They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?
Schizophrenia is a very complex mental illness that is defined by a collection of symptoms including psychosis. It affects how a person, thinks, feels, and behaves. Scizophrenia affects every 1 in 300 people worldwide and the etiology is still up for debate. In this paper, I am drawing on research findings from neuroscience and biological psychiatry to take a deeper look at the environmental and biological underpinnings of schizophrenia. The discussion of how theories related to genes, biological workings, childhood, and stress can lead to diagnosis. However, there are many limitations of these theories, with this research, it is possible to look to potential avenues of treatment for Schizophrenia.
