily identifiable personality types. Quite unexpectedly, it predicts a relationship between infertility (miscarriage and stillbirth) and the personality types of the parents. It also gives insight into the genetic predisposition to

What are the Symptoms of Schizophrenia?
What Causes It? How is It Treated? ... The Center for Mental Health Services Schizophrenia is the most chronic and disabling of the severe mental disorders. More than 2 million Americans are affected by schizophrenia. Contrary to the common misconception, schizophrenia does not mean "split or multiple personality." And, although people with schizophrenia often are portrayed as violent on television and in movies, that is seldom the case. In fact, people with schizophrenia are more likely to be victims of violence than perpetrators, and they tend to be shy and socially withdrawn. The illness, which may impair a person's ability to manage emotions, interact with others, and think clearly, typically develops in the late teens or early twenties. Symptoms include hallucinations, delusions, disordered thinking, and social withdrawal. Most people with schizophrenia continue to suffer chronically or episodically throughout their lives. Even between bouts of active illness, lost opportunities for careers and relationships, stigma, residual symptoms, and medication side effects often plague those with the illness. One of every 10 people with schizophrenia eventually commits suicide.
