Scientists produce strongest evidence yet of schizophrenia’s causes

3 junio 2015

The strongest evidence yet of what causes schizophrenia – a condition that affects around 1% of the global population — has been provided by an international group of scientists. The work strongly suggests that disruption of a delicate chemical balance in the brain is heavily implicated in the disorder. The symptoms of schizophrenia can be extremely disruptive, and have a large impact on a person’s ability to carry out everyday tasks, such as going to work, maintaining relationships and caring for themselves or others.
