Schizophrenia/ Neuropathology

Posted by Levi on August 13, 1998, at 2:54:27

As far as I know, reaserchers have not noticed any nerve cell degeneration. In other M.S. or Parkinson's, there is a visible criterion for diagnostic/treatment incentives. In schiz, what is "hiding" - does the answer perhaps lean toward the physiological structure, or activity of the nerve cells, or is it bad synaptic transmision? Or both? And We seem to be treating this NBD by means of neurotransmision, but is it possible that there is a structural, nerve cell disfigurement that for some reason doesn't show up on any microscope or scan,etc. Does anyone have input on this? When can we take the leap and diagnose NBD/schiz by physical "tests"? Does this in anyway challenge the Biological model? I guess not... It's probrably like looking for your keys when they are in your hand. Or, perhaps. a bit more complex...
