Schizophrenia - chronic severe brain disease

The word schizophrenia comes from the Greek word schissein, meaning "splitting", and the Greek word "Frank" (Fren), meaning "diaphragm, heart, mind". This is a mental disorder that is usually manifested in an early adult or late adolescence, but it can manifest itself at any time. This is one of the diseases of the brain, which may include nonsense, excitation and loss of personality, social isolation, psychosis, confusion and strange behavior.

Most often, he amazes women aged 25 to 35 years old and men from 15 to 25 years. The disorder in many cases is developing so slowly, which is not suspected of a patient for a long time about its illness. While in other cases it can happen suddenly and develop very quickly. It is a heavy, complex, chronic and disabled disease of the brain, which suffers from about 1% of all adults worldwide. Experts say that schizophrenia is, apparently, many diseases disguised under one whole.

Studies show that this is most likely the result of the incorrect development of neurons in the brain of the fetus, which at a later age is manifested as a full-scale disease. The human brain consists of billions of nerve cells. Each nervous cell has a branch. They get and transmit messages to other nervous cells.

Neurotransmitters - types of chemicals are released at the end of these cells. These neurotransmitters transmit messages from the endings of one nervous cell to the body of another nervous cell. This messaging system does not work properly in the human brain suffering from schizophrenia.
